Mail-Order Ducks

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.

Foodie Friday

Bandwidth stopped by an old fashioned hamburger joint. Just blink your headlights, and a perky waitress will run outside and take your order. Bandy added a salad. It's the perfect meal for two writers(and even Big loved it).
