Saturday 25 February 2012: Ducks with Beers
To the merriment of the present staff, I took the ducks to the local, conveniently around the corner located fine, fine brewery. We shared a Laughing Paw Ale, while the Beloved kept his Jake's Vanilla Porter all for himself. A good time and many a beer was had by all :)
Eric (whose mug can be seen photobombing here) gave us both a Club Membership for Christmas, and that comes with your own mug. Number 218 for me, 219 for the Beloved. The guy who makes these is a bit of a stoner, and since the beginning of the Mug Club the mugs have gotten bigger and bigger. Eric's, being one of the first members, is 20 oz - the last batch topped at 36 oz. I think mine is close to that. It makes for a lot of increasingly-funny-as-more-beer-has-been-drunk "size doesn't matter" jokes.
Today we went for groceries through the snow, then to the Goodwill to donate some stuff - and buy some, then to the Pub, home for homemade pizza, Shrek Forever After and Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Both very entertaining. Such a busy day, I almost had to backBlip :)
This is where the journey started. You can use the BuckyBlip tag to see all the exotic/cold/interesting destinations they've visited and how Bucky left his single life behind to become a married man.
If you'd like them to visit your neck of the woods and show them around, send an email to buckytheducky[at]googlemail[dot]com with your postal address and blip journal name. Bucky and Buckita are leisurely paced duckies though, so it might be a wee while :)
