05-19-09 ugly duckling

Unlike Hans Christian Andersens’ ugly duckling that eventually transformed into a swan, I’m thinking there can’t be much hope for this pitiful looking creature.  I wonder about his wing.  Has it been damaged…it looks pretty sad and broken.

I hope it’s not hurt, because although he may not be much to look at he is God’s creature, AND he lives in the same pond as Van Gogh, our recently release pet turtle.  For all I know they’ve met and now are best of buds there in the pond at Chris Taylor Park.   afs
