New Years Eve brought us a wonderful, butt-wagging, foot-flapping surprise: Cruiser, our resident duck, came waddling back to our yard.Surprise of surprises! With Paul running to the kitchen tograb some multi grain bread, Mama Cruiser,who is leaner, began snorting,wiggling her way past the screen door.
She was as excited to see us as we were to see her-- at least 3 months have passed since her last visit.What better New Year’s than to haveOl’ Snorty back in our lives.
Funny how much we missed feather-butt and her almost daily visits. I was sure that my scolding had sent her off into a huff when she had voraciously grabbedthe bread from my hand, as well as my finger.
My New Year’s resolution--at least one? Cruiser, I promise not to quack at you!
