The Lucky Ducks


"What are you doing tonight?" my son said to me.
"Because I bought you some ducks at Dels and they would like you to pick them up tonight"

My Mother's Day present. My duck loving son bought 5 ducks for me.

So Hubby and I took a little trip to Port Orchard to pick up the ducks.
The bored salesgirl showed me to the stock tank that contained the baby ducks. Preparing to hand pick my little ducklings, I was surprised when she started just grabbing any duckling she could get a hold of and plopping it in the box. I started to protest and then decided to chill and let fate take over. The ones she caught were the lucky ducks.


Lucky to come live beyond the sidewalks.

They are so cute, and good for you for taking a breath and letting fate fall into place. We all should do that more often!

Smiles,

What lucky ducks! I like to let things just happen sometimes. It's difficult to stop and do that. At least your son knew what you would like for Mother's Day. Good boy!

Fabulous birds. And just think of all the duck egg omlets.

I love the duckies! They are so sweet. I guess you can consider it fate for you and the ducks.
