Ducklings climb Everest

July 21, 2021 • 1:00 pm

Many is the hour I’ve spent at Botany Pond trying, through force of will alone, to get little ducklings to jump up on the bank from the water. This is why I asked for two duck ramps to be constructed. Fortunately, all the little ones make it in this video.

There’s a hiatus in writing as there’s not much to say, and I’m not going to write filler. Stay tuned.

p.s. This duck video is NOT filler!

  1. Wow, like watching a suspense movie. Like worrying whether Jimmy Stewart would make his way up the bell-tower stairs in Vertigo.

    1. Also, the most riveting open-air stairs sequence since The Odessa Steps in Sergei Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin.

      1. I have to know, how did you get any lawyering done with all the movies you’ve absorbed? Sheesh, I’m thinking you’re a manic didactic slacker. That’s a compliment, since that’s what Raoul Duke would say from his Sport’s Desk. I have no way to know this, I just know it’s true. 🙂

        1. What can I say, Mark? It’s always been my goal to push dilettantism to a whole new level. 🙂

  2. Surely “Cenotaph Corner”, or “Flying Buttress Direct”
