Quackie's Return

“We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone.” - Orson Welles

We drove past our neighboring pond yesterday and, though it's still partly frozen, it has an occupant: Quackie is back.

I have mixed feelings about Quackie's return. I admit to enjoying watching him paddle around and just be a duck, but as noted in my post (linked above to his name -- do give it a read), he's alone and it breaks my heart.

Do I go knock on those people's door and offer to get them more ducks? Do I hope Quackie finds his own mate -- or at least some wild mallard friends? Other waterfowl stop by occasionally on their trips to wherever: Canadian geese, mallards and the occasional heron. But they don't stay. And when they ARE there, Quackie hangs out with them and just seems so happy.

He needs a flock. Birds aren't meant to be alone.

I hope this is the year Quackie gets his HEA.


You Are a Green Cell Phone

You are down to earth, calm, and practical. You are content with your life.

You don't need the latest and greatest toys. In fact, you've sometimes wondered if we're too dependent on cell phones these days.

You are happiest when you're out in nature or at home doing simple tasks. Your inner peace really glows.

You are community minded and socially aware. You know that it's not just all about you.

That's about right.

Aw, Quackie is so adorable! I hope a duck of the opposite gender would stop by, fall in love, and decide to stay. I think this birdy needs a HEA!

I'm hoping Quackie gets his HEA, too! Poor Quackie.

You Are an Orange Cell Phone
You are flamboyant, quirky, and even a little fiery. There's no way you're going to have a cell phone like everyone else has!
You march to your own beat - if there's even a beat at all. You're always doing your own thing.
You are the opposite of status conscious. You like what you like ... and that usually happens to be what no one else likes.
You are inspired and creative. You love the life you have created, and you would never want to be normal.

Um, huh. Not really.

Hope you have a sensational day!

I hope Quackie gets his HEA too.

re quiz: I'm green cell phone and it is 85% accurate.

Hope you're having a good day.

Quackie definitely needs a girlfriend!
