Duck Duck Goose

When you create a post you never know where it will go... that was the case with our cheesy tribute.

I was lead to Jolene's blog Give a Family Tree a Shake and...A few Nuts fall out. She is a proud mother of a young soldier in Afghanistan. She had the idea to send her son Chad a rubber ducky to remind him of the Duck Duck Goose game. You know~ don't be the goose running around, duck down! I am wondering how many ducks we could get to his company to remind them all that being a duck is not such a bad plan, and how much we support our troops. Andi is doing the very same thing!

An inexpensive rubber ducky with your name and where you're from would be a welcome treat. While I am on my duck hunt, I may for some treats to put in my package as well.

The whole idea quacks me up!Are y'all game?

Email me direct-like and I'll see if I can get some momentum behind this. I think anything that reminds our boys and girls that we support them is a great idea. (it should, I was one of 'em, and my wife still is!)

Sandi, I'm thrilled that more bloggers are coming on board to support our troops and Chad's Company in Duck Duck Goose. Thanks for the great post!

Okay, I just had to visit you back! I was excited when I saw the name of your blog! (or as we say here in South Alabama...'blawg').

I'm so glad you visited me and I look forward to checking in on you often.

I went to the Whistle Stop Cafe in Juliet, GA (where they filmed Fried Green Tomatoes). We ate there and had the most divine food and fried green tomatoes and peach pie, yummy!

How far is Irondale from me here in Montgomery? Would love to visit ya'll!

Hi, how can I help with the rubber duck campaign?

Montgomery girl~ You are welcome back anytime! Someday I'll tell you our Juliet Ga story.
MrsNesbit~ I'd love to see a beefeater duck in Chad's collection! If you want to send it to WhistleStop~ we'll get them to him.

Love your blog! Thanks for visiting mine, too. I'm going out tonite and I'll look for a rubber ducky. Also, I love that upside down tomato plant idea...I'm going to have to think about trying that with something.
