We were all full of suggestions and advice, some bad, some good, some revolved around eating the eggs, raising the ducks for food and contacting Ducks Unlimited for advice. In our conversations our conversation drifted to how different religions would give advice and the ideas of Buddha, and Karma came up and we speculated about what would happen.
As the game went on, whenever we had a bad shot or a bad hole we attributed the event to the bad Karma that we said had engulfed us for talking about eating the soon to be born ducklings. At the 16th hole Steve hit a very high shot and hit a bird, knocking it from the sky. The bird although it was knocked down and a bit stunned, soon flew away, although Steve thought he had injured or killed the bird.
My comment to Steve was that if he had killed the bird, he had 11 others that were soon to be hatched and he was 10 up on the count. I hope to find out what Steve and his wife will do with the eggs, I suspect they will allow them to hatch and then he will have to figure out how to raise them, so I expect these stories to occupy our games for the next few weeks. At least the duck and bird story took my mind off of politics and the Canucks, for a while
