View Archive → ← Out of It → What I’ve Learned With the Cr-48 26 replies on “The Two Sides of Athena” The Duckies are just chilling with their shades on and then all of a sudden she was stomping up the place. Poor duckies :( That would make a pretty funny animated gif. Nothing like puddle stomping after a stormy day. :) No ducks were harmed in the making of these pictures. Your daughter and mine are separated twins.. Are these publicity stills from Athena Versus Rubber Duck, the Musical? Are these some of the famously intrepid container ducks lost overboard in 1992 and forever drifting the world’s wates since? Amazing they can get so far inland. Though you could say the second pic is a little bit Monty Python too… Just remember, she needs to be wearing purple socks for the “little bit rock and roll” photos. Where’d your lake go? You can see the Road again… She has many more sides than that. Celebrate them all while you can. As pretty as she is, you’re going to be sharing her with boys pretty soon. Very cool! Miriam would approve. Moving from Florida to New Mexico, Miriam (10 years old) really misses water flowing, open to the sky. Now I have an endless stream of “Rubber Duckie” singing in my head. All in all, it could be a worse song. It’s like peanut butter and chocolate. Both go together just fine and usually make it even better. Those are fantastic boots! I know you had a sudden thaw, but the end of February seems awfully early in the season for the Sunglassed Rubber Ducks (Anatidae pergamentum solisvas) to be migrating north. I hope you took them into your home, safely away from the cats, at least until the spring arrives for real. I hoped you stomped in the mud too. I know that I would have been the first one in. Hear, hear! Where’s the pics of Dad kickin’ it in the crick? It’d be a lot more rock ‘n roll if the ducks were exploding. Just sayin’. John, you have no idea how lucky you and your wife are. I love this in my niece. Great memories of walking on the beach at San Diego. One moment she is very grown up and talking seriously with her mom and me – the next she yells “birds!” and heads off at a dead run toward a flock of gulls. It was fantastic. She was twelve at the time. In three months she graduates from college with a 3.8 GPA. And yet there are moments when she is walking with us, very grown up and serious; and the next she is off and running at something that has caught her eye. I hope that she never changes. Those are both good pictures, but I prefer the rubber duckies. Just personal preference. :-D Let’s hope Ohio drains before it becomes the next Atlantis. I’m still processing the fact that you made a Donny and Marie reference. Cute kid, though. :) Wait until you get to the little bit hormonal teen stage and you’ll see many more sides. Side A looks like she’s about to go into the rubber duck breeding business. “Ayup, should be a fine croppa ducks with all this rain we been gettin’.” Side B definitely needs a Jonathan Coulton soundtrack. I don’t know, John. As far as I can tell, both of those pictures are of Athena’s left side. Comments are closed.
