Mordechai goes out

Mordechai, the Quimper Family Medicine genuine plastic skeleton, came out to dinner with us on Saturday and seemed to have a great time. She is wearing a sequinned top, though you can still see her ribs through it. Lots of people stopped by to get introduced….

Kathy Carr took this photograph, many thanks!

Coots always look a bit like wind up toys to me, different from the ducks. They move more jerkily. They look a little bit mechanical. I think the neurological wiring is more primitive than ducks, but look, it works and they’ve survived! I can’t argue with that!

I will keep trying to catch that up and dive motion….
