On the day of the 4th of July—-
Our kids were here from Parachute, Colorado (YAY!!!) Kelly, our son-in-law, is friends with one of the Delta Volunteer Firemen who invited Kelly and his whole family (we included) to come and see how the fireworks are set-up for the display that night.
It was fascinating!
Then that afternoon while the grandkids were playing in the canal they found a duck hiding in the grass.
Circling the duck she was saved. I now have a duck to join my hen. She was very very thin, extremely tired (the canal is very swift and hard to get out).
Her name is now Elsa.
Elsa is doing very well, ate and ate and ate, then went to sleep. Got up early and ate some more.
She has her own little pool and a yard and all the food she can eat.
I now have a Rescue Duck!
Then, in keeping with our annual family photo, it was time for the Knee-High by the 4th of July photo.
What a good time we had! (another fun piece is the two ‘new’ kids to the block call Terry and I Grandpa and Grammy! We think that is a very high compliment!)
