Name That Duck!

Ok. brief post today...I am off to sample the delights of a "Health & Safety" study day...Tomorrow will be more of the same as Chris is taking me to London for the day (Christmas Pressie). We are off to see the matinee stage production of War Horse, which will be a real treat, if not a bit of a busy day as we need to get back to lock the animals up for the night.




Now that good natured Sheffield despot that is Yorkshire Pudding suggested that I run a naming competition for the two ducklings that were kidnapped  collected yesterday....and so, bowing to his academic experience , age and excitable nature I am proud to announce the "name the duck" competition!
Send me your ideas for the two babies.....they can be anything but smutty (Thomas!) and by Saturday I will pick the best two names and the nominee will receive a real, home made Trelawnyd prize through the post!
( "oh be still my beating heart!")
so let's hear your ideas.......

  1. Do we know if they are ducks or drakes yet?...seems to be a hint of an upturned tail there....

  2. Well, once you know whether they are standy-uppers or sitty-downers you could name them after characters in the Walking Dead.

    'Grrrr' and 'Arrrg' spring to mind, or maybe Rick & Lori or Otis and Duane ...

  3. can i make a suggestion ? as we have called our puppy Hooper....an ode to the great character in the film JAWS played by Richard Dreyfuss......my girls suggest Quint and Brody ( Robert Shaw and Roy Scheiders characters )....we feel this would complete the circle and reunite these 3 once and for all......PLEASE !

  33. Or, keeping with the kidnapping scheme, which some might say you really and truly did, you filmgoer you, Lindbergh and Sloan.

    The former name of course, a sad 20th century news item, and the latter from the comedy/farce Christmas in Connecticut when Sydney Greenstreet's character erroneously thinks that the Good Housekeeping baby has been kidnapped.

    ReplyDelete
