Painting, gardening, working with youth at risk

medically retired police officer in Ontario, Canada

married for 25 years this year to my soul mate... he puts up with all my craziness about ducks!

I had a lame duck and used a video I found googling here.... and did the surgery, he is now doing great! No limping and back to his happy self.... he is my Chandler.

I joined to gain the knowledge of the many experienced duck families.
