Ummmmm.....

Does anybody else notice anything kinda sorta, umm, well a little bit....you know, just a wee bit different with one of these ducks?




I noticed them today during a morning 30 miler after pimping my ride for the holiday...




Spending a few minutes paying respect to some old veterans...




....and checking out the action down at the beach...

womens...


mens...


mixed...



I can also report that two of the six cygnets hatched to my neighbors, the Swans, have survived their first five weeks on the river...

The ducks all looked the same to me...

I've been thinking this for a while, whenever I see a two-flag setup somewhere, but wouldn't it be neat to have one be the US Flag, and the other be your State Flag? Or, if you live along the Lewis & Clark Expedition route, an old style US Flag (15 bars and 15 stars) from that period, which is also the flag that Francis Scott Key saw in the War of 1812, when he penned our National Anthem.

Yes. The two in the lower left part of the pic have longer necks that most of the others.

I think one of 'em may be juicing. Report him to the USADA before it gets out of hand.
