Happy Birthday, Kev! Oompah Loompahs And A Nature Walk

Today, Mikro and I took Kevin out to lunch for his birthday. On our walk to the Diner, we saw signs of spring, like tree seed casings, new plant growth, a meadowlark, robins, and newly returned ducks on the Duck Pond. Mikro was fascinated by the ducks, who must be used to handouts, because they got out of the water, came up to us, and then waddled back down the hill for a swim when they figured out we weren't providing them with lunch...

After running all our errands, we came home and watched one of Kevin's favorite movies, Willie Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. This was a first for Mikro, and prompted this conversation:

Mikro- What are oompah loompahs?
Kev- Those little orange faced guys.
Mikro- Do they eat people?
Kev- No!
Mikro- Why not? (sounds annoyed).
