I hope your fabulous story about the prodigious duck gets plenty of positive comments, quite the opposite of my "Lyin' King" 8 months in the making and ignored like the proverbial motherless child.
Have a good weekend.
Can't wait to see it. You no doubt heard Woody Allen's joke about the lady who brought her spouse to a shrink to tell him t that for the past twenty years her husband thought he was a chicken. "Twenty years!" the shrink cried. "Why did you wait so long."

He then made her walk the plank. My kind of guy, that Barbossa Oh, and I hope you don't take as long to retoin as Mac did! Lol
Just noticed your new story about the lions--have to fix what's-his-name's supper now, but in the words of Gen. Corncobpipe, "I shall retoin."
PS Who is that in your pic, a meerkat? And I've been meaning to ask: What's "still warm?"
I spent an hour replying to this, stopped to google something and lost it all! I'll send you an email after I make what's his name's sandwich.
ADDED 6:58 EDT: All set. Look in your inbox on your email account. I really didn't mind having to do a "do-over"--your story was definitely worth the time.
