Marilyn Monroe in my jacuzzi tub

If it’s not one thing…image

…it’s a freakin’ ‘nother.image

Do you ever stop and ask yourself, “Is my life normal?”  I wondered that today as I was feeding mealworms and frozen corn to a female Rouen duck named (but not by me) Marilyn Monroe, who currently resides in a dog crate in the master bathroom.  When she’s not paddling ’round the jacuzzi tub with her one good leg, that is.

“How are we going to sleep with all that quacking?” Phil asks me. I dunno, drink ’til we pass out maybe?

But we can’t do that.

Because Marilyn Monroe needs her syringe full of pain meds, that’s why, and I’m starting to get just a teensy bit jealous of the jacuzzi-n-drugs lifestyle the poultry around here lead while Phil and I sweat in the blazing sun working on fences to keep the wild animals from eating the domestic animals and the domestic animals from eating every last berry, vegetable, and herb on the property.

All I can say is these duck eggs, when they start laying in a couple of months, better be the BEST darn eggs we’ve ever tasted to make up for all the hassle these critters cause.

  1. Marilyn Monroe needs her syringe full of pain meds, that’s why, and I’m starting to get just a teensy bit jealous of the jacuzzi-n-drugs lifestyle the poultry around here lead while Phil and I sweat in the blazing sun working on fences blah blah blah I hate the ducks blah blah blah blah

    I want to live the jacuzzi-n-drugs lifestyle too. I’m moving to your house.

    Do you ever stop and ask yourself, “Is my life normal?”

    About 4 times a day. And the answer is “No.”

    That cracked me up. As Homer Simpson would say, “It’s funny ’cause it’s true!”

  2. I never know what I’ll find here. As for normal, it may be overrated.
    I don’t know if you want Marilyn Monroe to see this. It may count as duck porn.

    • Western Grebes, they are truly incredible. My wife just looked at them, never said a word. What can you say?

      Males and females love to dance, my wife loved me to polka at old style dances. But then she said she knew that she had found a culture almost two generations behind hers and she intended to stay right there ;-D

    • Sorry it is so quiet! The kids are gone to summer camp, so Phil and I have been working on stringing some electric fence wire around the top of the duck yard since we aren’t putting a roof on it but we need to keep climbing predators like raccoons out.
