Must Be A Clampett Duck

Just when I thought I had the mystery of the quacky duck solved, it turned out to be a no go. I have no idea where Molly’s new duck came from, but if you are into duck tales, you should pay a visit to Karla on theclampettsblog (if you aren’t already a regular visitor). She tells great ones – not to mention tales of chickens, geese, turkeys and other little critters that tend to visit her and her husband’s off the grid acreage.

I did sort out our Visa issues. After two days of pulling my hair out, I landed a live one at our bank – my new hero at the reception counter. She was able to call Visa (with me standing there) and ascertain that someone had tried to book a flight to the Middle East using my card. The Visa people weren’t buying that one, so they blocked not only my card, but Dan’s as well. For whatever reason, they didn’t run that past us, so I was freaking out trying to find out who and why someone had control of our Visa account. Someone who obviously was not us! Anyway, we are all good now. I hope. πŸ™„

Meanwhile, I haven’t had a chance to mention that we had a fun family supper on Sunday night with granddaughters Genie and Brook – along with their other halves and Brooks little half (and her dog Kingsley, who I suspected of being the source of the mystery duck). Anyway, we had barbecued steak, shrimp, corn on the cob, Caesar salad, and fried mushrooms. For desert, I made an almost homemade apple pie. (I cheated and used store bought frozen crust. No one needs to know that Grandma hasn’t made an actual pie crust for decades.)

Genie and Alec – Genie is really happy to be home. ☺️
Brook, Alaska, & Kale. They were pretty happy too! Especially Alaska Rose – I don’t think that baby is ever unhappy. πŸ’—

That’s about it for today. I am almost back on track today. I have my meditation, walking, and dancing done. I just have to get busy around here doing some more yard cleanup and making a small pot of soup for supper, plus getting my weights done.

Take care and have a great day! πŸ’žπŸŒž

  1. You are busy! I am glad that the bank shut your cards down, some people are evil! Identity theft is so out of control these days. I rip my name and address off of the snail mail each day, you just never know today. The pie looks delicious, and a grilled steak sounds great! That duck is very weird looking, better keep an eye on it, it could be an alien! πŸ˜‚

  2. Thank you, John! Yes I am glad they did – I just can’t imagine why they did not contact us. I am sure they have our contact info. Supper was great and we enjoyed the company! That duck is looking a bit rough since Molly got hold of it.

  3. My male duck who looks suspiciously like the above picture, by the way, is safe and sound so he is not your surprise duck! Thanks for the plug too! And I like your menu. Wish I had been there! But I can’t get into Canada until October!!!

  4. Once my account was frozen after I got to the front of a long WalMart line. I had just enough cash on hand but now I was out of money too. I had been buying so much stuff during my son’s move that I triggered an algorithm. I was furious on the phone with the credit card company. The guy said he would loosen the controls on my account but then I had second thoughts about loosening fraud control protocols either!

  5. No, no plans to enter Canada in October. I was referring to all the rigamarole one has to go thru to get INTO Canada at the moment. I read, though, that in October, Canada is dropping all their COVID requirements. Good riddance to COVID!

  6. True. I have friends and family that still have family in Canada. Traveling there makes it very difficult with all the rules and regulations. It should be easier for everyone starting in October. Will life after COVID ever be the same???

  7. I don’t know Karla. Covid pushed health services in Saskatchewan right over the edge. I don’t know if it will ever recover enough to handle another wave of critically (or seriously) ill patients – especially with the lifestyle here. People are strangely proud of being overweight, sedentary, and having a medicine cabinet full of drugs by the time they are 50. And of course being in doctor’s office, ER, and hospital on a regular basis. It’s bizarre how unhealthy it is here even without a pandemic. Physically and mentally.


  8. The wait time for our ER’s have been running 24 to 48 hours. I would lose it. I don’t hospital well at the best of times. Had a horrid stress induced asthma attack going into the hospital just to visit my father in law one time. Embarrassing or what? 🀦


  9. I have a friend whose dog has a duck just like Molly’s duck it would be great to know where Molly’s came from. I love critters and love Karla’s blog. I enjoyed your beautiful family photos. The food sounds yummy. Sure happy the Visa situation was worked out and all is well now.
