    I have a morning routine. At about 545 a.m. every morning, as the sun is coming up good, I go out to the duck pens and let everybody out. I give them a little breakfast, make sure all the pools have fresh cool water and then I head back inside. I put the coffee on and while I'm waiting for it to brew I get some treats ready for the ducks. Then I take my coffee, my work laptop, my camera, and the treats and go outside and enjoy an hour before the rest of the house start sgetting up, just me and my ducks.

    Well yesterday morning just as I was heading outside, my mother called. She kept me on the phone for about 30 minutes, so I was a little late getting out there. As I'm walking down the hall with my hands full of the stuff to take outside, I hear a tap tap tapping at the screen door.. I look down through the window and can't believe who I see knocking on the door...

    My runners know the routine, also - and if I change it, I hear about it! They also know if I am at home or away. If I am at home, in the house, they call for me. If I am away, the neighbors tell me they are absolutely quiet.
