Bea's Back

Momma Duck (MD)has been really busy this week. And tired. And hot. So she's letting me tell you what's been going on. But first, she's making me show you why I was on a time out.

I didn't mean to eat the whole thing. I just wanted a little snack and it looked so tasty. So I nibbled a few leaves. Then a few more. Before long, it was half gone. I knew I was going to be in trouble anyway, so I finished it off. MD was really mad. Because not only had I eaten an entire plant, I also made a bit of a mess seeing as that the plant gave me the runs, but even tho I'm a runner, I didn't run. I just stood there. With the runs. Get the picture. OK
 I didn't tell her but I really did have a tummy ache. It didn't seem like the right time to complain. So I suffered in silence.

Enough of that, now on to the big news of the week. Thursday morning Daddy Duck let me out as usual
I love going out in the morning--I usually head right to my pond but something seemed a little strange
Whuuutttt the....

 We have a pwoblem..

 Hey that's MY food

Well, 2 can play at that game

Everything worked out fine. The big one gave me a bloody beak. Then we all played tag

And hide and seek

Then we took a bath

The End.


  1. Wow! I understand why MD put you into time-out! Hope you don't do that again...glad you have some fun little playmates! Hope the big one is good with that - sounded like she played also? You worried me when you said that "then we all took a bath"... ;-) Keep up the good posts!

  2. Just a postscript: don't mess with them when the tails are poofy....

  3. Are the kitties yours? Or are they drifters? Sure are cute.

  4. They are from our neighbors across the road. Drifters is a good word to describe our relationship. We fed her intermittently-and a couple months ago she showed up obviously pregnant. Then Thursday morning showed up with these well-grown, though needy, kittens. She is still nursing them and I think Bea is wishing she had nipples. We are a dysfunctional, attachment disorder family unit. don't think they were getting fed so now need to figure out where to go from here...really don't want to deal with a herd of cats.

  5. Ha! I love this post. And Bea is looking so beautiful!
