Spokane

I was struggling to find interesting things to say about this card, when the news yesterday came to my rescue.  Yes, even the news in the UK ran the story of the banker who watched a mother duck make a nest on a building ledge.  When the ducklings hatched and had to reach water, they tried to jump from the second floor ledge, the banker caught them then escorted them safely through the traffic to the river.

According to snopes.com this isn't the first time it's happened because it was first reported last year.  Presumably everyone was well prepared for the event this year, including having video cameras at the scene.
