Of God and Baby Ducks

Well, life in the slow lane has come to a grinding halt as spring turns slowly into summer. As you know, life in a big city moves at a certain pace and you have to keep up lest you get honked at, passed by, or run over. There is nothing worse than rushing to get to work or take the kids to school in time for the first bell and encountering the person who has no place to be any time soon. So, you keep up the pace running at break neck speed some days.

Out here on the edges of the country, just past the suburbs, we have different kind of traffic. One that cannot be rushed with the honk of a horn or even passed by with a change of a lane.

Nope, this spring I encountered an all new kind of traffic jam.

Our little corner of the lake is a breeding ground for wildlife. On a daily basis we have about 10 varieties of birds, several kinds of fish, and plenty of turtles. While the fish do not create traffic jams on the street. Believe it or not, the ducks, snakes and turtles do.
