    UPDATE

    Hi Guys!
    Charlie has been abduckted! Lisha caught him today and actually had to go swimming to do it! He is injured and she is taking him to Laurie as I type. I'm pretty sure Laurie has a ducky vet to take him to. I left her a message this morning telling her that I would pay for his treatment, so hopefully that will work out. :eek:) We're moving to Virginia on July 9th, so shortly after that, I'll drive down and get him from Laurie. Maybe she'll fall in love with him though???? ;o) Anyway, that's the latest and all is well. We'll just hope his injuries aren't anything serious.

    Which park? If it is Lakewood Park, that may be a problem as that is a huge community with tons of lakes...White City Park is another problem area or can be but PM me or call me with more info...my parents and son are in St. Lucie County...Fort Pierce to be exact and my sister and brother in law are in Vero Beach....Indian River County on the North St. Lucie County line.



    I will see what I can do to help. Give me as much info as you have.
