Me: You’re on the bedspread, Ducky.
Ducky: I don’t know what that is.
Me: It’s the blanket that goes on top of the bed.
Ducky: Got it. Good to know.
Me: Off please.
Ducky: Off what?
Me: The bedspread.
Ducky: Hey, I just learned what that word means!
Me: Yes you did. Off.
Ducky: It’s a blanket. Like the ones I lie on.
Me: Similar. But different.
Ducky: How so?
Me: You aren’t allowed to lie on the bedspread.
Ducky: I just learned the definition of “bedspread” and I think you’ll find that is not clearly started in said definition.
Me: I don’t care. Off.
Ducky: How am I supposed to know the difference between blankets I can lie on and ones I can’t?
Me: Well, you could listen to me when I tell you “off.”
Ducky: That seems arbitrary.
Me: I’m trying to make the bed. Off please.
Ducky: So this blanket or “bedspread” if you will, will end up on the bed?
Ducky: But I’m not allowed up on the bed.
Me: No, you’re not.
Ducky: So why would I give up this blanket?
Me: Because I said so.
Ducky: Now that’s definitely arbitrary right there!
Ducky: But the bedspread smells like you. And laying on it is like I’m laying with you.
Me: Is that true or are you just saying it to get me to let you stay there?
Ducky: A little from column A, a little from column B.
Ducky: If you let me keep laying on it the bedspread will start to smell like me.
Me: That’s less of a selling point that you’d think.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: I love you, Ducky.

It is the first part of trip with my parents and brother’s family as we revisit where we used to go on vacation when we were kids.
I’m going to avoid mentioning that the main reason Myrtle Beach exists is as somewhere for people to go who can’t make it to FLORIDA!
So apparently the three other mammals in my house like to play “This is what the crime scene will look like when Ag snaps one day.”
"Oh, Edith. You know somethin’? If the whole damn world was to go to the dogs, long as I had you standin’ by my side, ya’ know? Or sittin’ by my side. Or layin’ here like this by my side? Everything would be just okay.
I’ve been blowin’ my own horn for a lot of years. But I’m gonna’ tell you somethin’. I ain’t nothin’ without you.”
Thank you, Jean.
Beautiful shot by a friend. It seems to capture the essence of what Gizmo and I would consider a perfect day.
But look closely.
That’s a kid.
Last Sunday’s new Ducky post. Remember to follow wellthatsjustducky for new Ducky posts every Sunday at 7:00 pm ET!
Me: For what?
Ducky: All the things.
Ducky: Feeding. Petting. Water. The yard. The lady. The mama.
Ducky: Tuggers. I like tuggers. Thanks for those. And fuzzies. And treats.
Me: You’re welcome.
Ducky: Walks. Thanks for the walks. And for forgiving me when I go on my own walks.
Ducky: And baths. I don’t like baths, but they’re good for me. Not all dogs get baths.
Me: There was an ASPCA commercial on TV, wasn’t there?
Ducky: They tricked me. I know to leave the room when that “Arms of the Angels” song starts.
Me: Ah. They do have a new song now, yes. Joe Cocker’s “You Are So Beautiful.”
Ducky: And the first dog looked like Foley.
Ducky: Not all dogs are as lucky as me. And I don’t say “Thank you” enough.
Me: Not all people are as lucky as me. No thanks needed. I wish all those doggies had homes.
Ducky: Me too.
Me: Best doggies in the world come from shelters.
Ducky: Like me!
Me: Yup. And like Foley.
Ducky: Thanks, Daddy. For everything.
Me: Thanks, Ducky. For everything.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: Love you more, Ducky.
GPOYW: “I Once Decided The Key To Looking More Attractive To Girls Was To Part My Hair In The Middle” Edition. (at York, PA)
Hey, kids! It’s me!
I was allowed to be a special guest on the “Parental Advisory” Podcast at HorrorPalace.com and was able to discuss perhaps the greatest motion picture comedy of all time, “Young Frankenstein” and “Transylvania 6-5000” which is NOT the second greatest motion picture comedy of all time.
The podcast focuses on horror movies and their appropriateness for children. I of course have no children and generally avoid horror films so, ‘natch they called me!
I am a film buff though, and a bit of a comedy know-it-all, so why not!?
The broadcast is almost two hours (!) so like I told your mom, don’t try to swallow it all at once. The first twenty one minutes is a lot of me talking about tumblr and life and college and Béla Fleck. For those who want to get to know me better, you might enjoy it. Then we get to the films:
- 21:00-01:15:00 Young Frankenstein
- 01:15:00-01:49:00 Transylvania 6-5000
Feel free to leave a comment on their board so I can get invited back! :-)
