    So far it looks like 9 out of the 10 ducks are male. So now we have to eat them all and go back to Tractor Supply for more ducklings. I wish they sold older birds so we could just buy ones we know are female.
    We don't know yet what the chickens are. They are not old enough.

    New pets! Actually, we got these because people are panic-buying all the eggs in the stores. They are also panic-buying the older babies (closer to egg-laying age) so the two-day-olds are all that the feed store had. It will be 5-6 months before we get eggs from them. The stores should have eggs again by then, but so will we!
    I'm total, there are 10 ducklings and 6 chicks. We will eat whichever ones turn out to be males (my dog has called dibs on their feet - best treat ever, according to her).

    My previous kitty, Banjo. He was a stray who showed up here already neutered. Vet estimated he was between 1 and 2 years old. He appeared several days after my father passed away from thyroid cancer and I was living here alone, around Oct. or Nov. 2010. We had many good times 'til he passed away suddenly in early 2017. :-(

    Meh. Attached picture does not appear, and I am not sufficiently motivated to troubleshoot.

    Spock. We found him as a stray as a kitten, yet he was neutered already. It's possible he was picked up by one of the government spay/neuter programs and re-released, or that he was just abandoned by another owner.

    I told my wife - "from this perspective, he looks HUGE!!!"

    (He's right at 40 lbs)

    He seems to be worried when we're in the pool. He won't come in, but he'll just stay there and watch us.

    He liked to show off his muscles.

    Sir Louie, May 4, 2005 - March 30, 2019. He was a Star Wars dog.
    This was his standard pose at the dinner table.
