Cute ducks. 🙂 And from where do you have your words shipped? You seem to know where to get the best quality.

Actually? That was exactly what I needed right now.

This is wonderful. It gave me a good chuckle and I have nominated it for “Post of the day” over at authorblog

I run out of words too (hard to believe but I do). So, if you have any spare – can you ship some to me? Thanks bud.

Do you have to be home to sign for the words?

Those ducks are super ridonkulously cute. I second what McSwain said. Where exactly do you get your words? They’re always great.

Looking for some words myself. Not down, just out.


Milena March 21, 2008 at 6:11 pm

I once witnessed just this very thing. The mama duck actually got tired and came over to give her ducklings some much needed help. It was an awesomely cute thing to watch. Her exasperation, their worried little quacks. I loved it. Funny post. You have to link me up with your purveyor. Like everyone else, I too want to know where you get all your fantastic words.

From a super secret source…so secret that last night even I couldn’t get a call through to my supplier. 🙂


JCK March 21, 2008 at 6:56 pm

Love those little baby ducks. I was beginning to worry about them…and then they made it!

I’m sure you’ll get another shipment in real soon!

Happy Easter weekend to you, Jennifer.


Tootsie Farklepants March 21, 2008 at 9:05 pm

Whew! For a second I thought they weren’t going to make it!

I am hoping you used all your words on your book…the ducks were a lesson in motherhood. I would have gone back and helped those two 30 seconds before they DID IT on their own. I just need to calm down.
