Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!
Have you ever been on a leisurly stroll in your local mall, only to find yourself run off of the floor by a group of shoppers who are walking side by side across the entire aiseway and refuse to give up an inch of space?
That’s how I feel as I walk around my neighborhood some days!
In this instance, I’m not talking about two-footers. Because I live in an area that attracts a lot of walkers, runners, joggers, and dog-owners, most of the humans I encounter are fairly well-mannered when it comes to sidewalk protocol. But the waterfowl – they are a different breed all together!
Don’t get me wrong – I am always thrilled to encounter the waterfowl. I love watching the ducks swim in the water and interact with one another – I’ve learned so much about them simply by watching them during my random encounters! They are quite devoted to their families and quite community oriented birds. They definitely consider the community I live in their home.
But their sidewalk manners leave something to be desired.
I frequently encounter various types of community ducks when I walk. They are obviously used to humans clearing the path for them to let them cross. They often stop cars (and human hearts!) in their path as they cross the driveways and the streets. Just like our local squirrels, I sometimes wonder if they are a little too comfortable in their surroundings for their own good.
When Tsunami first joined our household, we introduced him to Jake the Duck just for fun. He was less than impressed by the encounter…
