I'm starting to mind that I'm getting older!

It's the middle of May already. 

 I must of missed . 


It never bothered me whenever I  turned a year older.  

I always thought of it as just another year, especially when

we didn't celebrate my birthday because it is the day after

Christmas.  I can't decide if Christmas sneaks up

on me faster each year or if it's my birthday.  

Either way I'm starting to mind getting older.

I'm terribly sad today!!!!

 I went to work this morning and Mildred was by the water that has collected in the big dip in the blacktop.  Kinda like a pond.   

I hurried to go and check on her eggs and they were GONE!

The nest was empty. 

The nest was covered, I saw a little shell, but nothing from 11 eggs, or one for that matter.
I checked in the nest and there were no eggs or little ducks.  It looks like the grounds people had dug up a sprinkler right by her.  My thinking is the grounds people took the eggs.
I actually checked in the dumpster and there wasn't any egg shells.

I hope who took them thinks they can eat them and gets some type of disease.   Like the quack or something.

After Mildred saw me she took another swim around and flew off.  It was like Mildred was waiting for me to come to work and see that she was okay.

I can't believe someone would take the eggs.  Mildred has been sitting there for over three weeks waiting to be a momma.

I was so excited for her to be a momma and couldn't wait for the eggs to hatch to see the ducklings like this. 

I hope they get their eyes pecked out by a bird or a duck or seagull flies over and shits on their head.  


Even made me cry!!!!!
