It's a Duck Thing...

    I don't know why I've been snapping pictures of naturally refrigerated waterfowl lately, but it's fun getting used to this new camera of mine.  It's got more things than a neophyte such as myself could ever use or understand.  But, I like it. 

    Anyway, here's another shot of a frozen pond with ducks. 


    Anyway, the weather here has actually been remarkably warm considering it's December in Wisconsin, and usually, by this time of year, I'm huddled up in front of the self-cleaning oven clutching a bottle of whiskey with my mittened little mitts while my fur-coated cats laugh at me. 

    However, my perpetually pessimistic brother dropped by yesterday to remind me that it is, in fact, winter by telling me, "we're going to pay for this weather in February.  We'll be buried under twelve-feet of snow, it's going to be dark and we're all going to die.  Oh!  And how old is this ham in your fridge?"

    Anyway, I'm off to enjoy the balmy, unseasonably warm thirty-three degree day (hey!  At least it's above freezing).  Perhaps I'll see if I can find a nice picture of ducks doing duck-type things on less solid water. 



  1. They are so cute and your new camera rocks...the pics are great!  Your brother sounds like my dad.  

    be well,

  2. awww what cute ducks.

  3. Nice! Yeah, there is something endearing about the little quackers.

  4. "Make Way For Ducklings" is still my favorite book, and I'm 30+
