    Memories By The Duckpond

    I know that when life gets too much for me I can always return to my hometown and lose myself in the memories. One of the highlights of my childhood was the ducks and geese on the farm. I would sit on the fence and throw cracked corn to them, or if they were down in the pond I...

    They Are Soooo Cute!

    When you can go to a park with a nice pond and just enjoy nature it is the best thing in the world. I found out recently though that the park that I loved to do this at no longer allows it! Totally sucks!

    King of Ducks

    I used to work at a movie theater next to a park which had a duck pond, and I would save all the popcorn at the end of my shift. So, After I got off late at night I would bring a large leftover bag of popcorn into the park late at night. When I say a large bag of...
