A Postcard from Quill

Good morning!


We are just over half-way through the season, here at Fish in a Barrel Pond. Just two and a half more months of being on-call 24/7! It’s not like I have to stay awake, waiting for something to happen, but I have to be around just in case. You never know when there will be an emergency like someone running out of toilet paper or one of the kitchens getting ransacked by a marauding band of raccoons. Or someone having a heart attack. Yeah, two someones, each with a very different outcome. You’ll hear all about it after the season ends.

My point is that my work days are very long and entire days off are non-existent. I get pieces and parts of days to myself every once in a while – and nothing personal against you, my seven loyal readers – but there are places I’d rather be than in front of a computer. Like on the pond for example.



Those would be otters.


That would be a loon.


And that would be a toad that did not quite make it across the road. I don’t know why I threw that picture in here.

Anyhoo, Quill Gordon is still alive and well and he hopes you are, too.

  1. Otters!

    (Can’t talk, moving….)

    Great photos! I figured you were up to your armpits in work, but glad you checked in.

  3. A dead frog is definitely a better picture than one of a dead bird.

    Thank you for that.

    I understand. I don’t want to be in front of a computer right now, either. It’s just what I do while I’m waiting to do other things.

    Good to hear from you!

  4. I hear that amphibians make fetching refrigerator magnets…

  5. Good to know you’re alive and well. I don’t blame you for wanting to enjoy the beautiful scenery (Well, maybe not the frog.) and the wildlife though.

    Have a wonderful season, Quill. I’ll be waiting to read, when you’re ready to write.

    Glad to hear that you are alive and well, Quill. And as always, lovely pictures, though I could have done without the frog. 🙂

    I heart loons and otters!

    Dead frogs… not so much.

    Glad to see you’re still around, writing whimsical stories and posting lovely photos. I’ll come back & write additional silly comments more later. Happy fall, and be sure to do your civic duty and all that on Tuesday.
