While in Italy, Ducky had a fountain made in his likeness. He wore a toga and a crown of olive leaves just like Caeser. When modelling for it, he thought it was weird that Gatocelli didn’t look at him much and that he wasn’t allowed to look at the statue until it was finished. Towards the end of sculpting, Ducky got tired, took off his costume, and went to get a snack.

When he came back the statue was gone. “Where is the statue?” Ducky asked.

“I put it on top of a fountain and it’s now in the garden”, replied Gatocelli.

Ducky was so excited … until he reached the garden. Once he saw the fountain, his eyes almost bulged out of his head and he sank back in embarrassment! The statue was not of him as a Caeser but as a chubby cherub- PEEING! So embarrassing! This is the last time he will trust Christmas Koala to recommend an artist!

 

Disgusting!

Happy Birthday To Ducky Adventures!

Ducky and the gang have been apart of our family for years, but it wasn’t until last year that we finally shared them with the world! On September 18th, 2012 we posted our first blog post on Ducky Adventures (Hello World). Since then, it has been a fun and wild ride.

In between school, work and traveling in our real lives, we have gotten to explore their amazing world with Ducky’s Business Tips, Pembleton’s Labs, and some of our series (Case of the Missing Sloth and Mystery of the Desert Sands). This year we posted 153 blogs post and hopefully we will post even more this coming year. We had such a fun year, and we can’t wait to see what happens in the next!

Some (but NOT all) favorites!

While on their Italian vacation, Ducky and the gang stopped by the Leaning Tower of Pisa and things got a bit hairy…

I'll huff and I'll puff!

Ducky and friends have been doing quite a bit of traveling lately. Their lastest adventure was Italia! They visited Florence, Pisa, Cinque Terra, and ROMA! While in Rome, Ducky got into some trouble at the Vatican after he made a minor improvement to some of their artwork.

"Much better!"

Tip # 5 Pay the Bills!

Tip # 5 Pay the Bills!

Tip # 5

Always pay the Bills on time.

This tip seems obvious, but if your business is booming, like Ducky’s and your having fun- you might let it slip your mind. One time Ducky forgot to pay the Bills and they were really angry! So mark your calendars and set a Google reminder! Because no one wants the Bills to show up uninvited.

Last night while studying, Pembleton heard an awful noise coming from the garage. Ducky had invited some of their friends from the neighborhood for an impromptu concert. “What are you doing Ducky?” Pembleton asked after the noise stopped.

“I’m singing the blues, Pembleton. What do you think I’m doing?” Ducky asked.

“Well at first I thought a cat might be dying, but then I recognized your singing.” Pembleton replied.

“Hey that’s not nice.”Ducky pouted.

“Sorry it’s the truth,” Pembleton said, realizing he was being a little mean. “I’m sorry Ducky. I didn’t mean to sound so mean. So why are you singing the blues?”

“Oh you know,” Ducky’s replied, “I got the- Sunny California, everything’s wonderful blues!

“WHAT?!?!” Pembleton said, shaking his head. “Sometimes I just don’t understand you.”

"Sunny California, ain't nothing wrong blues!"

“Sunny California, ain’t nothing wrong blues!”

Ducky and the gang are currently living in Israel. As such they are learning about and celebrating many Jewish holidays. Tonight starts Rosh Hashanah, also known as the Jewish New Year! As part of the celebrations they ate apples with honey and pieces of a special round challah bread, and then they blew rams horns (which was kinda gross).

Chag Sameach! Happy Holiday! Shana Tova! Good Year!
