Memorial Day 2010

Remember those who have served and given, for it is their sacrifices that allow us do the silly things we do today.

Congrats Duck U Grads 2010!

The Commencement ceremony for Duck U. is this afternoon.  As an Alumnus of our fair school, this day always brings back interesting memories for me... which is why I don't much mind working on this Sunday. 

Strangely enough, while I remember my grad ceremony, I don't remember walking across the stage, shaking the hand of the U's president and being handed my "diploma", then walking off the stage.  Everything right up to the moment, yes.  Everything afterwards, sure.  But the actual event?  Nuthin'.

The grads that decide not to march always confuse me.  Don't they realize that the ceremony isn't for them, but their families?  Ah well... still and all:  congratulations, ducklings!  Welcome to the big world!

The Flock

Once upon a time, there was... a rubber duck.  Its name was, and remains, Scooter The Wonderduck.  This is that duck:

Scooter The Wonderduck has been with me since 1989 or thereabouts, and has place of pride amongst my flock of rubber duckies, for he is The First Duck.  He's in remarkably good shape for being 21 years old.  He's got a black smudge on the right side of his chest from falling off a U-Haul's dashboard, and his color has faded a little bit, but he's still a grand example of the species Anatidae Crocinus.  And tonight, my friends, he would like to introduce you to those who have come after him: Wonderduck's Flock.
