I know You're Gonna Love This One....

It has been a very Blessed Day!

Merry Christmas to each of you............


As the title goes.....I know you're all gonna love this one!  This post...this story, is about a Duck!



I'm sure you all have read many times about our grandson, Tucker.....being the hunter in the family....

He usually hunts for things like deer, hogs and sometimes an armadillo or racoon.  Never has he hunted or killed a DUCK!

Until yesterday!

I was busy all day around the house, getting prepared for an evening with the kids....I was singing Christmas songs, getting dressed and just thinking about our family Christmas get-together.

I had just finished blow-drying my hair, when I hear Tori say....."Shug, there is a duck in your house."
I had no clue as to what she was talking about.....
All afternoon, it was just Tori and myself here at home...we had been working on some of the games that we all were going to be playing that evening....

OK......I come out of the bathroom and head straight toward the kitchen, only to find a duck....a dead duck....right there on my breakfast table.  
Not only was it on my table....but it was spread out across my new cloth placemats, my beautiful snowman dishes, my red sparkle napkins and my silver napkin rings.....

Seems that Tucker had been duck hunting with his cousins and when he was done, he had them drop him off here at Shug's........He had shot his very first duck and he was beaming from ear to ear....Tucker was SO PROUD of his kill......

My response???   "Tucker, what are you doing?"
His response:  "Shug, I thought you would proud of my duck."
My response:  "Oh sweetie....I am so proud of you....this is wonderful....You have killed your very first duck."

(In the back of my mind, I am thinking....."AND IT IS DEAD...AND IT IS SPREAD OUT ALL ACROSS MY BEAUTIFUL PLACE SETTINGS!")

What else could a good grandmother do at this point, but give him a big ol' hug and a bigger smile.....let him know just how proud of him I was........

I thought you all might find this quiet funny!

I sure wish there had been a camera on my face!
It would have been a great sight for You-tube or for
America's funniest Home videos.....

Have a good evening y'all....
See ya tomorrow!
Shug

Your response to Tucker is so precious. Years down the road he will remember that and also realize that it could have been much different. Oh the love you have shown.
