Duck, duck, sister, sister

For sisters Judy and Cathy Rogers, feeding the ducks at Frank G. Bonelli Regional Park in San Dimas is a way of life. For the past 3 1/2 years, they have shown up Monday through Friday to feed the ducks (and a goose named Luther). They spend close to $1,000 a month of their Social Security checks to do it. To make ends meet, the sisters, who had to retire early because of health reasons, live in an apartment together with few furnishings.

    So sweet. These ladies found a way to stay together and commune with nature. Wonderful job taking care of these birds. And they do it on almost no money. Imagine what all of us could do to support wildlife or stray animals. Nice reporting.

    I hardly think $1000.00 a month is hardly 'almost no money'.

    I have seen these ladies feed the birds in person. It truly is something to witness. If you ever get the chance to visit do it. They are there M-F around 4 or 4:30. The birds really do love them.
