The duck rescuer

Lost post 3/13/10
Have you ever rescued ducks?

Yesterday I was scrapbooking something caught my eye. Three young men about 14/15 came down from the eastward pond and they were taking plastic dogie poo bags and just throwing them everywhere. Then they went to the middle pond in front of our apartment. One young boy started skipping rocks or so I thought at first. Every rock came close to hitting a duck that was in the pond. Well that was it I was on my feet and out to the balcony where I watched the boy throw a few more rocks. The fifth rock was large and very scary so I decided it was time to say something since his violent behavior was escalating. I asked him what he was doing and he politely ignored me so I asked him again in a voice that the entire apartment complex could hear. The kid responded back that he was throwing rocks at the ducks! He admitted what he was doing. ARRRGGGGGGGGGGGGG!

He quickly moved on (without me asking him to stop) with his hockey wearing mask friend and co-hort and headed up towards the third and fourth upper ponds. So I turned around called the apartment complex and after a short ride with maintenance I identified the kids and they were thrown off the property. One of the boys said he lived at the complex and he wasn't allowed to come back until management could speak with his parents. Why do kids feel compelled to destruct the very community and things that are beautiful?

Where Do I begin again? I. Have. No. Ideal. I'm going to hit the ground running here and just say the past few years has held a great amount of change for my husband and I. We have lived new places made new friends and started over again. We are movers and shakers I guess. Not really just doing what we can to make life feel comfortable as possible. so lets get off and running, I haven't had a scrap space for almost a year, its been well over a year since I've used a cricut but not the gypsy. The cards most fast and quick and not picture worthy. As some things stay the same I'm still into clean lines its still a timeless favorite. So much of what you will see is rockin it old school or cute and quick and a few Pintrest inspirations. I'm a girl on the run so more quick than anything. For the first time in three years I plan not to travel for a few months and that makes crafting, blogging, and everything else less complicated and room for relaxation and fun. Enjoy the…


Feeling fine as frog hair! Now to get Miss Pumpkin on the mend, who has been hair ball hacking for five days. My poor girl! We'll I'm off to photograph some cards. I hope you all are well!


Ahh so I know no updates of late. A most lazy poster am I. I ve been not liking the current upload system for my pictures so that why I don't post often. Life is ok. We are still in Fort Worth. Traffic boggles my imagination daily I spend about an hour on the road everyday and its only 6 miles to hubby's work and back. Bright lights, big city, crappy traffic.

Do we like it? It's not the worst place we have lived. You'll find original Texans are friendly, problem is not many are around. Of course the possibility could be maybe I'm not that likable. I doubt I'll ever be able to answer that.

We have never bought a house for many reasons the main being ours in B.G. never sold. It sits after price reductions and after every real estate analysis you could think of. 30k plus under market value and yes I've had a recent estimate. The other is taxes. Taxes are about 6000 on a .25 acre lot here . so even if you buy a little house you have a horrid bill. In Arlington …
