The video below is nothing special; just a duck following a dude. Amusing.
I'm posting it because it stirs up deeper meaning for me.
The only pet I've had in my life that was just mine was a duck. Used to follow me around too.
Second grade, I won a contest that allowed me to take home one of the little fellows that we hatched as a classroom project.
Found out after the fact that parents would define that as "losing" a contest, but oh well.
I liked my duck for the short time I had him (he was a victim of our house burning down. There are some good stories that go with that - remind me to tell you them sometime.)
So, for the memories, here is a clip of a man and his duck.
Just my thoughts,
