Duck Fever

The Mallard Family
Flying high over the wheat fields of North Dakota
(great picture - not mine)

Drake:  Pen, Let's just stop down there for lunch
Henny Penny:  It must be good, the parking lot is full

Drake:  Wait, something doesn't look right.

Henny Penny:  It must be really good.
They are playing duck, duck, goose

And we can land right there on that bale of hay
or on that pile of straw
 Drake:  Penny look what just popped out of the hay bales
and that pile of straw has a camera

Who do they think they are fooling?
I think I'll fly down there and give them a piece of my mind.

Henny Penny: DRAKE!!

This isn't exactly the way it happened,
but while I was being invisible in my Ghillie Suit
and the guys were hiding in their Coffin Blinds,
I got really tickled.
(sorry guys)
Intelligent adults
hiding from ducks

The ducks would circle, take a look, then turn around
and fly by again for another look.
I started thinking about what the
 duck conversation high in the sky might be like.

I had to control myself or it was going to be
like one those laughing in church times
( when you are shaking all over and crying on the outside
while trying not to belly laugh or snort).
Besides, the ducks might see my shaking straw!

But they had a great time anticipating the hunt,
 getting all that great hunting gear together,
and getting away from work for a little while.

Isn't that what it's about?
The anticipation
The camaraderie
The adventure
The story

and I cooked Peking Duck

So ends another adventurous day
on the
Prairies of North Dakota

(I won't get invited back if they read this...)

Thanks for joining us.
