LOL, yes Maureen. Sometimes I just have to go for a long walk and talk to some ducks in a nearby pond. QUACK quack quack and yack yack yack, and even when they talk back I don't mind it a bit.
It's a good thing the ducks live close by.
We have named them Leonard(o), van Gogh, Rembrandt, Picasso, Renoir, Degas, Monet and Loudmouth.
They don't seem to object, except for Leonard's companion, the one I call Loudmouth.
