I’m coming home, Ducky!

I’m coming home, Ducky!

This week's new Ducky post!

There will be LOTS of news this week as we prepare to release the book for wide availability on Monday, November 4th. If you aren’t yet following "Well, That’s Just Ducky!" now is the time!

The new post from yesterday over at wellthatsjustducky:

Ducky: Hey, Daddy.How’s the book coming?
Me: We should be able to order a proof this week.
Ducky: …
Me: Good. Things are coming good.
Ducky: Good. 
Me: I thought this would be a good week for us to write one of the posts that people earned by contributing.
Ducky: Write one of the what that who earned by how now?
Me: Sandy from Pennsylvania contributed to our campaign and we agreed to write a post on the topic of her choosing.
Ducky:  We?
Me: I agreed that we would do it.
Ducky: Any other contractual obligations to which you have committed me?
Me: Several. But let’s focus on this for now.
Ducky: I don’t even know this “Sandy.”
Me: Not to worry. She gave us a couple of options and one of them is to talk about how you feel about cats! 
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: And the other option?
Me: Come on! Cats!
Ducky: I do not like cats. End of post. How much did she pay for that?
Me: Come on. Maybe we could delve into why you don’t like cats. Learn something new. Gain some insight into the root causes of cat and dog dysfunction.
Ducky: …
Me: ...
Ducky: I am not interested in providing free publicity to my nemeses.
Me: Technically she paid so it’s not free…
Ducky: What is the other option?
Me: I don’t think it’s a good choice for you.
Ducky: I keep telling you I’m smarter than you give me credit for. I can wax philosophical on any number of topics. Let’s hear it.
Me: The Alabama Crimson Tide.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Okay.
Me: Have any clarifying questions?
Ducky: A few.  First, what is an “Alabama Crimson Tide.”
Me: It’s what they call the football team at the University of Alabama. I guess the other sports teams too.
Ducky: Uh huh. What does crimson mean?
Me: It’s a kind of red.
Ducky: And I have a follow-up…
Me: A tide is what the ocean does.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: So it’s like their mascot?
Me: Kind of. But they sort of have a mascot too.
Ducky: …
Me: It’s an elephant.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: A red elephant in the ocean?
Me: No. No. Just an elephant.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Cats punch me in the face and sit on the couch and hiss at me for no good reason. 
Me: I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.

Me: You look happy, Ducky!
Ducky: I am! Thanks for making it cooler in here!
Me: You’re welcome. But I didn’t really do it. Summer just ended. Finally.
Ducky: Well, thanks for not stopping summer from ending!
Me: I always appreciate your steadfast faith in my omnipotence. At least when good things happen.
Ducky: You look happy too!
Me: Yeah. I had a good week.
Ducky: That’s rare.
Me: Probably not as rare as I let myself believe. But this week really was good. And I’m going to let myself be happy about it.
Ducky: Good.
Me: But this is the best part of my week.
Ducky: Lying on the floor?
Me: With you. Yup.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Maybe your weeks really aren’t that great.
Me: No, Duck. I’ve just reached the point that I know what really makes me happy. I know what matters. And I forget sometime, and sometimes I let things that aren’t important to me upset me. But I’ve gotten better at letting myself enjoy the moments that matter.
Ducky: …
Me: Like lying on the floor with my best buddy.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Does rubbing my head and belly matter?
Me: It makes you happy. So it matters a lot.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: I love you, Ducky.

Friends,

Less than a week into our 30 day campaign and we have already reached 88% of our goal! As you can see in the new clip above, Ducky is excited!

Thanks for helping to spread the word! We know everyone can’t contribute at this time, but we’re so glad that so many people are being introduced to Ducky and his blog and are now aware of the upcoming book! Please keep sharing when you think the time is right!

Love you!

Ag & Ducky

Last Sunday’s new Ducky post! Remember to follow wellthatsjustducky for new Ducky posts every Sunday at 7:00pm ET.

I’m afraid there’s no new Ducky post this week. There have been some home owner near disasters at “Well That’s Just A House” that have been a bit all consuming. We promise to be up and running again next week. Thanks for understanding!
Me: Okay, Ducky. I explained to the internet people. Now give me that adjustable wrench.
Ducky: It’s a bad solenoid.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: I know it’s probably a bad solenoid, but right now we need to stop the water from flooding the neighborhood.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: So sandbags. Sandbags would be better than a wrench.
Me: Ducky…
Ducky: Right tool for the right job, that’s what I always say.
Me: You’ve never said that.
Ducky: I’ve never said half the things you say I say but…
Me: Give me the wrench.
Ducky: Hey, doesn’t this kind of count as a post? Becau…
Me: GIVE ME THE WRENCH!!!!!
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: …
Ducky: I loooooooooove you, Daddy!
Me: I love you, Ducky.

Ducky: I don’t know if I like this new vet.
Me: You haven’t met her yet.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: It hasn’t gone well so far.
Me: All we’ve done is wait.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I don’t like waiting.
Me: Neither do I, but it hasn’t been that long.
Ducky: We should leave.
Me: No, I don’t think so.
Ducky: You’re enabling her. She’ll never change if you keep rewarding bad behavior.
Me: Getting to clip your nails is no reward.
Ducky: …
Me: I mean…
Ducky: You said blood test.
Me: Technically, I didn’t say “only a blood test.”
Ducky: I don’t know if I like Daddy.
Me: Stop it. If you can handle needles and blood tests you can handle a little nail clipping.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Then why don’t you clip my nails?
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: Because you can’t handle a little nail clipping.
Ducky: There will be biting.
Me: Yeah.
Ducky: Oh there will be biting!
Me: I know. Try to limit the bloodshed. 
Ducky: No promises. 
Me: Okay. Sorry. Still love me, Ducky?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Still love you, Daddy.
Me: Oh good. Love you too, Ducky.
