If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.

Unless it belongs to an Airforumer....

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

Pictures or it didn't happen.

Seriously though, sounds like quite an adventure. You should take up falconry and install a roost and skylight in the trailer so you can send your falcon off on missions. Frosty will stay behind and act as security. Honestly, if I was breaking into a trailer and heard quacking, I would be weirded out enough to just leave. Who knows what other animals a trailer duck owner might have?

Thank you all for your kind comments.

I don't know how good they are, but I'll get some photos up as soon as I can...... I hate the first few days after returning from vacation---there is just too much to do!!

i wonder if there is a good country music song in this adventure?
hope i one day have 1/2 your writing skills

Remember its not the destination, but rather the journey.... its what's in the middle that matters the most!

Too funny. The story itself was great, the overwhelming response you got after wanting to delete it is priceless. Bringing my wife in now to read it.

A just sounds "Daffy". (ok, nice)

And I am so glad you were quick with the response to the lady that simply assumed you were being cruel. No more tours for her!

This has been my favorite thread ever! A close family member of mine once rescued a Canadian goose that couldn't walk too! She nursed Wacky back to health and he even slept in the house and wore a duck diaper! Ok, your not suppose to keep these guys as pets. He wasn't really a pet, but he did have his own cowboy outfit. Anyway, he kept flying back down the hill to the lake and then we would find him barely alive fighting for his life days later. After a while and after a few tears, he found a nice home at a goose rescue with a bunch of feathered buddies. Until Wacky, I never thought a big bird like that could be so affectionate and loving! Now, I shudder every time I see those hunting targets at Gander Mountain.
I loved reading about Frosty and I am so glad he got to re-coop in style!
