"Hurry up with that stick!"

Uploaded Image

Phew! It's been one hell of a fortnight...will blog it later.

What's the craic?
Have I missed anything?
Is anyone snowed in?

Very cold here....heated debates on many of the local radio stations this morning, as it would seem that some major roads have not been gritted or salted....very very dangerous...so I'm staying home today to catch up on tedious jobs.

This is 'Duck Dogers' (so named by my 9 year old nephew!!). He was most indignant this morning when I was late with the stick to break the ice on the pond. Each morning when I let the ducks out they head straight for the pond and dive in. The first time it was frozen, duck 1 still dived, slid across the ice, and ducks 2 to 6 screeched to a halt on the brink! It looked comical, but I felt terrible, as duck 1 had a horrible experience, and needed help to get off of the ice!!
Anyway, have a good day y'all

Ivy's Avatar Sall de bain how good is your German? There is actually a children song in German about ducks going skating. They ask the smith to make them skates and pay them with a duck song.Maybe you could sing it to Duck Dogers he may feel a bit better after itVery Happy
