"Pick up the shells John, don't stomp them."
"It's okay, Suz, they're all empty. Bummer!"
"Toil! I buy you buckets, you eat the handles."!
The secret word is toil. If you find it in the story please highlight it and click on it. The duck will then appear.**
I used the word here as an exclamation, clearly and definitely not its usual usage.

The 'toil' prompt word and the picture were selected by Grandma.
It's posted on her blog, Grandma's Goulash
Her Rules: Use the photo as inspiration for a story of 140 characters OR 140 words. It doesn’t have to be exactly 140, just not more.
Using the prompt word is not required
**Note: Groucho Marx, on his TV program, You Bet Your Life (link), always had a secret word. If the word was used during his program the duck suspended from the ceiling would drop.
I did click (on the blank word) and saw the blue duck.
(I had the little boy stomping, too.)

Texas A&M students are called Aggies and there are all kind of Aggie jokes around. They are similar to blonde and Polish jokes.
One Aggie joke is that the parent says that he buys his Aggie student books but the student eats the paper.
1) So nice of you to have gone to my other 'birdhouse'. Appreciate very much your comments there.
I have no answer on the difficulty in getting through to my 'Rainbow'. Meaning I should be getting comments but were denied and not even realizing it. I hope nothing of this happens next week.
2)Your postings are great! The hidden duck is a real surprise. A pleasant novelty. Thanks for sharing!
