something got one of the ducks
well we are down a duck. the other day I went out and one was missing. no blood. no feathers strewn across the yard. nothing. the duck is just GONE. the other ducks aren't lending any clues. so I'm left wondering.
aliens? maybe. I should call Bill Birnes. did you know that guy has a Ph.D and is a lawyer? wow. but this would be right up his alley. the aliens might have just beamed poor Sunshine right up to their craft without so much as a feather left behind.
more than likely one of our neighbors hunting dogs crossed the fence line and "retrieved" a duck. now, that seems reasonable. not pleasant but reasonable. we erected a little fence to keep things like that from re occuring.
