Today's walk report: 110516, Breaking News!

This is a walk report special report...

Yesterday, 11/04/16, we took an early evening walk to our familiar garden hang. Of late we've been checking the garden pond hoping for the fall return of our dear duck friends, Docken and Eric (named after us because they're very much like us). We walked around the pond, let out a few quacks but alas, no ducks. We moved over to a bench about 20 yards from the pond, sat and yakked. Lo and behold about 10 minutes in I see something waddling towards us out the corner of my eye. It was them! About 5 and 1/2 months since we last saw them they must have recognized our voices (we know this to be true) and they came walking over to greet us. You have no idea how happy we were to see these guys. And fortunately we had organic oatmeal for them--everyone was happy.

With this morning's trek to the garden they seemed as excited to see us as we were to see them.

The music was a simple solution for dealing with bad audio from the camera. The song, Acquiring The Taste by Gentle Giant was chosen based mostly on a matching duration. Apparently if you live in Germany you won't be able to view the video because of copyright--Entschuldigung (sorry). Please watch the video full screen for the full effect.
