Interesting Morning

I was woke up early this morning by an unfamiliar sound outside my bedroom window.  What could it be?  No, It can't be!!  It must be a dream.  Chris and I get out of bed a little while later and I ask him, "Did you hear a quacking sound outside the bedroom window this morning?"  If only I had gotten a picture of his expression right there, it would have been priceless.  Well we start going about our morning..coffee, breakfast and then I take a step outside on the back deck to see how warm it is and there it is, the Aflac duck!
I ran to get my camera and as soon as he saw me he took off in a run into the woods so I didn't get a good picture of him.  So where did he come from?  Turns out the neighbor, my brother, got a new pet and is having a hard time keeping him in the yard.  Have you ever had to call a neighbor to tell them that their pet duck is in your yard?  



Then I go out back to let my trusted friend off of his chain and I am worried that he is going to chase the duck around the yard.  What can I do to occupy the dogs attention.  AhHa, I have been saving a ham bone in the freezer for just this occasion.  YUM.

And then, the plot thicken.....

As I am in the house typing this blog entry, another guest arrives in my yard.  It's the neighbor, and he came with a net.  I found out that it is a girl duck and her name is Angel.
No luck on the duck search.  Maybe it will show up tomorrow morning again.



***********UPDATE*********
Several hours later.....Angel has been found!!!

That is an interesting pet. It reminds me of the show Friends when Joey had a pet duck. Now they just need a chicken!

Tabby....I think they do have a chicken?!? You do have interesting neighbors. Why did the duck cross the road?!? (maybe ask the chicken)
