Hi guys & gals, another busy week has just buzzed by. I started my week very organised, something that I am not usually. I did not break tradition as my organisation went out the window and all the things that were planned, well, they followed out the window. LOL!
We had to purchase a new computer yesterday so this has taken me completely off course from what I was meant to be doing. Which was............can't remember!! LOL
So.....as with all new computers comes the transferring of all the crap that we have stored in our precious computers. I am half way through and all was going smoothly until I tried and tried and tried to find "Outlook Express" which is what I use for my emails. WELL....it seems we have another corporation that likes to change things that aren't broken. Microsoft have decided that Outlook Express is no longer needed. This new computer has windows 7. The latest program. No Outlook....AAARRRGGGHHH!
I had to start using my internet providers email based program and I had to sit and manually....sorry did I say manually...yeah I think I did...yes manually send each indvidual email and each contact from my address book to myself in my new email program. I have just a few emails, yeah right! in my inbox not to mention address book. The only thing that I felt good about was the amount of emails I received. God I am popular. Oh that's right, they were from myself! hehehehehehe
I have to say that windows 7 is nice and simple and I now won't go blind with a 23 inch monitor to stare at. 8-) YAY.....
So enough of my waffling. You know our dear little quacker friends? Mother nature is not easy for us soft hearted animal lovers sometimes so I won't dwell on it too much but I have to share some pics and it will be obvious. The numbers have changed. 8-( But on the upside they are still visiting and last saturday they came for their morning tucker. One of the ducklings seemed very weak and Martha was about to leave when I noticed that the weak one was not going to keep up. I picked it up and Martha didn't seem to fussed about this, which was very strange. Maybe she knew he was in good hands. She waddled off with the rest of the tribe and this little tike spent the best part of the day with us. We have nicknamed him "Squirt"
Jack kept him snug and with a little bit of TLC, bread and water he was one happy camper. Time for a nap!
Two gorgeous boys!
Now we have a happy ending to this. Later that day Martha returned with the rest of the troops for their afternoon feast. We took Squirt outside and just placed him down with the others. Martha gave a quack and mother & son were back together. Squirt was well rested and full of beans again. Since then he has not tired one bit. They visit 4 times a day and he is not missing out when it's feed time. He clearly is a squirt. The others have grown quite a bit more than him but he keeps up.
The Awesome foursome!!!
