Double dipping

I know I'm double-dipping, but Jilda worked today and I was charged with getting supper. Calling the local Asian restaurant, I ordered the meal we often have on Thursdays.

As I started telling the woman what I wanted to order, she recognized my voice. She said in broken English – I know you. She then recited what we always order. Before hanging up, she said "B redy in 15 minute."

It was raining when I pulled out of my driveway and a light fog was beginning to creep up from low places by the road.

I decided to swing by the lake to see how it looked in the muted light. It wasn't as brilliant as it was a few days ago, but it was still pretty darn good.

The duck volunteered to give me a guided tour, but I told her I had to pick up supper. She squawked as she swam off. I interpreted that to mean, "Suit yourself but I'm going to feast on the beauty of these autumn leaves."


  1. As soon as they see our number calling in they know what we are going to order too.

  2. A double treat for you. what with a site for the eyes and treat for the tummy too. I don't get take out very often at all. It would be a treat here for sure. Hope have a super Saturday!

  3. The duck does not look happy. I think you insulted her.

  4. I think it is good when folks get to know you. It must give you a big smile..
    Great shot, nice catch of the duck too!

  5. Kinda nice when they recognise your voice and know what you want, a beautiful shot of the sad looking duck
