>Ducks

Do you remember on Sesame Street when they sang the song ,”One of these things is not like the other…”? Well we have a ‘couple’ in our duck populace that stands out from the rest. She is ‘different’. They have been together for a couple of years now, and evey time I see them I’m amazed. I have yet to see them with a line of ducklings following behind, I think that’s sad, I would love to see what they look like.
Speaking of seeing things differently, I’ve had a couple of instance where my brian would not accept what it was looking at. Just a few weeks ago Bill and I went into my in-laws house and as we were passing through the kitchen I saw plants growing (mind you, nobody lives there yet). I knew something was wrong, but couldn’t figure out what. It was poison Ivy! Plants growing out of a wall isn’t normal, my brain had to work to realize what it saw.
Another time was when we were in Hays KS. We lived a block from the university and we were surrounded by all those lovely student homes. One Sunday morning I made my way down the steps and to the kitchen. I noticed someone sleeping on our couch. Again, it took awhile before my brain could digest that there was a total stranger sawing logs in our living room.

There’s some interesting videos done on this subject.

I realize how much I focus inwardly, or on my immediate surroundings (children, pets, advertisements, etc) while I’m journeying through life and how little attention people outside my circle of concern get. I think I need to pay more attention to people, there may be more ‘ducks’ aroundme than I realize!

    >Yes Joellen, Harrison has lip fuzz! That irritatating hair that scratches my cheek when he kisses me good night. The Ivy found it’s way through the siding and found a hole somewhere, tough stuff. Hopefully they’ll be in by the end of winter, they have to sale there place in AK.
