This Halloween picking out the right costume wasn’t easy. There were so many good ones to choose from. But once the gang knew what they wanted, it was unanimous. Ducky would be Mr. Incredible. Ted and Blizzard both wanted to be Dash. And Pembleton wanted to be Frozone.

We hope every one has a safe and fun Halloween.

After a couple of incidents that Ducky doesn’t want to talk about, Ducky needed his own vehicle in order to get around. He went to his piggy bank and counted all his human money- $7.28. He then went to his turtle bank and counted all his animal money- 15 lime jelly beans and a linty licorice stick. Ducky was so proud of his savings and knew he would be able to get the perfect vehicle.

After collecting his money, he hopped on the city bus and headed for the Ferrari dealer. After being laughed at, he headed to the other local dealerships. No one wanted to sell him a sweet ride.

Feeling defeated, Ducky remembered his friend and local mechanic, Bio-Diesel Weasel, also sold used cars.  He headed over to Bio-Diesel Weasel’s shop right away. Once he laid eyes on an old timey car, he was hooked.

Ducky made Bio-Diesel Weasel an offer, he couldn’t refuse. He loved lime jelly beans. Plus he owed Ducky a favor, for rescuing his cousin from a cat. Later he threw out the linty licorice stick.

Ducky was now the proud owner of “Ducky Ducky Bang Bang” the loudest and oldest bucket of bolts on the block.  With the help of Mr. Lamb, Ducky was ready to hit the streets at a whopping 10 miles per hour.

Captain Ducky and his crew set off on an interstellar voyage for the perfect snack. They vowed to “boldly go where no animal has gone before.”  When they reached the planet Lambeus, they encountered two strange creatures. The creatures were making something that smelled similar to chocolate chip cookies. Due to the principle of non intervention, Captain Ducky suggested they take the cookies when the aliens (the Lambs) are not looking and to high tail it out of there. Pembleton agreed, stating “it is the logical thing to do.”  They beamed Cadet Ted and Cadet Blizzard to the location of the cookies to retrieve them quickly, before the aliens noticed. They were safely beamed back to the ship. Before eating, Pembleton preformed a complete scan to ensure the cookies were safe. Once it was complete, they enjoyed their snack time.

One day at recess. Ducky and Ted were playing with soap bubbles. Ducky had a giant blue wand that he was using to make large bubbles. Ted was running around and popping the bubbles. Each new bubble got bigger and bigger, as Ducky perfected his bubble making.  One bubble was so big and so strong that when Ted went to pop it, he fell into the bubble and started to float away.

Ducky was horrified. He shouted for help. Pembleton saw what was happening and rushed to get his special plunger, he often uses to get cats out of trees. He aimed; he fired, and thankfully rescued Ted.

From now on, Ducky won’t blow bubbles, or at least not till he figures out a safer way when Ted is around.

Do you have any ideas on how to keep Ted safe, while blowing big bubbles?

Business advice

Tip # 2 Beware of Traveling Sales Koalas

Tip # 2

Beware Traveling Sales Koalas!

Ducky’s first tip, being cute, can sometimes mean trouble when trying to buy wholesale items. Ducky has fallen victim to Traveling Sales Koalas, several times. They are so cute and their offers are too good to be true.

For example, Ducky loves Sister Shubert rolls. Christmas Koala (as seen in the picture above) offered him a great deal on Brother Shubert rolls. When Ducky got them in the mail, they were stinky old sushi rolls! Pembleton would not let Ducky sell the Brother Shubert rolls because of the animal health code.

Another time, Ducky bought a year’s supply of chocolate milk mix only to find out they were made with a fake chocolate called carob. YUCK! Ducky’s customers only like the real stuff.

Then there was the time that Ducky thought he was purchasing the real Eifel Tower in Paris, but then one week later he received a 3 inch miniature in the mail. After all of those horrible purchases, Pembleton warned Ducky not to buy stuff from traveling sales Koalas, but the power of cuteness is hard to resist, especially from those wearing Christmas sweaters.

Ducky is a World Champion Heart-lifter. If it was an Olympic sport, Ducky would have the gold medal, no contest.

What is a Champion Heart-lifter, you might ask. Well a Champion Heart-lifter, is someone with the unique gift of bringing joy and happiness to people having a rough time in life. Ducky often visits children who are in the hospital, or the elderly in nursing homes to lift their hearts and make them laugh.  He always enjoys sharing his snacks with them.

Ducky is a Champion Heart-lifter, but you can be one too. Just be a friend to someone in need.

This weekend, Ducky, Pembleton, Ted, and Blizzard flew up to Vermont to enjoy the last days of the fall berries. Pembleton came up with the idea to pick some blueberries and bring them home so that the Lambs could make a blueberry pie.

When they got to Vermont, they met some of the local animals and asked them where they could find the best blueberry patch. A porcupine told them about a human farm, but Pembleton said they would have to pay the farmer, and Ducky didn’t have any money. Plus, they prefer wild blueberries because they are sweeter. Then they met a black bear cub who told them about a patch of never ending blueberry bushes in a field between two small mountains. After several hours of hiking, they finally reached the BEST BLUEBERRY PATCH IN THE WORLD!

Somehow only Pembleton managed to collect blueberries for the pie, while Ducky and the Lil’ Guys got a belly ache from eating so many blueberries. Blizzard was practically all purple from blueberry juice. They had a great day.

“Ducky! The blueberries are for the pie not your belly!”, said Pembleton.

With Halloween only 12 days away, Ducky and the gang are already in the holiday spirit. Last night they decided to watch one of their favorite Halloween movies, Casper the Friendly Ghost.  Earlier that day, Ducky had to take a physical education test where he had to run, do jumping jacks, and somersaults. Ducky was quite exhausted and was heavy eyed during the movie. Before he knew it, he was snoozing.

In his dream, he saw four super cute ghosts in front of a large house. The first one who was quite round said “I’m hungry.” The second ghost, who was tall and thin, said “Tonight is a great night to use my telescope. Look at how full the moon is.” The two little ghosts just giggled and waved as they chased each other. When Ducky woke up, he wondered why the ghost from his dream were so familiar, but then he realized he was hungry. So he went and got a snack.

“I’m hungry, can ghosts eat?”

A Rocket is a vehicle that is shot up into the air using explosive gases. They can be simple or complex, depending on its use. While rockets can be used as a weapon, Pembleton prefers to study rockets that are used for space exploration.

Pembleton, Ducky and the rest of the gang are HUGE fans of NASA’s Johnson Space Center. They enjoy looking at the rocket ships and learning about space. However, Pembleton has to keep a close eye on Ducky, because he doesn’t like to just look- he likes to RIDE!

Until Next Time, Pembleton wants you to KEEP BEING CURIOUS!

The other night, the Humans went to an Indian restaurant for dinner.  They brought the boys back some Kheer (Indian rice pudding). The rice pudding was the best rice pudding Ducky had ever tasted. He wanted more.  He thought about how he could find the perfect rice pudding.  After a few minutes, he had a plan. He would go to India, and find a Kheer Guru. But first, he had to convinced Pembleton to drop him and the lil’ guys off in India.

Shortly after they arrived in India, they found a baby elephant who knew a Kheer Guru. The guru lived on the other side of the jungle. The baby elephant, with permission from his mom, offered to give Ducky and the lil’ guys a ride, but only if he could have some pudding too.

Once they got to the other side of the jungle, they were at the Kheer Guru’s house. They knocked on the door. When the Guru answered, they were greeted with the sweet smell of amazing rice pudding. The Guru let them in and taught them all the secrets to making the perfect rice pudding. The best part was eating bowls and bowls of pudding.

“Rice pudding, here we come!”

Fall is one of Ducky’s favorite times of year. He likes the fall leaves, especially the orange and yellow ones. He likes dressing up in costumes and getting free candy. But his favorite part of fall are the desserts! His favorite cookies are Pumpkin spiced and iced cookies by Libby’s and his favorite pie is- you guessed it, Pumpkin Pie!

“Vacation at last.” Mrs. Lamb sighed as she woke up in a comfy bed in their German chateau. She got up, looked out of her window and saw the beautiful German country side. Knowing she was far, far away from Ducky, she couldn’t help but smile.

“Are you ready to party?” Mr. Lamb said as he put on his hat and grabbed his favorite apple juice stein.

The Lambs left their chateau in the country, hopped on a train, and were on their way to Oktoberfest! This was the one time of year, where they were Ducky-free and were able to do what they wanted to do. As they arrived, Mrs. Lamb wasted no time and got a pretzel from their favorite vendor. They rode several rides, played games, and ate plum cake.

As the day was winding down, the Lambs ran into an old friend, Mr. Hedgehog. “How are you, Mr. Hedgehog?” Mr. Lamb asked as he sipped on his apple juice.

“I’m having a blast! Plus, I got this awesome shirt for free. Did you know that Oktober is now called Ducktober?” Mr. Hedgehog replied.

Mrs. Lamb in shock dropped her pretzel and Mr. Lamb choked on his apple juice. “What did you say?” They asked together.

“They didn’t have enough time to make the signs this year, but next year, this will be Ductober fest and they are building a new hall in honor of an Emperor named Ducky. Do you know him?”

The Lambs, quickly said Auf Wiedersehen without answering his question. They needed to get back to the peace and quiet of their chateau. The only true place they could escape Ducky, or so they hoped.

Guten Tag!

Ducky and Pembleton were called on another rescue mission. This time two black bear cubs in the Adirondacks got themselves in a pickle. While playing, they stumbled on an abandoned camp site and smelled something wonderful – jelly donuts. The donuts were inside of a big green box made of metal. One cub helped boost his brother up to grab the donuts, but they were just out of reach. He tried and he tried, until he fell into the big green box. Then he realized he was stuck and began to panic. His brother ran to get their mother. When she arrived, she was not too happy. After looking around, she decided there was only one way to get him out. She had to call Ducky and Pembleton, the Animal Rescuers.

Ducky and Pembleton received the message from a carrier pigeon and were on their way. This time, they took Pembleton’s helicopter. Shortly after arriving they were able to get the little guy out, safely and Ducky gave them fresh black berry jelly donuts.

When they got home Ducky went straight to the kitchen for his afternoon snack. “Hey where is my PB & Fluff sandwich?” Ducky asked. “Lambs! Lambs! LAMBSSSSSSSSSS!” He shouted.

“It looks like the Lambs are gone.” Pembleton said as he read a note left by Mr. Lamb.

Tip #1 BE CUTE!

Ducky is a business man, I mean duck, at heart. He enjoys making money to buy snacks and toys. Over the years, he has come up with several business tips to help any business man or duck be successful.

Tip #1

BE CUTE. Moms, grandmas, grandpas and even dads can’t resist cuteness. If you use cuteness to sell your product, whether it be a macaroni necklace or popsicle box, they won’t be able to resist.  Try not to be TOO cute. It may backfire and they may guess you are on to something, like buying a ton of candy for a Lego Star Wars party in the living room planed for after the parents go to bed…

Ducky was rummaging through his old toy box, when he found his sheriff’s costume (badge and all). After making sure everything fit, he started his patrol. While making his rounds, he noticed something was different in the kitchen. He pushed a step stool to the counter, hopped up, and noticed there were NO COOKIES in the cookie jar!

Ducky was so upset. He was on a mission to find the culprit. First, he suspected the Lambs. But they only like ginger snaps and these were chocolate chip. Then he questioned Bear and Appa, but they had not been in the kitchen since dinner. Last, but not least, Ducky interrogated Pembleton.  While giving Pembleton the third degree, Pembleton picked a crumb off of Ducky’s chest feathers and gave him the stink eye. “Excuse me Ducky, but I believe you were the last to eat the cookies. These crumbs are evidence.”

“Umm..Umm… No I didn’t.” Ducky said slowly backing away.

“Yes, you did! The lil’ guys even saw you!” Pembleton accused. “I’m going to need your badge and cap guns, and you’re in time out until the parents get home.”

Ducky stomped his boots and fired off his pop guns into the air yelling “I’m not going to time out and you can’t make me.”

But with one super look, Ducky knew Pembleton was serious. Ducky sadly handed his badge and guns over to Pembleton and marched to time out, pouting along the way.

“You can’t make me go to time out!”

Late last night, Ducky was hungry. He was craving COOKIES. He walked in to the kitchen and saw that the cookie jar was too high. What was he going to do? He thought about it for a minute, and then decided to wake up the Lambs. The Lambs were grumpy from waking up, but Ducky said there was an emergency in the kitchen that needed their attention. Once they got to the kitchen Ducky pointed to the cookie jar. “It’s too high for me. I need a boost, “he told them. Even though the Lambs were angry, they gave him a boost and Ducky got his cookie.

The Lambs stood there in shock as Ducky hopped off the counter and walked out of the kitchen without sharing or saying thank you. As they went back to bed, Mrs. Lamb told Mr. Lamb, “We need a vacation, SOON.”

“Just a little higher.”

Pembleton's Lab 2 Volcanoes

What is a Volcano?

Volcanoes are mountains formed by magma, and volcanic ash. Volcanoes can exist on land, under water, and even on other planets! Volcanoes start small but over long periods of time, magma, which turns into lava when it reaches the volcano’s surface, piles up causing the volcano to grow.  In fact, the entire Hawaiian Islands were formed by volcanic eruptions. Sometimes when they erupt, they get smaller or change shape like Mt. St. Helens in Washington State, when the side blew out!

Until Next Time, Pembleton wants you to KEEP BEING CURIOUS!

The other day, Ted and Blizzard were sitting out in the yard passing a ball back and forth. While they were playing Ted said to Blizzard, “My dad is the best bear in the world!” Blizzard thought about this for a second and then said, “that isn’t possible, because my dad is the best bear in the world!”

Who do you think is the best bear?

“My dad”…”No, My dad”

This morning, Ducky, Ted, and Blizzard slipped out of the house while Pembleton was working on one of his science projects. They were going to meet Ducky’s old friend Potbelly Phil for a mud party. Pembleton never lets Ducky take Ted or Blizzard to play in Potbelly’s mud hole after seeing how dirty the place was. Ducky figured they could sneak out for a few hours before school, and Pembleton would never even know they were gone. Unfortunately, somehow, Pembleton found out.

Every year around this time, the gang goes out to find their pumpkin friend named Jack. This weekend they found him! Ducky, Pembleton and the rest of the gang are so excited to have Jack back.

Jack has not been carved yet, but they all have their thinking caps on and are coming up with ideas. How do you think Jack should be carved?

(Leave your ideas in the comment box!)

Here are some pictures from last year. They went with the traditional look.

Happy DUCKTOBER!
