Face only a mother could love.

How about a cutie like this for a pet? I'm driving down Esplanade in Kenner the other day with my window rolled down and pulled up to a stop light. Off to my left, this guy and several of his compadres were waddling up from the canal to the cars. They were staring right at me and the other drivers. Apparently they must have a following that throws them crumbs. He was very surprised I didn't toss something out.

I have enjoyed your post today.

Thank you for visiting my blog and for commenting there. I appreciate that a lot.

I am also glad that you got to know a squirrel for a period of time. They are special.

I hope they don't get hit by a car! I've seen this type of duck in ponds near my house...so unusual, but beautiful in their own way.
