  2. I grew up in Balranald, which is a town on the Murrumbidgee river - lots of river red gums, and a couple of times in my childhood it flooded. So I saw a proliferation of ducks there.

    I've got to say, these waters look muddy and dirty enough to remind me of the Murrumbidgee, but the ducks? No way. We only got the dowdy, grey feathered kind - no plume in their plumage at all!

    Aren't those ducks worried that when they go in the water they'll stain their suits?

  3. That duck would be mighty fine sitting on my table covered in sauce.

    Quack, quack or is that yum yum?

  4. No dirty duckies here Tim, only clean pretty plucky duckies.

    Kath - he's, um, you know, helping to, err, re-arrange some stray feathers.

    Darlene - you were thinking plum sauce, right, to co-ordinate with the pretty ducky colours?

  5. Yes, but I'd like to put in a word for those Australian ducks. They may not be as fancy as those overseas ducks, but they have a nobility of their own.

    Australian ducks let us rejoice,
    For we are young and quack ...


    Let's hear it for those patriotic ducks!

  6. The Magpie Goose looks more than vulnerable, it's down right anorexic. Needs a damned good feed, poor little fella.

  7. BTW - we are not at all duckist here: every duck is a good duck.

    Actually, the pretty little ducky looks rather startled. Guess he didn't anticipate a beak in his derriere!!

    Drink up James.... I certainly am!!!

    That duck on the right has a perky little butt fan! Something for which, as some of you may recall, Drunkawife has a special fondness.
