Buck Duck:”Howdy. You sure can.”
Buck Duck:”Sometimes it gets so hot out here the hens are layin’ boiled eggs.”
Cheese:”What’s a day like in the day of a cowduck?”
Buck Duck:”There’s a lot that goes on out there on the range. Why don’t ya come on over for supper and I’ll tell ya. I can cook biscuits and gravy like nobody’s business. I live just over yonder.”
Buck Duck:”Just head on over when you’re done.”
Debbie Sue:”I’m Debbie Sue, but you can call me Deb.”
Cheese:”Okay, Deb. How would you describe what you are wearing?”
Debbie Sue:”This outfit? I’d call it Texas chic. I got it at Western Warehouse. I’m fixin’ to go out for some Tex-mex. Wanna come along?”
Cheese:”I’ll have to take a rain check. I’ve been invited to eat with the cowducks.”
Debbie Sue:”Careful, Buck Duck will talk your ear off. Hehe.”
Lone Quacker:”Well, howdy!”
Cheese:”Caught any criminals today?”
Lone Quacker:”Nah, just spotted one feller trying to tag a tree. I let him go with a warning.”
Lone Quacker:”He was trying to put a sticker on a tree. I believe it said ‘Duckshow’ on it.”
Cheese:”Oh (gets a little nervous). Well, I’ve got to go now. This has been Cheese with…uh…(whispers) Duckshow. I’ll see ya’ll later.”
Lone Quacker:”I’m not hard-a-hearing, ya know.”
Street Duck makes sure the coast is clear after leaving his mark.
Street Duck: “This looks like a nice place for a stick up.”

9. They don’t break.
8. They make bathtime so much fun.
7. They are not creepy like dolls.
6. They are low maintenance. They only need a little dusting off now and then.
5. They aren’t as obnoxious as snow globes.
4. They promote happiness. No one gets pissed off and throws a duck. Doesn’t happen.
3. What are the odds of a burglar breaking into your house and taking your stash of rubber ducks? (Not very likely).

1. Because they are for everybody at any age anywhere on the globe.

Can’t visit Seattle without a coffee buzz
Vegas Baby gets her gambling fix at a casino just outside Seattle.
Vegas Baby: “Big money! I’m feeling hot today!”
Seattle is one of a few cities that has a sightseeing tour called Ride the Ducks. This vehicle gives tours of the city on land and water! They give passengers noise makers that they call Wacky Quackers that look like beaks and make quacking sounds. “Free with every ride, the Wacky Quacker™ will grab locals’ attention and get the Duck rocking as you roll through the city streets.” It’s hilarious to see this coming down the street. I didn’t get a chance to ride it, but I went into the gift shop (which was full of rubber ducks)and took home many souveneirs.
On August 6, approximately 25,000 rubber ducks took the plunge into the East River and raced from the Brooklyn Bridge to South Street Seaport for the 2008 Duck Race! The race was a charity benefit for the Special Olympics. It was quite a spectacle watching all the ducks as they made a mad dash for the finish line. We adopted a few ducks for the race. Although our ducks did not finish first, we had a spectacular time rooting them on.
