I look forward to these whistling ducks. I get happy when i see them here.

Did i ever tell you my parents were performers? My daddy was a musician and my mom an acrobat . . Now you won't be too surprised when i tell you the way you stacked stuff - that the ducks found to rest in . . reminds me of a plate balancing act in the circus . . . another reason for me to smile, snort and giggle today.

May Your Day be filled with Joy!!!
