Kayak Duck

Dave Mows Grass notes this as one of the Greatest Ducks of All Time. I think because he is kayaking these days. This is a brass duck/kayak. Maybe the idea is that a kayak enthusiast needs a pair of brass ............ paddles connected to his stick. It truly is a marvelous looking duck. It reminds me of Scandanavian duck sculptures. I used to think about going kayaking. But then I discovered the couch and TV nature shows. Sometimes me and Eric go fishing with Bill Dance. We sit on the couch. He sits in his boat on the TV. The couch - it is more correctly spelled "cowch". Sitting on the cowch is a good sport, a safe form of bull riding!
Quack, Quack!
