Located on the grounds of Second Baptist Church of Memphis, TN is a Labrynth, a prayer garden as such. Inside of the Labrynth, on the left side, is a bronze red tailed hawk on a cross. It, along with the Labrynth, is dedicated to Spence and Becky Wilson. Their gifts of love and support for not only Second Baptist Church but also for the community which is Memphis, Tennessee and out into the world, is a reminder of their dedication to the one who died on the cross.
By far, this is little duck is my favorite duck. Has always been. We used to have one in our first aviary that was pinioned and he would let me get within inches of him. There is nothing any harder to hit as a duck hunter, nothing any better tasting in the duck game bag, nor any duck as beautiful. In the field, the hen Greenwing Teal has an unmistakeable high-pitched quack. The drake only gives a soft little peep in reply. No further comment is necessary.
Perhaps my desire to scale a yonder outcropping is related to this damnedable fortress I attempt to assuade. And it ain’t over yet by golly! For the conquering of this confounded pain has left me with fewer picks to drive in it’s face, climbers shoes that are worn from the ware, climbers clasps that won’t fit in it’s crevace, fingers and hands exhausted from holding on. But I have no option but to climb. And neither do you.
