It was pouring down rain here yesterday. I put on my bright orange slicker and carried my dad's big old multicolored golf umbrella in an attempt to stay dry when I went out to clean the duck houses. Now, I have read that ducks do not like bright colors. And I did hesitate when I put the jacket on and started out....but I really wanted to stay dry. Turns out the ducks are about as scared of bright colors as the spouse is! (I can only get him navy, forest green, tan, brown, gray clothing....). Ducks went into a frenzy of fear. I quickly closed the umbrella, took off the slicker, and got soaked through three layers of clothing....but the ducks were happy and houses were clean.
