Memorial Ducky

Did you know that Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day? This United States holiday started after the Civil War when early observers marked the last Monday of May by decorating cemeteries. As you know, rubber duckies make excellent decorations for any occasion. Many Americans now observe Memorial Day by visiting memorials, holding family gatherings, and participating in parades. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season. Even more unofficially, it marks the start of rubber ducky season! Time to head to the pool and get swimming!

A duck with attitude.

But, prefers living with
his parents – rent free.

Going to be a
…baseball? …football?
…basketball player!

…or, a rapper turned actor.

I’m setting out for a day
of relaxing with my rod and reel.

The lake seems calm
and the weather peaceful.

I’ll catch my share
of fish today —
if not, theres
always tomorrow.

Remember, funny is
what funny does
and tickling a funny-bone
is a jester of good will.

That’s what it’s all about –
Quacks & Giggles.
Well, that and the hokey-pokey.

Rubba What?!

Love and racing
go hand in hand.
It’s a way of life for the
crew and the fans.

He’s a positive addition
to the duck race tradition;
sponsor driven and
community given…
it’s a win, win, win.

A real funraiser!
