Look what I found outside my hotel yesterday? I'd like some ducks of my own, if I only had a nice big pond or something in my back yard (if, say, I had a back yard). If I didn't travel so much, maybe some ferrets instead. Or some cats! I miss my cats--we had five at home, which is no small undertaking. We're lucky that they got along as well as they did; I think cats store enough energy to reduce a leather couch to very tiny shards in less time than it takes for the hissing to travel across the house.
