Six Pictures — My Alphabe-Thursday (4th), the letter "Q"
This giant rubber duckie made me laugh a little, Mrs. Jim is smiling. Sitting in Sydney Harbor, it is a piece of art commissioned for the Sydney Festival. It was created by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman [Zap2it Blog for more]. We enjoyed the Festival activities all over town. Saturday night we went to a concert in the park. It didn't Quack while we were there.
So now, "Q" is for Quack. 'Quack' like the language that ducks talk in. Quack is one of the first words that children learn when they are learning animals and sounds is 'Quack' for ducks or 'duckies'.
These two ducks are headed for a treat that KP and Mrs. Jim are going to feed them. They have oodles of bread to make large bread crumbs for the ducks and the 'fishies'.
Below is a picture I took of KP and Mrs. Jim calling the ducks for for their treats. I hear them now, "Quack quack quack quack! Here Ducks."
My sister Lois (link) and I used to Quack to the ducks to get them to talk ('quack') back at us. We still do this. I didn't know until one day she barked at a dog we met. I stared laughing and she guessed that I also bark at the dogs. It turned out that we both try to get all of the animals we meet to talk back with us.
(Oh, yes, today is National “Patriot Day” in remembrance of 9/11.
It is also National Make Your Bed Day, try to make yours to take a load of the household care taker upper for a day.)

I first saw that huge rubber ducky when it was floating from country to country -- love him and wish I could see him in person! The Kroger display is certainly a conundrum.... I'm not sure I would ever have used a plastic yellow duck bib on my kids!
Give me those real ducks anytime!
A similar Duck is in LA too :)
