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.
Sara wanted to go to the turtle pond at Bill Allen Memorial Park, this afternoon. The weather was very nice. And Katelynn wouldn’t come home from school for another two hours.
When we walked on the paved trail, we saw some wild flowers, and a few critters roamed in the park. A red-eared slider turtle was hiding in the reeds by the pond. Since it is mating season, some dragonflies chased each other for that particular reason across the pond. Walking back to the car, Sara and I saw a Mallard couple resting at the creek. And two squirrels jumped from one tree to the ground and back into another tree. Yes, there was a lot of wildlife out and about this afternoon. It was fun to watch them.
