Bottoms Up!

Stanley Park

Blackpool

England

“You know the world is going crazy when

the best rapper is a white guy,

the best golfer is a black guy,

the tallest guy in the NBA is Chinese,

the Swiss hold the America's Cup,

France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance,

Germany doesn't want to go to war,

and the three most powerful men in America

are named "Bush", "Dick", and "Colin."

Need I say more?”

~ Chris Rock

Great stuff!

The duck is French and clearly believes you are English, Elizabeth...it might be confused by your name, or by the accent of the bloke with his arm around your trim waist.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Ray!

Or by my accent... smile

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Perhaps.... a bit tipsy smile
DUCKS' DITTY.'
All along the backwater,
Through the rushes tall,
Ducks are a-dabbling,
Up tails all!

Ducks' tails, drakes' tails,
Yellow feet a-quiver,
Yellow bills all out of sight
Busy in the river!

Slushy green undergrowth
Where the roach swim--
Here we keep our larder,
Cool and full and dim.

Everyone for what he likes!
WE like to be
Heads down, tails up,
Dabbling free!

High in the blue above
Swifts whirl and call--
WE are down a-dabbling
Up tails all!

From my favourite book
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks for sharing Bill! Made me smile!

That's where swans win in such a situation having much longer necks. I expect the duck wishes it was a swan!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: So true, Alan!!!
Long live all the dabbling ducks. I absolutely love that line from Chris Rock.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Thank you Mary! Chris Rock has a way with words... smile
I always think ducks look hilarious when they do this.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh they do!!!
