Have I given up on this blog?
I have not.
Today I dragged Paul to Franklin Canyon Park, which is a very nice and sort of hidden park that's not far from our house. We went on a non-strenuous hike while he grumbled about nature. It was fun. We saw a large duck pond, with several very pretty ducks, and one turtle.
Then we went to the Chinese shop in North Hollywood and bought one of the whole, cooked ducks that they have hanging in a display case. We brought our duck home and ate a lot of it.
(Take that, Nature! Paul would say, if he thought of it.)
