Collaboration With Family; an unusual solution

Hello! Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire Here!

Sometimes, life’s little challenges are what make great memories. Take for instance my duck’s inability to have a morning bath.

What a setback this is.

Now someone will have to break the ice and manually bring buckets of fresh water to these parched pluckers.

With a collaboration of all here at Willow Manor, we were able to devise a method of watering the makers of protein ovoids while mostly staying inside.

This minute long clip will serve to demonstrate our makeshift ingenuity.

In other news,

While I have an amazing outdoor firepit and a whole story began around the idea, I have no proper fireplace inside.

I was delighted that my Beloved picked up a Woodwick Candle. They are really nifty in that they crackle as they burn, making a mini Campfire sound. Thanks, Beloved!

She also pulled out the stops with some Lime Cilantro Hoisin Sauce.

Now, I will be honest, I have no clue what a hoisin is but it was really good on the tilapia she prepared!

These kind little gestures are appreciated here at Willow Manor Urban Garden as things in a prison can be a little unfriendly.

Family is where it is at! I am so appreciative of all the fun things we do together and the memories we make.

    Very clever way to water the ducks and stay warm. I never heard of Woodwick Candles.

          Ha ha! Social disorders indeed over here as well, but not my family and freinds. Enjoy the moisture, we need it here!

    I love this term it is a very creative description. I wish I’d thought of it first. Oh well i can’t be ahead of the curve every time! 😲🤔🤣
