Jack, it sounds like you may have ducked responsibility you probably didn’t want. A bunch of duck babies is hardly ever as orderly as the proverbial ducks in a row. Of course, if they live with you, perhaps you could take a deducktion on your taxes.

I got a kick out of your “guys bench at the department store” analogy, which would make him a sitting duck. Sorry — that was sort of a lame duck joke …an ugly duckling you might say … but I wouldn’t. In any case, the fact that she had to lead him around proves a duck takes to water, but you can’t make hm drink!

Just remember, if it looks like a duck and walks like a duck, but it’s in a backyard with no water, it’s probably an odd duck.

Lord love a duck!
