Duck Duck…

My dad had a stuffed mallard duck that was one of his PRIZE possessions from one of his hunting exposition.  When I was little I thought it was so conveniently put on the coffee table for me to run my little hands through the feathers… the opposite direction of how you’re suppose to pet a duck, and boy would my dad get mad!!! 

I use to despise that duck every time I saw it because it would remind me of getting in trouble.  After I lost my dad, this duck has become a treasure of mine that makes me smile when I see it. 

A duck stays calm and cool above the water – only to be paddling like hell underneath.  My WISH is to remain like a duck when under pressure, out of luck or just in need of some comfort. 

Sparkle and Spur and never quit paddling

About dustiebill

Born, raised and still trying to live life as an Oklahoma cowgirl. I have a travel loving soul and I LOVE photography. My blog has started out as a place for me to post my 365 photo-a-day challenge....I have now found a love for fine art. Specifically Horse or Western Inspired Photography. I love my husband, kids, DIY projects, horses, wine, lightening, post-it notes, colored sharpie markers, trolling garage sales, baseball, cooking, shopping, working outside in the garden and living a simple country life. If you own a piece of our work you own more than just a piece of art. Thank you for supporting cowgirls. Sparkle and Spur Dustie Bill
