There's nothing as cozy as being warm and snug in your home while the icy winds blow outside. Better yet is being in your pajamas sitting near the fire with a cup of hot cocoa with nothing else to do. One thing that can spoil this, however, is when there's something on the other side of the window, out in the cold and unprotected. What's even more frustrating is when you have tried to invite and coax it to provide shelter, but from either misunderstanding or fear, it refuses to do what is best for its own good. Such is the on-going saga with this columnist's ducks, introduced about a year ago in a column called, "Just Ducky." What's interesting is that this story parallels another one quite well for this time of the year.
