    how do you all find these things... or, do you really have ducks watching you? I can see the reality in that for some people. [​IMG]

    I read the link and I can see how that would happen. A friend of mine was afraid of feathers decades after she was attacked by a rooster as a child. She said she got over it by telling herself that she was being silly and that there is nothing wrong with a feather. A feather couldn't hurt her.
    However, I did not know of her fear and would put a pretty rooster feather in each carton of eggs I gave her. [​IMG]

    I could see it happening, if you were insured with AFLAC.[​IMG]

    Don't give Maury Povich any more crazy ideas for shows, if he's still around.

    so what is it called when someone WANTS /LIKES ducks to be watching them? LOL...We have a retaining wall that is about the same height as our kitchen window and only a few yards away from said window.The ducks quickly discovered that they can see me through that window if i'm in the kitchen...."peas ? do you have any peeeeas ...please?" ..crazy ducks!
