Rod's Duck Farm Spider Removal Technique

Brown Recluse Spider - How to remove it from somebody's ear - the Rod's Duck Farm Way
1. Get a flashlight. Look in the ear.
2. Get some water. Pour it into the ear.
3. Get tweezers. Grasp a spider leg and pull.

Leta Mae had "something" in her ear. She wanted it evicted. With a flashlight, I looked in the ear and saw two spider legs and said, "Hmmmmmmmmm."

Remembering the Itsy Bitsy Spider, I instructed Leta Mae to turn her head in such a way that the ear canal was pointing up. Pouring water into the ear did not seem to do much good so I located some tweezers (a manicure kit is a good place to look for tweezers). I was concerned that I would have to fight with the spider and his leg might break off but apparently the spider was sufficiently comatose from being drowned with the water - he came out like a piece of lint.

Rod's Duck Farm wonders .... Is a duck watching you?

Quack (X) here to see the story
Anatidaephilia is an obsessive love of ducks. Does it bother you that a duck might be watching?

On the other hand, if you love watching ducks, that is See-Ducktion!
Quack, Quack!

Rod's Duck Farm - Is it a Mudpuddle without Water?

A pothole is just a pothole UNLESS it rains. Then it is a mudpuddle, a duck sanctuary. Soubriquet has recorded this truth in graphic format at his blog (link below).

Sometimes, safe drinking water is in short supply. That's a problem for people and ducks. According to Forbes magazine, the World Health Organization claims that "polluted water is the world's deadliest foe, killing 1,400 people a day." AND I might add, no telling how many DUCKS!!!
Of course 1,400 people a day might be rather inconsequential. After all, 1400 a day is only 5 million a year, not enough to keep the world population from its continued expansion.

In conclusion, little kids and ducks have the right idea. If you see a mudpuddle, jump in with both feet!
Quack, Quack!
