Early one Friday morning in June, Donnie the Pekin duck was preparing to fly south—via US Airways. Tucked inside a soft-sided pet carrier, we made our way through the airport, keeping our fingers crossed that Donnie would make it through check-in and security without any trouble.

In the last few months, Cleveland Park residents have been frantically posting about their beautiful blooming flowers being stolen from their yards and community garden plots.  One resident claims that over 50 of her peony blooms were stolen. This blossom burglary has been going on for quite some time now. Many residents have described a man carrying flowers—loose, unwrapped, and strikingly similar those stolen from the neighborhood.
