So I finished the book and emailed to my editor. Yay!
Then, wild ducks showed up in my backyard.
I guess they thought my pool was a lake!
The dogs went wild - barking at the back door. The ducks didn't care. They just swam.
Finally, Lonnie went outside and chased them off. They flew off and then we took the dogs out.
Unfortunately, they simply circuled the house and landed back in the yard. Apparently, the dogs didn't frighten them at all.
We had to rush the dogs back in the house to keep any blood from being spilled.
Now it seems they've gone for good!
That's excitement at the Whiddon household!
