We have been thrilled by the arrival of two most adorable ducklings: Opp and Boaz. Yes, those are not your plain vanilla names but there is a logical, New England-esque explanation: my niece was visiting the week they were both hatched and she made me promise to name any and all ducklings after towns in her home state of Alabama. As you know, those of us who live in New England keep our promises, hence the names of Opp and Boaz.
Boaz walks in the upright fashion modeled oh so well by Maurice and Pickles so one of those boys is clearly her father. Opp, on the other hand/webbed foot, walks with a classy forward bend copied from his father Oliver. There are few things in life cuter than baby ducks so I hope you will come by to see them soon.
