nature for ya, huh?

I was talking to the shop guys downstairs at work and ask one how his weekend was. The answer:
Great time, got to go out on the lake with the grandkids. We saw a catfish eat a baby duck.
Maybe that was a bit TMI but I gotta love this dude. He's got land out south of town, loves fishing, loves life, loves nature. He said he felt bad for the mother duck but she still had a dozen or so little ducks, and she's got to know one will get lost from time to time, there are "monstrous catfish" in that lake. And apparently if you're a huge fish, sometimes you're in the mood to one-gulp a duckling in front of small children.

All I could think was, "I'm missing out, living downtown."
