It is good luck, to see Muskrat and Duck

"The muskrat is really a large, semi-aquatic vole, not related to the beaver as is sometimes supposed. It weighs an average of 1.5 kg and measures up to about 62 cm including the tail. Despite its name it is not a rat, but it is a rodent, and together with the musky discharge emitted from its anal glands, it is easy to see where the common name comes from."

St. Alban's Bay. Open water was inviting for a few local residents. If they go under, it is voluntarily.

A smile is just a frown

"Sven was going for his morning walk one day when he
walked past Ole's house and saw a sign that said
"Boat For Sale." This confused Sven because he knew
that Ole didn't own a boat, so he finally decided to go
in and ask Ole about it.

"Hey Ole," said Sven, "I noticed da sign in your yard
dat says 'Boat For Sale,' but ya don't even have a boat.
All ya have is your old John Deere tractor and

Ole replied, "Yup, and they're boat for sale."

Wyer/Pearce House

Set on a hill overlooking a 5-road intersection which , even redesigned, is a source of hesitation and automotive anarchy.
The  1870s Victorian House is stunning and deserves more space, but then what kind of space do the painted ladies of Crocus Hill Summit area in St. Paul have?  Not much. Fortunately this Victorian  is painted white.
