Day 320 – Duck, Duck, Gray Duck

Most people know the children’s game, Duck, Duck, Goose.  98% of the country calls it that.  I’m grew up in the 2% of the country that called it Duck, Duck, Gray Duck.  I’d never heard of Duck, Duck, Goose until I moved from Minnesota and couldn’t figure out what it was.  It was a question on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire once and I was sure the person was wrong when they called it Duck, Duck, Goose.

But this isn’t about that children’s game.  I thought about it while I was down at the pond today and saw all of the ducks playing in the water.  Then a bunch of geese flew over head and the game popped into my mind.

I don’t know how the ducks could stand sitting in the water.  It was freezing out there today.

  1. Maralee, these pictures are exceptionally beautiful. That first one is almost surreal…
    I envy the ducks and geese the chance to play in the water – it is so hot here today I can almost not breathe!

    1. Thanks, Zelmare. While you’re baking, we’re starting to freeze. I think I prefer the cold over severe heat. You can only take some many clothes off when you’re hot, but you can put a lot of clothes when you’re cold.

I'd love to hear from you
