Vicki with Ducks

Vicki with Ducks

This is my daughter with ducks that used to regularly come around our home to mooch food. They were so friendly that it wasn't long before we had our favorites. At first there was only one who came around. We named that one "Duckums". But soon word got out and Duckums started bringing his friends along. They each had their own special personalities, so we gave them all names too. There was, "Duckums" and "Muckums", and "Pluckums" and a rather hot-tempered, violent duck who I named "F**kums". Then there was also--"Moe", "Larry" and "Curly". After years of coming by our place, most of the ducks fell off and stopped coming--that is, except for this one faithful duck who was "Muckums". He was the one duck who got picked on by the other ducks. He would also get picked on by the seagulls (who tried taking bread from the other ducks, and got their heads pecked on in return). Still, they always managed to get their greedy beaks on Muckums' bread. We always tried to give the beaten-down Muckums more since he was obviously having such a hard time. Despite that, the ducks and gulls would most often beat him to the quick, swallowing whole his portion of bread. Muckums was the patient, peace-loving type. He tended to avoid such unpleasant altercations and cat fights among his fellow ducks. On occasions though, we wondered why he didn't just "peck" the feathers right off the others when they'd push him around. Nonetheless, we could see that the peace-loving Muckums was such a faithful duck to us, and such a dear heart, that we really fell in love with him above all the others. Eventually, Muckums did start to fight back, instilling great fear among the other ducks and proving himself to be kingly and superior. As time and the seasons rolled by, it was Muckums alone who continued, through bad weather and good, to come to visit us at our patio door. At times he waited very patiently for us to open up the blinds to greet him. During our last days just before we moved, again, it was Muckums alone who continued to visit to us. Then, he seemed to know that something was changing...that we were leaving for good. That last day, he stayed at our patio for a long time, refusing to leave us. He peered with odd curiousity into our then, empty apartment. We decided to give Muckums a new name. We called him, "The Faithful One". I even entertained thoughts of finding a way to take him with us, but realized it was not possible. Sadly, we said goodbye to our friend Muckums, "The Faithful One", at our place in Virginia Beach, with it's large duck pond nearby--which we hope to this day, "The Faithful One" swims happily.

I have a photo of Muckums, "The Faithful One" which I'll dig out and post later.
