    Six Ducklings Saved
    DNR rescues six ducklings from storm drain in most heartwarming story of the day
    On Saturday night, passengers taking the light rail downtown happened upon a strange sight: A mama duck circling the storm drain in distress.
    A short investigation explained why: her six ducklings had fallen between the cracks and were trapped underground.
    Some compassionate passerby called the police, who referred the case to the Department of Natural Resources.
    The DNR not only retrieved the ducklings, but left a note to reassure all the concerned witnesses who had seen the poor mother and worried if the family would be reunited.

    "The six ducklings trapped in the sewer were rescued!!" the sign reads.

    Jeers to death. I lost my mother to cancer yesterday. She beat lung cancer in 1998, but liver cancer at 88 years of age…Cheers to her long, fruitful Life, her youthful exuberance, her sense of humor and the fact that she never, ever gave up on me!


    Cheers to the furry, scaly, shelled and fine-feathered friends, who watch over us while we sleep!
