The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

With mallards toward none

Trophy duckWell, I suppose he is kinda cute, and if nothing else, I learned never to use the top of the range as a backdrop for a photo. (Note: I have replaced the original photo in this piece with Folger's Crystals a better one found at Okiedoke, shot by the intrepid Don Danz.) A dozen of these were handed out last night; I got the twelfth. (For the record, either three or four of my picks won their respective categories.) As for the rumors that I was seen on the actual dance floor, well, I plan to claim that all 15 or 20 people who have photographic evidence of the incident are buying material from AP and Reuters stringers and therefore you can't believe a word of it. (And anyway, Kurt Hochenauer is a better dancer.) I wonder if Dwight and Sarah have yet discovered that they're each entitled to 0.5 duck. And somewhere in the midst of it all, I asserted that this was my Best. Post. Ever. Nobody agreed.

Well, the stove hadn't been on in about 48 hours, so I figured there was no danger of meltdown.

It COULD have happened to a nicer guy. But I'm glad for you anyway.

You know, I would have taken you out for a congratulatory spin on the dance floor, if I didn't live 1300 miles away or so. But still: a toast to you (not a toasted duck, just a toast), and a hearty congratulations.

When you have photo of Duputy Duck that you're comfortable with, throw him back up there occasionally. Maybe he could be your Friday boid.

Congratulations, Charles! While I'm sorry I couldn't be there, I offer a virtual standing ovation to join the others. I am continually amazed not only by the sheer amount of material you write - but that it is always consistently interesting and entertaining. It's a duckie well deserved.

I believe the photo credit goes to Don Danz.
