Rubber Ducky

Rubber Ducky
Rubber Ducky, you're the one,
You make bathtime lots of fun,
Rubber Ducky, I'm awfully fond of you;

(woh woh, bee doh!)

Rubber Ducky, joy of joys,
When I squeeze you, you make noise!
Rubber Ducky, you're my very best friend, it's true!
We are getting closer to my Rubber Ducky
Why I just love my Rubber Ducky!
 My Rubber Ducky is looking out figuring the fast route.
 It's the 21st Annual Rubber Duck Regatta, Sunday, September 6th.
As many as 200,000 ducks will swim in the Ohio River and I, Sweet William The Scot, own six of those Ducks!
All the money raised goes to help the Cincinnati Freestore Foodbank going directly to providing meals for hungry children in our community.
Years ago Buddy Gray an activist for the homeless in Cincinnati was a friend of  Lees.
He started the Drop Inn Center which feeds homeless.
On November 15, 1996 a mentally-ill homeless man, whom Buddy Gray had helped, shot Gray to death in his office at the Drop Inn Center.
We always want to help those less fortunate souls.
The first prize winner will receive a 2016 Honda HR-V and possibly $1 million, if their duck is the KEMBA Million Dollar Duck. The second prize winner will receive $100 from Kroger every week for a year ($5,200 total), and five additional winners will receive $500 cash from KEMBA Credit Union. Ducks, which are $5 each or six for $25.
The Great American Quacky Games take place August 28th on Fountain Square to get us going.
 Oh if I won I would kiss those big red lips.
My Lee never got this picture up last year.  Look at all the Rubber
Duckys ready to swim the Ohio River last year.
Thanks for being a  friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of  mine

Signing Off 
Sweet William The Scot
Don't forget  Oreo's Demolition Derby at the Blogville County Fair. The derby will be held on August 29th.
The Big Toe with Bella driving, Kismet giving direction from overhead and me, Wills, doing the dirty work are available if you need help.
I got to check this out real close because I lost my glasses.
Oh I am so happy with what I got in the mail.  Why can't you tell it brought a smile to my face.
The beautiful card and "Life's better with a Scottish Terrier" magnet came from my bestest friends Lassie and Benji.  Why I cannot agree more!  Why it is just a crackerjack, super duper,  cat's pajamas magnet.
Wait cat's pajamas let me delete that.
See you next week.

  6. Combine the 2 events. "Demolition Ducky".

  7. Sweet William and Lee I will cross my paws and Mom will cross her fingers and toes and send prayers that you will win first place. You would be able to move and not worry about selling you home. You could even hire people to do the yard work and house work and not move at all. That was very nice of Lassie and Benji to send you a gift.
    Your Friend

    1. Oh Bentley we know miracles do happen but if you ever saw in the furs all those duckys why it would have to more than a miracle. Lee is beginning tomorrow a round of twelve weeks intense physical therapy to try and reset her mind, inner ear balance and vision. They still are not working together. We definitely need moved but doubt if it will ever happen.
      You remembered our wish to move.
      Sweet William
