This Little Light of Mine

Crystal sent this marvelous Duck Candle. (Even though it is a Crystal Duck, it is a Wax Duck!)
I need to make a wax statue of myself. Then I could get lit up and be brighter! Also I could experience the water-off-a-duck's-back phenomenon. I don't really want to light the duck .... but then I hate to waste a good candle .... what a conundrum. For now, I'm content to sit a look. Wax is lighter than water - like a duck, it floats. Maybe ducks are martial arts experts? Wax-on ..... Wax-off ...........
Spring has arrived at the Duck Farm and the daffodils are in bloom. I'm gonna go look at daffodils and think about ducks!

It's No Duck .... It's Snow Duck!!!

During a Nob Hill winter precipitation event, a snow duck flew in and landed on the car. Then a snowman decided to try out rodeo tricks. While Duck Riding is not a particularly well known rodeo activity at this time, because Rod's Duck Farm is such a widely followed international blog you can be sure the word will spread quickly to eliminate any discrimination faced by ducks in the rodeo arena.
Soon, Duck Riding will be standard conversation at the dinner table. Of course, one can readily see why most ducks fly south for the winter - to escape winter Duck Riding events. Winter rodeo is only for the most adventuresome of ducks. I think I'll stick with Duck Writing.
