Christmas at the Duck Farm

Quite a variety of ducks migrated to the Duck Farm in December 2007. The museum of duckological artifacts grows by leaps and bounds.
hmmmmm.... is leaps and bounds correct? Wouldn't that be the way a frog exhibit expands?
How does a duck menagerie increase?
Ducks waddle, dive, fly, paddle, quack, and ................ that's it ..... soar ..... they soar!!!!
The Museum of Duckological Artifacts soars to new heights.
Choosing a favorite is impossible.
There is one that particularly attracts my attention. The blue book titled "The Little Duck Who Loved the Rain" by Peter Mabie. Once, this book was part of the Baldwin County Library in Milledgeville, Georgia. Milledgeville is the home of the State Mental Institution, a place where being "quackers" is the norm. One thing I wonder is who really wrote the book. They might as well say "anonomous" as Peter Mabie. Maybe Peter or Joe or Floyd or possibly even Sally.
But definitely:
Happy New Year!
Quack, Quack!

Looks like you made out like a bandit, Rod! Say, I looked under our empty Christmas tree this morning and realized that it is not empty. There's a medium-sized box with snowmen all over it and a tag that says "To Rod." I have no doubt that the box contains some duckological artifact. I also have no doubt that Cristina means to give it to you next Christmas, as there is no possibility that I would have failed to deliver it to you in time for last Christmas. Well, I might be delivering it to you almost a full twelve months early and you can do what you want with it. When do classes start?

Happy New Year Rod, enjoy the White space!

Rod, have you ever noticed the symmetry involved when you look at your keyboard to type in "Duck"?
I take it as a very good sign! Happy New Year!

Wow Steve,
Keyboard symmetry.... ducks must be way ahead of their time. Great Observation!

Hi Dave,
There's more White Space at the machine shop too. Going back to zero I suppose!
Quack, Quack!
