Preparing for takeoff

Dear Ducky …

The duckies have enjoyed their stay at my house, but now, with a mix of vegemite, cheddar and marmite sandwiches packed in their bags — the little darlings have to get ready to leave for their big trip to Tokyo. Their flight is booked for Monday at 11 a.m. and I will be so sad to see them go. We had so much fun: getting to know the swans on Hill Road, the geese down at the Raritan River and the Woodpecker that lives two trees away. The chickadees stopped by for a final farewell bash last night and we are all feeling the effects of the bath water today, let me tell you. I really feel like I made some good friends these last couple of weeks. I do hope they come back soon to visit. It'll be quiet without them around to hide the bath plug, peck the cats' tails quack jokes, and see how many ducks can fit in the kitchen sink. I'll let you know they took off safely on Monday, goodnight quacks for now — R.D. :D
