Ducks in the Carport or Any Port In A Storm

Last Saturday, a mallard duck & 2 drakes decided to hang out in our carport. I assume they were taking a break from their Stow Lake gig in Golden Gate Park.
SF, CA, 4/23/11

Normally, that wouldn't be a problem. But, Donna had to go to work.

So, I cowboyed up and herded them lil doggies to safety...

I went back upstairs and watched them through the window. They putzed around for a few more minutes. Eventually, one of the drakes looked up with a sort of "Yeeeah. Ok. Let's fly... THIS WAY!" look and they all took off.

Godspeed, my web-footed friends. I hope you made it home ok.

The Sleestak Hunter Gallery presents: Pon Farr Monthly

I was also known as JedimasterElvis.
A long time ago, I spent waaay too much time in the forums of a website called Television Without Pity.

I participated in the 'Pixel Challenges'. You'd create a picture based on some TV-themed idea the moderators came up with. Most of the time, my TWoP screen-name was Sleestak Hunter.

I think the theme of this challenge was: "A TV character creates a magazine".

I picked a secondary Vulcan character from Star Trek Voyager* and, well, I think the results speak for themselves.

NOTE: The more you know about Star Trek and its various franchises, the funnier this will be. So, you may just want to bail now.

Just click on the pic for a better view.




* According to a forum commenter at the time, his name wasn't Taurik. Or I was confusing the name with a similar character he played on one of the other Trek shows. It doesn't really matter, though.
