crop happens…

2012/052: Just Ducky

On January 24/25, 2012 we got 6 inches of rain within 24 hours, which pretty much turned our backyard into a small pond, and the little ducky got to take a little swim πŸ˜‰

    • Thanks, Doreen!
      We got that much rain in a short time before… that was 2-3 years ago. You might remember the picture I posted right here on the blog, of me ankle deep in freezing cold water, wearing flip-flops! LOL I really need to get some rubber boots! πŸ˜‰

  3. Just think if it was snow! 1″ of rain = approx. 6.25″ of snow. Cute duck.

    • I know!!!!!!! I’ve pretty much given up the hope for snow this winter… if you can even call it winter! We’re expecting temperatures close to 80 F on Thursday!!
      Thanks, Becky πŸ™‚

  4. Super cute! Looks like the rain made things pretty green too, after your long, hot, parching summer.

  5. Hey – when life gives you lemons, make lemonade! …. sorry to use such an old cliche!!

    You found a cute way to turn a small flood into a great photo op!! πŸ˜‰

    • What? Lemonade? Noo!! When life gives you lemons, you stuff them in your bra to make your boobs look bigger!! πŸ˜‰ Or throw them back and demand chocolate! Either one would work for me LOL
      Thanks, Holly.

      • *LOL*
        OK – I HAD to respond to this one!! I’m trying to picture a stuffed bra with lemons, and I’m almost falling out of my chair laughing!! Throwing them back and demanding chocolate sounds a little better to me!! πŸ˜‰

        • “Making someone laugh”….guess that’s one thing I can cross off my to-do list today πŸ˜‰

  6. is that like more rain than you got all of last year? Wow! Looks like the pirate duck enjoyed it.

    Yea, I am trying to picture a lemon stuffed bra, too. Best go with grapefruits.

    • Grapefruit?? Eeewwww! I’d DEFINITELY throw them back and demand chocolate….and not the cheap stuff either!

      It’s quite possible that this was more rain than we got all last year…we certainly didn’t get much more than that.

  7. A pirate ducky! How cute. I hope he didn’t have to walk the plank, although I guess it wouldn’t matter much since he can swim. πŸ™‚

    21. February, 2012 at 14:50

    • LOL thanks Robin. No plank to walk πŸ˜‰

  8. We had a pretty good little shower here yesterday… nothing like that though! I have a rubber duckie collection… about 50 strong! Cute pic and I don’t have a pirate. πŸ™‚

  9. You little pirate is probably saying “Yarrrrrrr” over that lovely puddle!
