Suzie's 365 photos day 202: matched pair

As soon as I saw the prompt for day 202 on Suzie's 365 photos for today I knew what I was going to do.

Soon after we married, my dad gave us two ducks. He had heard a story that said that if the two ducks were facing each other then there was harmony between the couple. If one was upset with the other they should turn their duck round to face away from the other one ... the idea being that the other person would see this and realise that the other was upset. When harmony is restored the ducks could face each other again.

The only trouble is that now John's vision is so poor that he wouldn't notice if I turned my duck round or not - lol! However, most of the time there is harmony, so no problem!

The ducks sit on a shelf in the bathroom:


  1. aww thats lovely. What a nice gift and idea....i am still thinking what do for today.

  2. That is a lovely story. What an unusual gift and perfect for today.

  3. The story of the ducks is so beautiful. I love the idea.
    We have a sign on our bedroom door that says " Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight !" LOL

  4. Lovely story Hazel and if you read my blog I need to go back and add what Anne has written above!!!

  5. I haiven't heard that before Hazel, but like your ducks and the photo of them too.

  6. A lovely story Hazel and lovely ducks.

  7. Hello dear Hazel!
    "Hazel - great!" - Exactly what I wanted to write today, I saw your message to Picxie.
    Thanks to you I now understand the topic.
    To all - do you know why there must be "matched pair"?
    The same two things - in the bedroom, the house - two identical lamps, vases, pillows, figurines ... - They bring Love!

  8. Great idea, very wise. Love Borqna's comment too xxx
