April 5

Alabaman with duck

On the recent Florida-to-Mason road trip, we stopped at the visitors' center as we entered Alabama. The first Alabaman we met was standing there holding a duck.

"What's with the duck?" we asked.

Apparently the duck had found its way to the visitors' center and someone who worked there offered to find it a home, so this nice guy caught it and was hanging onto it for her.

I'd never been to Alabama before--this was a nice introduction.
