Wow... just wow!!!! Remind to pass on that group!!!!
Sharon, it's a well known fact (1) that most people drop their intelligence level at least 20 points when they log onto the internet, and another 40 points when they interact on Facebook(2). Some are discrete about this phenomenon, others are oblivious and prove it with every post they make. I log in from time to time, mainly to disprove the rumors of my demise(3). The best way to NOT have problems on Facebook is to make sure that a) there is no logic used in making the post and b) your post follows the image of a cute furry and large-eyed animal(4).

(2) Annals of the Factoid processing Review, June 1901 edition, Shlum, Frum et al: Intelligence degradation with future platforms.
(3) personal communication. Just because I am not present in the Facebook world, doesn't mean I'm dead.

After they hatch, call Animal Control not TWA. Animal Control (or equal) is a local agency (city or county). Tell them of the problem. They should be able to easily herd the family and take them to a safe location. And/or call the SPCA, they may also be able to help. If there is any hesitancy, tell them you have a cat and as a Baptist you fear for the lives of "all God's creatures". You been keeping the cat cooped up during the incubation but you can't keep it cooped up forever.
After they've "flown" the coop, go online or to Home Depot and get a plastic hawk and mount it in the backyard. Just for kicks, get one of those can-o'-air-horns and keep it handy if more ducks arrived next season.
Or, if you renounce your present religion, instead of the SPCA call the NRA.
Wow Charlie, this thread has an obscene amount of posts. You started a revolution!
I think we're witnessing a smart duck that observed how people adopt stray cats (feeding them, making sure they are safe), and decided that if it works for cats, surely it would work for a cute duck.
Hah! You missed the whole leaderboard episode. THAT spawned THIS.
Okay, good sir. Now you must elaborate. Leaderboard? Seems frivolous.
This is mild. You should have been here for the leaderboard thread (I deleted all of my crap).
This was born out of that trainwreck.
OBTW, still trying to get to ME - possibly summer. We had way too much going on here to think about it earlier.
Sounds like I should be glad I was absent for this period. Hey, I noticed that you don't have FB anymore Charlie. I looked back through an image you commented on and it looks like I was talking to myself.
Someone noticed "top posters" on the main page. A core group tried to break it. It started out as a "I wonder if we can get on it" and went out of control. The best part was when I woke up "under" Sharon, Mish, Leonore & Marija!
I went back in with a different email address -- I'll send you a request, though I'm hardly there. Glad to see in another post that Gabby is well.
