Listmas 2019 Ducket-List

A fairly recent tradition here on the Duck’s blog is my yearly “duck-et list”.  This year’s list is going to contain a lot of similar topics to the one I wrote back in 2018, as many of my goals have either still not been met or are ongoing and will never truly be considered complete.  Plus, I moved recently, so I’ve got a rather serious life goal in mind, as well….

Listmas 2019: Amusement Parks I’ve Visited

Since most of my Listmas topics revolve around gaming, a topic largely reserved for Virtual Bastion, I sometimes have a bit of trouble thinking up Listmas topics to discuss here on my own, personal blog.  Scratching my head and thinking long and hard, I thought it might be fun to list the amusement parks I’ve visited over the years.  Because why not?  So, in no particular order… Continue reading Listmas 2019: Amusement Parks I’ve Visited

The Duck Dreams of Abandoned Mansions

The night of 10/21/19, I had another one of my more interesting dreams.  And if you’ve been following this blog for any length of time, then you know what that means.  I’m going to share this dream with you, my dear readers, because I’m weird, and that’s what I do.  As is often the case, the details have become rather fuzzy, but I’ll try to recount this odd dream as well as I can.

We Recently Moved…And Why

Since the age of 7, the Duck has been moving from place to place, never able to maintain a home for more than a few years before inevitably picking up and moving on once more (including long-ways across the United States…twice).  I was finally able to settle down in a single house for 12 years, and though it looked as if I might have finally found a home, there was cause to leave once again.  The Duck doesn’t really cover serious topics in my life too often…we all have our own problems, so who wants to hear about mine?  But on this occasion, I thought I’d update you, my dear readers, with what’s been going on. Continue reading We Recently Moved…And Why

The Duck Dreams of Things Lurking in the Shadows

The night of 8/25/19, I had a rather creepy dream that I wanted to write down before I forgot.  It has often been my intention to write a short story based off of some of my more interesting dreams, but as is often the case with a good number of my little side projects, it never quite happens.  Nevertheless, the least I can do is share it with all of you, my dear readers.

The Stressed Bank Teller

Like most people, my everyday chores and whatnot are pretty uneventful.  My last visit to the store to buy ice cream sundae supplies and chicken (items listed in order of importance) needs no elaboration, nor did anything exciting happen during my most recent trip to the post office.  (Actually, a lady cut in line.  It was weird.)  As I peruse my dull and tiresome memories revolving around life’s daily duties, one memory springs to mind of a rather humorous trek through the bank drive-through (is it called that…when you talk to the bank teller from your car…or is that just the term given to fast food restaurants?) over ten years ago. Continue reading The Stressed Bank Teller

Over a Month with Carmelita and Rosalina

G’day, everyone, just thought I’d write a little update concerning our two new kittens, Rosalina and Carmelita.  Both kittens had several vet visits recently to finish their vaccines and to take care of a little tapeworm issue, but other than that, they’ve been quite happy and healthy and have grown a bit, too!  Carmelita was a whopping six pounds when last we checked, while tiny Rosalina, probably the runt, was only three or four (I forget…or she gained a pound between vet appointments). Continue reading Over a Month with Carmelita and Rosalina

100 Theme Blog Challenge No. 25: Trouble Lurking

Today’s 100 theme topic is trouble lurking.  The first thing that comes to mind is the idea of danger that’s just beneath the surface.  A bout of paranoia that actually rings true.  I have felt this way in my own life, but rather than discuss something so unpleasant as life’s troubles, I’m going to talk about…alligators.
