Mad Ducks

We were given until the 11th to find homes for the ducks, but Animal Control people have changed their minds.  With net in hands, ducks were going to be captured.  In spite of the 11th deadline, Animal Control will be back tomorrow.   I want to save the remaining birds but I can only do just so much at a time!  Do this.  Do that. Get a permit here.  Get a permit there.  Oy! Tote that bar.  Lift that bale!  On top of that, we have to get this estate sale ready.

And just when you think you can’t take any more…
