What you gonna do, when your 8-year-old and her 9-year-old friend walk with five ducklings in a box to your house and knock on your front door? That’s a good question. After we asked the girls, where they found them, Kevin and I were debating what we gonna do with the quintet. Then I released the ducklings exactly there, were the girls found them. I kept an eye on them, while they walked toward the creek. And that’s where I thought were they belong. I followed them with a safe distance. One was stuck under a car, because a cat “trapped” it. No duckling for dinner tonight, Mr. Kittycat!!! I startled the cat, and it ran under another car. But what did that little duckling? It follows that darn cat. After I blocked the way to the cat and its sibling called louder, the little duck finally reunited with the other four. I don’t know, if they made it. But all five waddled happily to the creek. Hopefully Momma Duck is waiting with the other siblings down by the water’s edge.

My name is Tanja. I live in a small North Texas city within the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) Metroplex. I have a little house with a suburban yard, a hard working husband, who likes to have a nice cooked meal after work, three kids (24, 15, and 9 years old), two dogs, two cats, and some critters in the backyard. In 2004, I immigrated with my husband and my middle child from Germany to the United States of America. My husband was stationed as an Army Soldier in Germany from 2000 until 2004. His tour in Europe brought him also to Africa and the Middle East. We met, while I worked in a big retail store for the US Armed Forces in Germany. The rest is history. I love traveling, and visited 34 US states and Ontario, Canada so far. No worries, I still will see the other 16 states and more Canadian Territories. It’s on my bucket list. Speaking of “Bucket List”: One of my biggest dreams is to travel to Australia and New Zealand. But after all my favorite spot is sitting on a chair in my yard under a shaded tree drinking a cup of tea, while watching my kids and my pets playing together. And I like to watch the Sun setting; the Moon, the planets and the stars rising in the night sky. So here is my blog page and I invite you virtually to my little corner of planet Earth.
