    :p

    Well... obviously you don’t speak muppet...

    In muppet, “orska vorska dorska meatball” means “quack, quack, quack, golf ball”...

    ....things get a little bit lost in translation... but that’s to be expected with ducks. ;)

    At least your ducks quack, I've never hear a cluck cluck here or a cluck cluck there from my chickens, they make all kind of weird sounds...

    I have a burn pile where I burn stumps and brush etc... the last few days I’ve been burning fallen sticks and limbs ...

    .... the last two evenings I just stir the coals in the ashes to get it going again...

    Last night this turtle was laying in the ashes, I guess she liked the warmth...

    I moved her so I could get the fire going again and she went right back... so I had to move her further off... silly turtle!

    I named her...... Ashley :rolleyes:

    Apparently a turtle on the ash pile is a bad omen...

    My wife called from the gas station and said the truck was on fire!

    She’s fine, every thing else is good, no body got hurt and the folks at the gas station have a story to tell... but I think this might hurt resale, lol

    I got back from Florida today. (Pompano Beach) Here's a few flora and fauna pics
    White Ibis

    Iguanas have become common (and nuisances) in southern FL, this one, minus tail is about 15" long.

    curly tailed lizard.jpg little 'curly tail lizard'
    gardenia.jpg gardenias!
    trumpet flowers.jpg Angel trumpet
    mango.jpg I picked a mango for breakfast yesterday, can't compare to what we buy here in the supermarket....
    Tomorrow I'll post some pics of my chicks, who have grown a lot in 4 days. My DH took good care of all the chickens, but they were all very glad to see me.
