Awww Baby Duckies
If they had just come by earlier they would have had a puddle to swim in. When John came home from the ranch this morning he saw a mama wild duck (wood duck I think) with her little brood crossing the street going into our neighbors yard. By the time he came in the house and told me and I got my camera they were gone. Couldn't find them anywhere. I didn't get down on my knees to look under my storage shed as I was dressed for an appointment. We got a nice rain this afternoon and it cooled down. There is a good size mud puddle at the end of the street so if Mrs. Duckie and her brood comes back they will have a little water to swim in. That is if she doesn't wait too long as this is probably just a little break for us and much appreciated. Our county, a rancher, and our cattle auction and the owner were on the San Antonio local news today. Telling how the ranchers are having to feed so much it is getting to not be worth their while and many are having to sell out.
