Pool Duck

I woke this morning with a case of anxiety. I couldn’t shake the worry over the chemical levels in the pool. There seems to be the beginnings of a ring of mold near the tile surround at the top. I am sure that the pump is not circulating the water properly which then doesn’t keep […]

My Sunday …

Mine started out with a yogurt parfait – strawberries, pineapple, blueberries, banana, local honey, flax seed, and covered with granola and a side of graham cracker and peanut butter. I poured a k-cup and then I sat back with my breakfast treat and turned on the tv to see what George Stephanopoulos had to say […]

PTZ lights?

Do you know what today is? Yes, it’s Tuesday, that’s for sure. And yes, it’s June 1st. But did you know that it is also the Duck’s 31st birthday? Well, it is. And I am so happy to be able to say that. You know last year, on our 30th birthday, there was some actual […]

A socially distanced outside concert ….

This is what an outside socially distanced concert at the Duck looks like…well, the first show anyway, before the rains came.  We had some Doppler radar people amongst us watching and waiting for that dreaded red yellow band to cross the Galleria and it did, about fifteen minutes before Hayes was take the stage for […]

A little Van Halen

Another storm is coming through so RECORDS ON THE PATIO is happening on Saturday at 8pm this week. And expect a LOT of Van Halen in this set. When I was 12 in 1984, I heard this song ‘Jump’ on the radio and thought it was the coolest song ever. I mowed lawns with my […]
