Birds of a Feather

THE SMALL BOY AT SONOMA Plaza came running up to the ducks.

Great, I snarled to myself. Just what we need — another damn kid chasing the local waterfowl. Why can’t they leave the birds in peace?

As I considered this, he turned from the flock and ran to an old woman in a wheelchair. “Would you like to feed the ducks?” he asked with youthful enthusiasm, offering her two slices of rye bread.

Some days, crow doesn’t taste half-bad.

    Don’t rush to judgement until you have the facts.

    Of course, if you had your heart set on being a curmudgeon, you always could have dwelt on the claim that bread is bad for ducks.

    Speaking of ducks… here is a classic example of solidarity.

      The thought did occur … but fortunately, it also passed. 😉
