They’re vain! They’re doing it for the mirror!

    I turned your vain duckie into a puzzle. I’m going to try to post the link. If it won’t link here… an admin might need to do it, but I think it’d be a blast for your readers to see this and find out how to do it!

    This album is actually only in my personal page of the ‘jigzone’ site. Without a link, other people really won’t see the album. I can rename the album if you dislike the name Suzanne, or I will certainly delete the whole thing if you prefer. I used your name because they’re your photos as well as your critters. They’re only up there for your (and your reader’s) enjoyment. Let me know and I’ll follow your wishes completely!

    No, I think that’s awesome! Thank you!!

    What a great picture! I love puddle ducks. Although if it doesn’t stop raining over here soon enough, we’ll all be puddle ducks!

    Much love from an overseas Army wife,

    To my white feathered ducky friend…

    Do not worry about appearing to be vain!…You are a duck in the mirror…unable to make a change…!
    Arrogance tends to congregate or…uh…ducks of a feather flock together so to speak! So go ahead and be proud of your appearance, confident in the fact that your brothers and sisters are like you but different…
    Flaunt and preen your beautiful self with tempered conceit so that your falling white feathers will be a sign from the guardian angels…a hopeful, floating, reflective peace to others.

    PS…You might slow down that “swaggering” a little bit when you waddle out of the pond…it can be a little annoying observed from the back-side!
