This was my cousin, Jennifer.

The next day:
|I call him "Big Bill."|
|I call him "Jack Webb."|
|He is not an albatross, but it's good luck to photograph him.|
|It's super-good luck to be photographed with a pelican, whose beak can hold more than his belican.|
It's always good luck to hang out with my friend, Tammy.

Later that evening, my old friend (John) and his wife (Kim) made us a delicious Thai dinner. Yessir, we really Thaied one on. They live on a pond and have ducks who knock at their back door. This was one night they had Ducks knocking on their front door, too. John and Kim, it was a pleasure and WHY OH WHY didn't I take your pictures? The conversation was too interesting and I forgot. I blame you.
Here's a thought about anxiety. If you don't full-time, you might think there's nothing to be anxious about. But, some ducks are naturally anxiety-prone and will find things to worry about even when waters are calm and bugs are plentiful. John showed me a yoga posture that helps with anxiety by forcing deep, diaphragmatic breathing. It started helping immediately. Yay! Ducks don't like to paddle constantly. I found this page that describes it, but if you've just ordered your senior coffee in McDonald's and they forgot your cream, easing the stress with the crocodile pose is going to get you more attention than you paid for. Just notice how your breath flows, and breathe deeply wherever you are. You'll unclench faster than you can say Dr. Young's Ideal Rectal Dilators.
We tried to leave Lake City yesterday, but our caliper stuck and we didn't make it to the city limits. We used Lamb's Automotive, and we liked them a lot. Took the Big Duck in this morning for more maintenance we've been putting off. While we're here, you know.
It is our earnest and honest intention to leave Florida on Thursday.
