I'm gonna resort to a few fun photos. And probably some more chit chat. People from all around stop by with their children to make use of the park, playground and most families bring along some snacking foods for the gulls, ducks and geese. Eventually, out of nowhere a few pigeons arrive to dine.
Nearby, a family residence has chickens and peacocks, the hens and roosters sometimes surmise the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, so they venture out of their yard and head for the morsels in the park's lawn so very near the resident Muscovy ducks!! Did you know Muscovy ducks are mostly 'silent' ducks. They don't quack but usually hiss or make a more inner-grunting.
In the following photo, this instance reminded me of the Adam Sandler song..."Lunch Lady Land"....
The ducks are all lined up in the lunch line where kids on the bank of the pond had finished feeding them some bread...a favorite meal!! Sorry, we're out of meatloaf...come again soon. Next time we'll be serving sloppy joes.
LUNCH LADY LAND Lyrics
It's now August!! Autumn is fast approaching. But of course, we still have to get through more Summer heat. And, each year, on the first day of August, Bud and I go on a witch hunt!! That is, the store Tuesday Morning always begins selling their witches!!! We bought three. I'll show them in another post when it gets closer to my favorite holiday...Halloween. Speaking of Halloween...I have a question for anyone that would like to give me some input. When you were a youngster or teen...did you ever go on a scavenger hunt when attending a party? I thought that maybe I'd make a list for an Autumn/Halloween themed PHOTO SCAVENGER HUNT. And there would be a prize for one lucky participant....
WOULD YOU BE UP FOR PLAYING?
Let me know. I'd be more than happy to make a list for you to 'hunt' for the items on the list for a 'door prize'!!!
And lastly today, we saw Mission Impossible this weekend. As much as I dislike Tom Cruze [spelling intentional], the movie wasn't half bad. In fact, I was a bit impressed. Loved the car/motorcycle chase...those chases really get my adrenaline pumping...always!! And the star wasn't all that egotistical this time around...shocking!! The very last line in the movie: "Welcome to IMF Mr. Secretary"....loved it. And then of course the sweet theme song plays!! It's been a favorite soundtrack of mine for decades!! If you're liking a good action flick, it's worth seeing. At least when it comes out in DVD. Oh, and speaking of DVD, NCIS New Orleans [and the last season of NCIS] comes to store shelves on August 18th. Can't wait! At least for the New Orleans 1st season.
