7am wake-up call

... so much for a lazy summer morning. Got a call from the post office, 'live animals have arrived, pick-up asap!' So excited... in fact Savannah was the only one that would go with me in my gleeful state. That's my GIRL! We rushed to the P.O just to find out that they weren't even open til 8:30am, that'll take the glee right out of a couple gals. So we went inside and decided to wait. Thankfully, my favorite postfella, the one that said I had beautiful eyes (noted in prior post), came out to restock shelves. I asked him if he had a 'box of quackers' in the back. He giggled and said, "nope, but I have a box of squealers". Here's my chance... I asked if I could relieve them of the noisy critters now, or did I need to wait til 8:30. He gladly brought them right out. There were already several people buying stamps out of the machines and dropping off letters that HAD to know what on earth we had in the box! A little more attention than Savannah or I necessarily wanted in our ratty tat clothes, no makeup, and unbrushed hair, no joking... but we were too excited to care at that moment.

Here's is my sweet 7am riser with her favorite duckling. It is the smallest and loudest. She tends to find the little runts and spoil them. She calls it pipsqueak! Very appropriate. Anyone want to come see them? They grow fast!

Carden asked when Granny's Garden Club day was so we could see the ducks... can we invite ourselves over to see the little things? :)

Hopefully I'll be visiting Woodser Belle's Farm soon, so I'll try to hop on over (literally, thanks to the trench) and see your latest addition. How adorable! And you do have pretty eyes. :)

I love ducks! I have had 4 pet ducks so far. 3 were mallards and didn't really want to be tamed, but the fourth was like a guard dog. She chased cats out of the yard and followed my dad around all day long in the yard. I want to get some ducks again once Addie gets older.

I love the black ones. My friend and I found some abondoned ones at Big Spring Park a while ago and we just wanted to play with them and hold them while we were there...big mistake! They decided to follow us everywhere and we couldn't just leave the poor things there by themselves, so yes...I admit...we stole ducks from Big Spring Park...haha. They were so cute and fun, but they really do grow SO fast!

Wow! I am so behind on everything! I'll make it out there one of these days to see those little ducklings-- although they may be fully grown by then!! ;-)
