Duck Money

There is a such thing as Duck Money! Thomas came up with these coins. In theory, the left one is more valuable, being actual silver bullion. The round features a duck riding an airplane, reminescent of my piloting days. The duck has reading glasses and is reading a book entitled "The Duck Book," consistent with my teaching activities. Tying it all together, the tailfin is emblazoned with my initials "RW" (Rod White). On the other hand, the "My Lucky Duck Penny" is one of those roll-your-own affairs which reminds me of Machine Shop Alumni Brother, Roger King who once said, "I'd rather be lucky than good, any day!"
There are a couple other duck coins I need to post one of these days ..... the Canadian Dollar coin (the Duck Buck) which features an "almost duck" , a Loon ....... and the Arkansas State Quarter which has an actual duck on the back side.
As long as you have a duck coin, you'll never be broke.
Quack, Quack!

Happy Groundhog Day

Today is when Americans celebrate the mid-point of the 12 weeks of Winter. If the Ground Hog see his shadow today, he will be scared and hop back into his burrow. Then there will be six more weeks of Winter weather. Otherwise, we will be saved from the bad weather and springtime will only be 6 weeks away!
This duck is a duck "piggy bank". Since it isn't a pig, it is actually a Duck Bank. It has a slot in the top for putting in coins, accumulating wealth! Dave & Cristine over at Dave Mows Grass gave me this delightful duckological duck decoy depository decoration.
