Windowpane Wednesday: Blue Truck Stuck

I won’t complain about all the rain we’ve had recently. Certainly, there are those in other areas that have fared much worse from the weather over the past couple of weeks.

But, we’ve had a lot of rain.

Saturday morning, as Motor Man and I were leaving home to run some errands, my little group of mallards showed up for breakfast at the side door of our garage.  But, there were also Canada geese in our yard, and I try to avoid feeding them at all costs.  I do nothing to encourage them to hang around. Sadly, they need no encouragement.

I threw some corn to the ducks, jumped in the truck with Motor Man, and suggested that perhaps we could ‘head off’ the geese by driving between them and the garage.

Not the best idea I’ve ever had.

We were stuck (this isn’t a 4-wheel drive vehicle).

Have I mentioned lately how thankful I am that my Motor Man isn’t easily upset?

So we  drove my car to our shop to get our Tahoe, which IS 4-wheel drive, and waited til the next day when the weather had somewhat improved to pull the blue truck out of its spot.

And the geese still ended up eating most of the duck’s corn.
