The post office called at 6 a.m. and said, "We've got two boxes. One's honking, one's quacking. Please hurry."
I only had time to take one picture of the ducks before the heat fogged my lens. One duckling has a little crown of yellow feathers, rather like a hat from the 1940s. I'll have to puzzle out the breeds later.
On the way back to the house, I found a tiny feather and placed it on my writing tray (feathers, shells, starfish, rocks, etc).
We've had a busy, but interesting June--windows spontaneously shattering (well, just one), broken air conditioner, refrigerator on the blink. So far the score is,
House: 3, Michael: 0.
Like Mama says, "As long as it isn't something really serious--or a healthy issue."
Bandwidth has been complaining of back pain and had a CT scan today--poor guy has a herniated disk. Big says there's no treatment; not even physical therapy will help. Bandy played college football for two years before switching to rugby--a likely cause of the injury.
An hour later, Chef Trey called while driving to the hospital. He's having a CT of the abdomen (pain, high white blood cell count).
Fingers crossed for both boys.
More details tomorrow on Foodie Friday.
