Some news

Just want to share some news before the post proper.

Finally got my hospital appointment through, for next Wednesday, 13th. Yea, crap date, but never mind, it could be lucky. If I’ve read the letter correctly, it seems another stent after all. 
And all being well, I should feel like a twenty year old after.  lol

Have to be there this Friday, for 8:30, for an admissions clinic, so I should have all the details of what’s going to happen then.

Ok, as Freddie once said, ‘the show must go on

An excited goose. A happy Canada Goose, to be exact.

And the reason for his excitement; a quick splash earlier.

A serious looking Mallard.

A male, flying in, to see if I had food, or just a camera.

And the last one for now,

an excited duck.

Hope your day is exciting too.


  1. Good luck, fingers and paws crossed here for you.

  2. A 20 year old! I wouldn't mind feeling like a 20 something again. You doing it the hard way, I'm looking for something in pill form! All joking aside, I do hope and wish the best for you. May the good Lord bless you with a speedy recovery.

  3. Thanks Adrian :)

    David, thank you :)

  4. ...good luck with your procedure--my grandpa was born on Friday the 13th, so I always considered it a good luck day! Love that last shot, the profile is very cool. Love the action in the splashfest, and you're right! That mallard looks seriously serious!

  5. Hmm not sure my post worked so I will do it again.. Great news, OMG how many pics will we get if your feeling 20 again;-). I can picture your face when you read it was a 13th, prob a bit like that mallards face me thinks

  6. love your pictures.. and I hope you will be feeling like 20 after your hospital visit!

  7. And me, good luck on Wednesday 13th. The pictures are really, really good.

  8. I have a dentist's appt. today, so I'm hoping more for calm than excitement ;)

    Love the photos! Excellent shots!
    Whatever the prognosis / procedure — I hope you're feeling better soon!

  9. Great shots Keith.
    Admissions clinic sessions were always guaranteed to make my blood pressure rocket.
    20 yr old eh. Does that mean you will be using 'texting speak' in your blog? lol.

  10. Thanks Kelly. Yea, I'm sure it'll be a good day :)

    Thanks Debbie. Yea, I did smile a bit, and mumble something, when I read the date lol

  13. Lots of energy in the photos today, Keith great stuff!

    Sending you lots of luck for the 13th, my Dad was born on Friday 13th so to me it is a special day! I hope it will be a special day for you too by returning you to much better health, I will be thinking of you.

  14. Hi Keith...that is fabolous news. I cannot tell you enough how happy I am for you !!

    I never think of Mallards looking serious, they always look like they are smiling to me!!

    EXCELLENT shots today...love the action-Thanks so much for doing this for US to enjoy!!!

  19. Keith - I'm just catching up after being away for a few days!! So I'm delighted to hear that you're finally getting that stent!! You must be so relieved and, yes, you'll no doubt be bouncing around like a new born lamb afterwards :D :D

  20. Hope you're up and about like a spring chicken soon, best wishes for Friday/Wednesday :-)

  21. Very interesting moments of the life the ducks.

  22. Well, Keith, I have always found the 13th to be lucky, so I will try to push my good luck your way. ;-) I'll be thinking of you.

  23. Thank you Dixxe. Like you say, it will be like history, this will be the third time for one, and second time for the other. Hope they’re the last :)

    Thanks Tricia. Catching up is something I have to do; I’ve got so far behind. Lol
    Hope you had a good time.

    Thanks Paul :)

    Kozma, thank you :)
