Rough day yesterday... Got a nice email from
Smidge's family reminding me not to let the
malcontents wear me down.
“People are often unreasonable and
self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior
motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do
Give the world the best you have and it may never be
enough. Give your best anyway.

tubes over the next year. I have some little duck
notebooks with watermarked pages that I bought and
donated to the sanctuary a couple years ago. They're
still down on the sponsorship shelves because they don't
fit in the current tubes. I also found some duck
paratroopers and some other ducky goodies. Hmmm... this
could be fun!
