One night Ducky was watching a marathon of Magnum P.I. on Netflix with the Humans and the gang. It was one of his favorite shows. He liked the action, the adventure, the car, and the hair. He wondered, Wouldn’t it be cool to be a P.I. in Hawaii. After about the 6th episode in a row, his eye lids began to grow heavier and heavier, until he was dozing off…

All of a sudden, he was on a Hawaiian beach, wearing a snazzy shirt and he had a MUSTACHE! Then he realized, “I am Ducky P.I. Oh Yeah. Lets find some bad guys,” he said as he hopped in to his red Ferrari. He enjoyed the nice ocean breeze through his wavy hair as he munched on a nice veggie Hawaiian pizza, ready for his next case.

When all of a sudden there was an EARTHQUAKE! Everything was shaking. Was one of the volcanoes erupting? But then, he realized the car was slowly starting to disappear and Higgens was shouting at him to wake up. Then he was back in the living room. Pembleton was there shaking him, “Come on! It’s time to go to bed. We need to brush our teeth.”

Ducky was sad it was all a dream but hoped when his head hit the pillow he would be back on the beach and solve the case before morning.

Earlier today, Ducky and Pembleton’s friend Flat Stanley arrived in Israel. He is visiting the gang in Israel all the way from Kansas! Flat Stanley has been all over the world! He has been to Ethiopia, Germany, Japan, Peru, France, and Australia!

Over the next couple of weeks, we will be posting pictures of Stanley as we go on some adventures around Haifa and the rest of Israel (maybe even a few surprises)!

Shalom & Welcome!

Today at the beach Ducky found a bottle washed up on the shore. He heard a story about how people stranded on deserted islands sometimes put messages in bottles asking for someone to come and rescue them. Then Ducky thought, “maybe it’s a treasure map?” Ducky dusted the sand off the sides of the bottle and peered inside.

“Ouch!” A baby crab bit his beak. The bottle didn’t contain any message at all. It was just a home for a baby crab. Ducky carefully put the bottle back where he found it and ran off to splash in the water.

Ducky and the gang love to camp! Every summer they go out into the wilderness with their animal buddies and spend a couple of days enjoying nature.

Pembleton is in charge of safety and packing the tent. While Ducky is in charge of the camp fire and meals. Ducky takes his job very seriously. He makes sure they have hot cocoa and smores every night and oatmeal for breakfast.

After breakfast, Pembleton taught Ted and Blizzard how to properly put out a camp fire, which is very important before leaving a camp site. Then, they hit the trails.

Pembleton is an avid reader of the local animal paper. When he spotted an ad for 1 free yoga lesson for beginners, he decided that he and Blizzard were going to check it out. Ducky and Ted didn’t want to be left out, so they tagged along.

At first the yoga lesson was pretty easy. There was a lot of inhaling and exhaling, reaching for the sky and wiggling their toes. Then things got a little more advanced. Cat pose was challenging but doable. Downward dog was easy for Ted and Blizzard, but a little more challenging for Ducky and Pembleton, because they have shorter arms. Then there was the headstand. This one was tricky, but the gang were fast learners.

During the cool down period, the instructor turned the lights down low and played some soothing music. So soothing, someone (we won’t mention who) fell asleep and was snoring loudly!

After the class was over, the Yogi was so impressed with the gangs yoga skills, he invited them back next week for a free advanced level class.

Earlier today, Ducky and Pembleton were looking at some old photos. They were so old, it was before they knew their little buddies Ted and Blizzard.

Ted and Blizzard were confused. They had never heard of baseball and were wondering why Pembleton was prepared for battle. This afternoon, the gang went to a nearby park, where Ducky and Pembleton taught the little guys how to play catch.  Then they came home to watch the end of the Oakland A’s beating the Red Sox, while eating Cracker Jacks. Ducky is a huge fan of Stomper (the A’s mascot) and caramel popcorn.

Award Ceremony.

Once Captain One Mitten and his crew were in the pokey, the gang went home to reunite Mr. Sloth with his daughter, Abigail.

When they got home Ted, Blizzard, and Abigail were so happy everyone made it home safely. Abigail ran in to her father’s arms, giving him the biggest hug ever. Then she went over to Ducky and Pembleton who were standing near by, hugged them, and told them, “Thank you.”

Mrs. Cottontail invited everyone to stay for lunch. She was making vegetarian shepherd’s pie, one of Ducky’s favorites. During lunch, the phone rang. Mrs. Cottontail answered, “Hello…yes, he is here. One moment.” She turned to Pembleton and handed him the phone. After, a few yes ma’ams and a “We’d be delighted”. Pembleton hung up the phone.

“That was Queen Pugglesworth. She wishes to present us with the medal of bravery and heroics for our job well done. We are invited to the palace this evening and all of our friends are invited too.” Pembleton announced with excitement.

The End.

Once Ducky and the gang were discovered as intruders, the jig was up. The cat pirates rounded them up and snatched Ducky’s mustache off.

“Who do we have here?” said Captain One Mitten. “Well if it isn’t my arch nemesis Ducky and Pembleton. Because of you, Egor has turned soft. He now volunteers at a nursing home and is doing community theater. It disgusts me how he is such a stinkin’ do good-er.”

“Community theater? Sounds interesting. What’s his next play?” Ducky asked.

“WHAT?!?! Never mind you. Keep your mouth shut, while I come up with an evil plan to deal with you and this time you won’t get away.”

Just as he spoke his last word, there were high pitched sirens from outside on the docks.

“This is Scotland Yard. You are surrounded. Come out with your paws up and don’t try any funny business.” Chief Bear-Brown yelled through the megaphone.

“NO!!!!! How do you always foil my plans?” Captain One Mitten yelled, as one of his crew members confirmed they were surrounded by the Scotland Yard K-9 Unit.

“You see my dear fellow, Inspector Conrad, or you may know him as Mousetrap, contacted his colleagues at Scotland Yard and requested back up before we entered your hide out. You never stood a chance, especially once Ducky, or should I say Cheeseball, started the piratey celebration.” Pembleton replied. “Now let’s get Mr. Sloth back to Abigale and the crown jewels back to the museum.”

Realizing they had been defeated. The cat pirates and Captain One Mitten were marched out of the cannery, by Conrad and were off to the pokey.

Next, the finale…

"Come out with your hands up!"

“Come out with your hands up!”

Inside.

Once inside the look-out asked, “So what do they call yas?”

Pembleton was caught off gaurd, but Ducky quickly replied, “I’m Cheeseball, here’s my buddy Mousetrap,” pointing to Conrad, “And this is my other buddy Heathcliff McGee,” pointing to Pembleton.

“Umm…nice names. Come on in, were are preparing to load up the ship”, he said while leading them through the cannery.

“Quick we need a distraction,” Pembleton whispered.

“No, problem.” Ducky answered with a wink.

When they reached the other cats, Pembleton and Ducky saw it was in fact the sinister Captain One Mitten leading this dastardly endeavor. The cat pirates had almost finished loading up the boxes and would soon be shipping out to sea. Ducky hollered at the top of his lungs, “Such a treasure calls for a great piraty celebration!” and he began to sing “ninety-nine bottles of milk on the wall.” All the cats joined in, including Captain One Mitten.

While the other cats were distracted, Pembleton snuck over to the corner and found Abigail’s father tied up next to the robot. The robot was sad because Captain One Mitten had not only taken the crown he had stolen, but also the gold metal he had won during Robofest. Even worse, Abigail’s father was disappointed in him for participating in Captain One Mitten’s evil plan.

Pembleton untied Abigail’s dad and they snuck towards the front door. Pembleton tried to get Ducky’s and Conrad’s attention, but they were too carried away singing and merry making.  As Pembleton tried to get their attention, one of the pirates accidently stepped on Ducky’s tail, which then detached. First the pirate was horrified that he had so easily hurt Cheeseball. But then realized as Ducky continued to sing, that Cheeseball and his friends were in fact intruders and began to shout, “Intruders!”
