Thattamma C. G Menon

Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

It snowed last night and it continues to as I write, but the ducks still need to be fed and watered.

Willow Manor In The Winter

The duck farthest back in the photo above is the one that got attacked by a dog earlier this year. A husky tried to pull her through the fence and dislocated her leg. We pushed the leg back in her socket and gave her months of therapy and she is hard to discern from her sisters most of the time.

You can read about it here.

We patch up a broken duck at Willow Manor

Some of my readers, particularly those from India like to see a little snow. I recorded while I watered them.

Willow Manor Ducks Are Spoiled Rotten

I know I am bouncing subjects, but one wonders at times of God puts little things like duck physical therapy in our lives for a reason.

I cannot begin to understand all the people God puts in our path, so it stands to reason that God puts orchestrates a fair bit.

One notable person God put in my path is Mrs. Thattamma C. G Menon from . She is Chicken Soup For The Soul.

Throughout the month of December, Thattamma has encouraged me like a mother. She is so sweet that I am mush every morning when she leaves me a comment.

I appreciate you, Thattamma.

        I feel a bit bad saying this after seeing yours, but we had roast duck for our Christmas dinner. It was truly delicious.

        1. Benjamin says:

          No need. I am an urban farmer. I have dressed out just about everything, ducks included.

  1. Jeff says:

    Happy New Year, brother! I wish you peace and blessing. Also, I will follow Thattamma’s blog. I like what I see there, so far.

      I had to chase two out of the shed today. They wanted to stay in bed because of the cold. They will get thirsty and die if I leave them there.

      I like the snow though! โ„โ„โ„โ„โ„โ„

    Thattamma is what I love about blogging. Finding an international viewership not just for the blog but people that speak from the heart. Beautiful.

      1. BBYCGN says:

        I just followed you on Quora. But how did you get so many follows? Cโ€™mon, give it up. Inquiring minds wanna know.

        1. Benjamin says:

          Do you need follows on Quora? Shamelessly follow folks with few followers and make meaningful comments on highly followed Quorans.

          1. BBYCGN says:

            No, I donโ€™t need โ€˜em. But makes it fun. But thatโ€™s pretty shameless! (LOL). ๐Ÿฅณ

          2. BBYCGN says:

            Just kidding. Iโ€™m totally gonna do what you said!

          3. BBYCGN says:

            Everyone is requesting my answer to their questions and I try to satisfy a few of them, but canโ€™t get to all their lameโ€ฆ I mean inโ€™eresting questions.

            I watched Judge Judy the other day. It gave me nightmares.

          5. Benjamin says:

            I cannot remember the last time I watched TV. ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿ”ฅ

          6. BBYCGN says:

            I only watch TV when I am not feeling well. Otherwise I am doing a thousand things at one time.

            Ohhhhh, yeah. Thatโ€™s right. I almost forgot about that!

          10. BBYCGN says:

            Oh, I canโ€™t forget the corn nuts. One of my favorite snacks!

          11. Benjamin says:

            I am a little low on them . I like to make them from white corn seco

          12. BBYCGN says:

            I like white popcorn better than yellow popcorn since it is crunchier. Yellow is fluffier.

            Avoiding ๐Ÿฟ means neither are needed as often. ๐Ÿฆท ๐Ÿฆท๐Ÿฆท๐Ÿฆท๐Ÿฆท๐Ÿฆท๐Ÿฆท๐Ÿฆท

          14. Benjamin says:

            I wrote one quality post and it took off. That helped a lot.

          15. BBYCGN says:

            Where do you put your posts (on your own profile site, or someone elseโ€™s)?

          16. BBYCGN says:

            I shouldnโ€™t have deleted my Reddit site! Regret ๐Ÿ˜ญ

          17. Benjamin says:

            You can always make a new one, but they are a rowdy and hateful crowd. You need thick skin.

          18. BBYCGN says:

            I wish I had thicker skin. I usually can say the correct thing to get them off my back, but I am still sensitive. But only a handful of hateful comments bother me. The rest are just too lame to get upset about.

          19. Benjamin says:

            That makes sense. If you ever need humble pie, I believe Reddit is more than capable of dishing it out. ๐Ÿฅง

          20. BBYCGN says:

            Iโ€™ve had more than my fair share. Iโ€™m actually a shy person. Definitely an introvert.

          21. BBYCGN says:

            So many make hateful comments but these same comments, themselves, lack insight and awareness so itโ€™s hard to take them personally. Itโ€™s almost as if some of these people are just trying to pick fights cuz they have too much time on their hands but they have no idea what theyโ€™re even talking about.

          22. Benjamin says:

            I think a lot of hecklers do not have content of their own. When you create content, you tend to respect the content of others. ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿ”ฅ

          1. BBYCGN says:

            I will take the secret to my grave (or at least hold it โ€œtill dinner time).

    1. Benjamin says:

      Haha! Got your attention with likes! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค ๐Ÿ”ฅ

          1. BBYCGN says:

            Good, really. But, I hurt my neck. I donโ€™t know how, though. Maybe putting together too many candy cane puzzles. ๐Ÿ˜–

          2. Benjamin says:

            You have to stretch prior to candy cane puzzling ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

          3. BBYCGN says:

            Oh, yeaaah. Totally forgot! Iโ€™m still tending to my neck. Ouch.

          4. Benjamin says:

            That is amusing to me. It is like stretching before eating. ๐Ÿค ๐Ÿ”ฅ

          5. Benjamin says:

            Well, I will start stretching before stretching to be a good example!

          6. BBYCGN says:

            Hey, if I can help anyone else not get a strained neck, Iโ€™ve done my job.
