Ducky and the gang have been wanting to attend the ‘Animals Star Wars Conference’ for the past couple of years. This year, they finally got to go and it was AWESOME! Ducky and Ted attended a Jedi Leadership workshop, while Pembleton and Blizzard attended a robotics workshop. Their favorite part, was the keynote speaker, Chewbacca. They had no idea what he was saying, but they loved every minute. Plus they got to wear some pretty cool costumes.  They cannot wait until next year!

In response to the information from Ducky and the gang, the police came to arrest Captain One Mitten and Egor, but when they arrived the cages were empty. A thorough search of the premises revealed nothing. The camel cops radioed in their findings and returned home empty handed.

Bearistotle’s Treasure.

They slowly entered the room, not knowing what to expect. On the ceiling there was an colorful mosaic depicting a galaxy and hundreds of stars. It was so beautiful, they almost forgot why they were there. At the top of the ceiling there was an oculus letting in a beam of light, shining down onto a pedestal in the center of the room.

“What is this? A BOOK! We came all this way for a stinking BOOK!?!” Ducky shouted as he looked at the pedestal.

“Wait a second! Ducky. Books can be very valuable treasures. I need to examine it.” Multilingual Mole said as he and Pembleton took a closer look.

“What are all those pots for Ducky?” Ted asked.

“Maybe those are filled with treasure.” Blizzard added.

“Good thinking.” Ducky said as he waddled over and opened one of the lids. “Oh My Goodness! GOLD! The tasty kind.”  Ducky dipped his wing into the pot of honey, just for a taste. “Oh, this is the good stuff.”

“Wait Ducky!” Pembleton shouted, but it was too late. Ducky had already dived in.

“This book, isn’t just any book.” Multilingual Mole explained. “It is Bearistotle’s mother’s famous recipe book.” Ted and Blizzard ‘Oooed’ and ‘Aaaawed’ as Multilingual Mole named delicious recipe, after recipe.  He then continued, “She made the best baklava in all the land, but her recipes were believed to have been lost in the great fires of Alexandria.” At this point, Multilingual Mole was giddy with excitement, as was Pembleton and the little guys. “This find is not only important for history and prosperity, but also the good of animal kinds tummies.”

As Multilingual Mole and Pembleton thumbed through other famous and delicious recipes Ducky, who had finally gotten unstuck from the honey pot came over and asked, “So what’s this your looking at!” Everyone turned to Ducky and gave him the stink eye.

“Weren’t you listening?” Pembleton asked.

“Actually, it’s a little hard to hear. I have honey in my ears.” Ducky replied.

Once they had examined the treasure. They made preparations to return to the nearest city. There they reported the cat pirates to the authorities and told them their location. Then Multilingual Mole and Pembleton held a press conference, announcing they had uncovered the Mystery of the Desert Sands. Amanda Panda and Penelope Penguin, donated their pendents to a local museum and in appreciation of their gift, the museum had two replicas made for the girls. Cornelius questioned the female camel that had been working with the cat pirates and was relieved to find out she had no idea what they were up to. Before handing the recipe book over to the museum for safe keeping, Ducky and the gang made a batch of Mama Bearistotle’s baklava! It was so good, they had to make another.

The End!

Unlocking the Mystery of the Desert Sands.

Before handing over the pendants, Amanda Panda and Penelope Penguin slid the two charms together. The halves formed the key Multilingual Mole would need to open the massive, ancient doors that stood before them.

Multilingual Mole translated the encryption on the pendent, “MORE THAN THIS KEY IS NEEDED TO UNLOCK THE MYSTERY OF THE DESERT SANDS. AS THE HALVES OF THIS PENDANT COME TOGETHER TO FORM A MESSAGE, SO TOO THE SECRETS OF BEARISTOTLE’S CHAMBER WILL ONLY BE REVEALED BY WORKING TOGETHER.”

"Cool! These are the best friendship pendants ever!"

“Cool! These are the best friendship pendants ever!”

“What does that mean? Haven’t we done enough teamwork for one adventure?” Ducky asked.

“I think it means that it will take all of us to unlock the mystery and the door.” Pembleton said.

“But how? I don’t even see a keyhole”, Amanda said, as she looked back and forth between the pendent and door.

“I think we might be too little”, said Ted sadly.

“Yeah, look how big those doors are, and how little we are”, Blizzard agreed.

“I got it!” Pembleton shouted. “How about we become big!”

“What does that mean? Are you drinking enough water? I think you might be loosing it!” Ducky replied.

“No, I’m not losing it! Each of us may be little, but together we can do big things! Haven’t you learned anything from our previous adventures?” Pembleton explained, “We need to climb on top of each other so we can see higher up! Maybe with Cornelius’ help, we can find the lock.”

They all climbed onto Cornelius’ back to get a better view. They searched for anything that might match the shape of the pendent. After searching for several minutes, Penelope tugged on Pembleton’s wing and then whispered, “Do you think that could be it? Up there?” she asked.

“Yeah! I think you found it!” Pembleton shouted with joy. He startled shy Penelope, and caught her before she fell off the hump. Both of them blushed a little, but then they got back to work.

Ducky, Ted, Pembelton, and Blizzard quickly formed an animal ladder on top of Cornelius and passed the pendent up the chain. Once Ted, at the top, received the pendent, Amanda told them, “Scoot to the right. No the other rights you nimrods! No, now that is too far! STOP! Right there Ted!” Then Ted slid the pendant into the cave wall and pushed it into place. There was a loud click, but then nothing happen.

They waited for about 10 seconds before they heard the rumble of stone doors sliding open. “It worked! It worked!” Multilingual Mole shouted as he did the happy dance. “Now lets see this treasure.”

Stay tuned for the GRAND FINALE!

"Woo Hoo! It worked!"

“Even though each of us might be little, together we can do BIG things!” -Pembleton

“Don’t try to move!” Captain One Mitten snarled. Ducky and the gang were cornered and Captain One Mitten had a sword.

“We surrender! Don’t hurt us!” They all yelled.  Captain One Mitten then led them into the cave where Amanda Panda and Penelope Penguin were being held, along with Multilingual Mole.

“What are you going to do to us?” Pembleton asked as he, along with Ducky, Ted, and Blizzard were forced in to an empty cage.

“I, Captain One Mitten, will have my revenge. I have not forgotten about what happen on the island. You cost me my treasure. I plan on come up with something extra dastardly to do to you all. It will be the most terrible,  dreadful, fearsome, frightening, ghastly, horrendous, horrible…”

Ducky quietly whispered to Pembleton, “Don’t bad guys know once they start monologuing, the good guys always win?”

As Captain One Mitten was blowing hot air, and reciting the details of his evil plan, Ted and Blizzard slipped through the bars and tip-toed over to where Cornelius was tied up, just under Amanda and Penelope’s cage. Ted and Blizzard were able to open the satchel and retrieve the stinky boot, which they tossed to Amanda.

Amanda first was disgusted by the revolting odor, but then she knew what she needed to do. Captain One Mitten was still monologuing about how once he got Multilingual Mole to figure out how to open the door to his riches, he was going to do “the most appalling, atrocious, awful, monstrous, gris-” That was when Amanda chucked the stinky boot and smacked him across the noggin.

They all froze, as Captain One Mitten teetered and tottered back and forth while trying to finish his monologue. Then he fell to the ground with a loud ‘thud’.

“Wow, I’m surprised we can’t see birds flying around his head. Good aim, Amanda!” Ducky said with a little awe in his voice.

“I know.” Amanda said proudly.

“Pembleton, what would we have done, if I didn’t pack that stinky boot?” Ducky asked as Ted and Blizzard released them from their cage, but Pembleton acted as if he didn’t hear him. Soon everyone was released. Then Ducky and Pembleton dragged the Captain into the now empty cage and told Egor to get into the cage too.

“Okay, now lets get out of here!” Amanda firmly stated.

“Wait!” Multilingual Mole shouted. “We can’t leave the mystery unsolved. We have come all this way and this mystery has laid uncovered for hundreds of years. The ancient test reads ONLY THE FAINT OF HEART WILL BE ABLE TO UNCOVER BEARISTOTLE’S GOLDEN TREASURE THAT LAY BEYOND THIS DOOR. Now I need to see the girls pendents to figure out how to unlock the door.”

Reluctantly, Amanda and Penelope, who had retrieved their pendents from Captain One Mitten, handed them over to Multilingual Mole.

Over the Edge!

After they were able to open the secret passageway, Ducky and the gang entered the dark tunnel, along with Cornelius. It was so dark, they could barely see anything. Before heading too far in, Pembelton took the old blanket and wrapped it around the stick to make a torch. He asked Ducky to hold the torch, while he lit the torch using his flint key chain, he always carries just in case of emergencies like this.

The tunnel twisted and turned downward, deep beneath the desert sands. They nervously followed the path. In the distance they could hear Amanda Panda, giving Captain One Mitten an ear full about how horrible their conditions were.

“You call this a falafel! I wouldn’t feed this to a rat!” she shouted.

“We must be getting close.” Ducky whispered to Cornelius, who whispered to Ted, who whispered to Blizzard, who then whispered to Pembleton. “What? Wet mustard boogied in the closet?” Pembleton whispered back to Blizzard. “What does that mean?”

“I don’t know. Just keep going.” Blizzard said as he hopped up on Pembleton’s back. He was getting tired.

They were almost at the end of the tunnel, when Pembleton stopped them. “Okay. We need to come up with a plan.”

“What do you mean? We just go in there and stop the bad guys!” Ducky said, walking towards the cave. “Why do you have to…”

Before Pembleton could stop him or Ducky could finish his statement, the floor opened beneath him. Ducky began to plummet towards a pit of sharp spikes. Luckily, Cornelius had fast reflexes and a long neck and was able to catch Ducky by the webbed toes before any harm was done. But unfortunately Captain One Mitten had hear Ducky’s scream and commotion caused by the booby trap.

By the time Ducky was back on solid ground, Captain One Mitten and Egor, had the gang surrounded.

Secret Entrance.

They looked everywhere for the trigger mechanism that must open the secret passage, but they couldn’t find it anywhere. Eventually Ted and Blizzard got tired and started to play in the sand. Cornelius decided to take another nap, but Ducky and Pembleton kept searching until the Sun started to go down.

Suddenly, Cornelius’ ears perked up and he sniffed the air. Then he said in a low deep voice, “Everyone hide, someone is coming!”

Ducky, Pembleton, and Cornelius hid behind a giant obelisk, while Ted and Blizzard hid behind a sand dune. They waited for what seemed like forever before anyone but Cornelius could hear someone coming. Then they saw Captain One Mittin’s first mate, Egor, leading a camel with a large sack through the desert. When the camel, wearing a large purple bow, got closer they could see that the sack actually contained a prisoner.

First Ducky whispered, “It’s the cat pirates, again!”

Then Pembleton whispered, “That’s Multilingual Mole tied to the camel’s back! We need to rescue him.”

Cornelius tilted his head to get a better look at the female camel. Losing his mind with infatuation, he was about to whistle, when Pembleton managed to clasp his wing over Cornelius’ lips.

“Get a hold of yourself”, Pembleton whispered harshly.

“Sorry”, sighed Cornelius quietly.

Then they watched as Egor walked directly toward the wall where they had seen the foot prints leading into the wall. Egor hopped on top of the female camel’s back and used a gnarled staff to press a tiny button high up on the wall. The wall itself began to slide away revealing a long dark tunnel. When Egor was out of sight the wall slid back into place.

Pembleton examined the button that Egor had pressed to open the secret entrance. It was too high to reach even on top of Cornelius’ back. “How are we going to reach that button?” asked Pembleton.

“Don’t you remember. I packed a long stick”, said Ducky. “We can stand on Cornelius back and use the stick to reach the button.”

“Wow! Good thinking Ducky”, agreed Ted and Blizzard.

“See! I packed some useful stuff”, said Ducky.

Pembleton reluctantly climbed on top of Cornelius and used Ducky’s stick to press the button. The secret door slid open and they entered the long dark tunnel.

Meanwhile.

“Give us back our pendants! You ruffian!” shouted Amanda Panda & Penelope Penguin.

“Arrr… Be quiet. The only good thing about prison, was the peace and quiet. I didn’t escape to hear your belly aching. ” Captain One Mitten shouted back at the girls. “Once Egor gets here with that blasted mole, I’ll be able to unlock the treasure with your ‘friendship’ pendents.”

“Why do you need our pendents? They are ours. We got them fair and square from that antique dealer.” Amanda told the Captain.

“The dealer, said they were worthless and gave them to us for a bargain.” Added Penelope.

“One animal’s trash, is another animal’s treasure. Or in my case, a key to an ancient temple that was buried by a terrible sand storm hundreds of years ago. Once we unlock the temple. I will be RICH! Hahahaha!” Captain One Mitten cackled (huhu), “hairball.”

“Let us go.” Penelope begged.

“No. I can’t let you alert the authorities. Don’t worry, if your good, I’ll only make you walk the plank.” Captain One Mitten replied.

“You won’t get away with this! When our friends, find out, and they will, they will send you back to jail.” Amanda said sneeringly.

“I escaped, once, I can do it again.”

You won't get away with this!

Desert Ruins.

They reached the end of the map.

“There is no one here! What do we do now?” asked Ducky. “Maybe we took a wrong turn.”

“I don’t think so. I double checked the map, plus there are too many ruins here to be a coincidence”, said Pembleton. “Everyone take a look around. Maybe we will find a clue.”

Ducky, Ted, Pembleton, and Blizzard hopped off Cornelius and began to explore. Cornelius decided to take a nap. Ducky looked high and low – but mainly low – as he was unable to climb most of the ruins. Pembleton carefully climbed to the top of a pillar to survey the area, but he didn’t see anything except more ruins. When they met back near Cornelius, Ted and Blizzard reported they didn’t find anyone but they found two pretty ribbons. They thought they might make nice gifts for Amanda Panda and Penelope Penguin when they got back home.

“WAIT A MINUTE!”, shouted Ducky. “Those ribbons look awfully familiar!”

“You are right, Ducky”, Pembleton added, “Those look exactly like ribbons that Amanda Panda and Penelope Penguin wear all the time. But what are their ribbons doing all the way out here in the desert?”

“I bet Amanda and Penelope are our friends in danger”, Ducky concluded.

“We’ve gotta’ help them”, Ted said.

“No one messes with my friends and gets away with it”, Ducky said sternly. “Whoever is responsible for this mess is in big trouble!”

As Duck and Pembleton untied the ribbons, Blizzard called over to them. “Hey, I found some paw prints over here, and they lead directly into this stone wall. There must be a secret passage in the wall.”

“Good eye Blizzard!” Pembleton said, as they began searching for the trigger that opened the passageway.

Pretty ribbons.

Pit Stop.

The desert was hot and everyone including Cornelius wanted to get to the destination on the map as quickly as possible. Ducky tried to encourage Cornelius to speed up by repeatedly smacking the camel’s hindquarters with a stick and yelling “Giddy Up!” This approach, however, did not have its intended effect because, after a couple of minutes, Cornelius found a shady spot and sat down refusing to go further.

“Well, it’s probably about time we all took a short rest anyway”, said Pembleton as he unharnessed the supplies that Ducky had packed. “Maybe we can have some lunch.” Pembleton was trying to sound positive because he knew everyone was cranky after being in the sun for so long. When as he unpacked the “supplies ” he couldn’t help but be annoyed. “Ducky! Where is the water and the food?”

“Oh, I, uh, forgot to pack water, but I’m pretty sure I packed food,” said Ducky.

“What are you talking about?” said Pembleton as he laid out the stuff from their pack. “I see a few mushy french fries, two sticky butterscotch candies, a rusty fork, an old blanket, a cracked bottle, UNO cards, and a very stinky boot. Ducky! Why did you pack ONE stinky boot? We don’t even wear SHOES! What are we supposed to do with this junk!?!?”

“I was rushing. I just started grabbing stuff. Plus, you have to admit, UNO is a good family game,” Ducky said sheepishly.

“We got an idea,” Ted and Blizzard said in unison. “It looks like there is a well behind Ducky and an old bucket with some rope,” explained Ted. “If Pembleton is able to fix this bottle, maybe we can use it to store water for the rest of our trip,” Blizzard added.

“Good thinking little guys,” Pembleton said, “but I’m not sure how to fix the bottle.” Pembleton thought about it for a minute, then noticed Ducky was chomping on some gum. He forced Ducky to hand over the used gum and molded it over the crack. He then used some of the cloth from the old blanket to cover the gum to keep their hands from getting sticky. “I think that will have to do until we get to our final destination.”

After everyone had enough to drink and their bottle was filled, Pembleton made Ducky apologize to Cornelius. After some coxing, Cornelius forgave Ducky and they were on their way, again.

Desert Trek.

“Now that we have figured out the map, we need transportation. Any ideas?” Pembleton asked.

“I got an idea!” Ducky shouted. “I’ll be back soon. Stay here with the little guys.”

Ducky went to Ali Baba, owner of Ali Baba Ganoush’s Restaurant and asked if he could borrow his brand new Jeep Cruiser. Unfortunately, Ali had heard about the ‘Great Pudding Disaster of 2011’ and would not allow Ducky anywhere near his new jeep. Instead, he offered the services of Colonel Cornelius, a four humped Camel.

Pembleton was starting to become impatient after 15 minutes of waiting. Their friends, even though he didn’t know which ones, were in trouble. Just as he began to pace, Ducky and his new friend the Colonel, showed up. Ducky had even gotten supplies!

“Hop on! We got some trekking to do!” Ducky exclaimed.

“Wow, Ducky! Great job.” Pembleton said, as he hopped on and took the reins.

“Tally Ho.” Ted and Blizzard shouted as they ventured out in to the unforgiving desert.

"I'm getting Thirsty." -Ducky

“I’m getting Thirsty.” -Ducky

The Library.

“What does this mean?” Ducky asked. He had never heard of Bearistotle and he definitely didn’t know how knowledge made you thirsty! Hungry, maybe. But thirsty?

“Give me a second.” Pembleton said scratching his head.

“I know” Blizzard said. “Me too!” shouted Ted.

“What does it mean?” Pembleton and Ducky asked at the same time.

Blizzard explained, “Bearistotle was a very wise philosopher, scientist, honeyologist… you name it, he knew about it. Anyways, there is a library dedicated to him that isn’t far from here.”

“There is a statue out front and everything.” Ted added, “We learned all of this in Ms. Cottontail’s class. Weren’t you paying attention Pembleton?” He already knew Ducky wasn’t.

“Your right!” Pembleton shouted, “Let’s head over there right now. I bet that is the starting point on the map.”

***

When they made it over to the library, they marveled at the statue of Bearistotle drinking from the fountain of knowledge, or should we say honey.

“Wow, it’s beautiful.” Ducky said. It was hard for him not to dip his wings in to the fountain. Unfortunately, it was not actual honey, but gold plated statue. He was sad, but Pembleton got them back on task.

“I think this ancient writing must mean something. It has to be our next clue.” Pembleton said as he sent another message to Multilingual Mole.

“Your the second person this week to ask me about this writing!” replied Multilingual Mole. “The text says: THIS QUEST IS NOT FOR THE FAINT AT HEART. THIS IS THE BEGINNING THAT MANY HAVE STARTED, YET FEW CAN COMPLETE. THE TREASURE IS ONLY FOR THOSE WHO CAN UNLOCK THE TRUE MYSTERY OF THE DESERT SANDS.” Then a second text came from Multilingual Mole, “What is going on Pembleton? What is this quest?”

“I don’t know, but we are about to find out,” Pembleton replied.

The Map.

Once Ducky and Pembleton made sure the poor monkey was being taken care of, they returned to their investigation of the map.

“Where is this map leading us?” Pembleton asked.

“Obviously to the giant red ‘X’!” Ducky answered.

“But where do we start?” Pembleton asked.

“I don’t know. I don’t have all the answers! Wait, why does this map feel crusty?”

“Wait, just one minute.” Pembleton said. Pembleton sniffed the map and his eyes grew big. Ducky knew he was on to something. His super sniffer was never wrong. Pembleton walked over to the table and grabbed a lemon. Now Ducky was just confused. Why did he need a lemon?  Then Pembleton squirted the lemon juice over the crusty area and held it over a candle. Soon a secret message appeared in light brown letter.

“How did you know how to do that?” Ducky asked.

“It’s simple science, you see…” Ducky quickly cut Pembton off.

“You can tell us later. Do you know what this ancient scribble means?” Ducky asked.

“No, but I know someone who does.” Pembleton said. He quickly grabbed his emergency phone and took a picture. “Multilingual Mole will know. He is a professor of ancient texts.” Shortly after sending, Pembleton received a text message back with the translation: TO UNCOVER THE MYSTERY OF THE DESERT SANDS, ONE MUST THIRST FOR KNOWLEDGE, AS BEARISTOTLE ONCE DID.

“Huh?” Ducky said as he scratched his head.

To be continued…

"Why is this map crusty?"

“Why is this map crusty?”

Mystery of the Desert Sands Part 1

While traveling in the Arabian desert, Ducky and the gang visited a small village, where their favorite restaurant, Ali Baba Ganoush, is located. They ordered a full spread: grapes, hummus, pita, and shakshouka (poached eggs in a tomato stew). They were enjoying themselves, when all of a sudden a disheveled monkey crawled through the door and collapsed. In his hands he gripped a map.

“Quick! Get some water!” Pembleton yelled as he came around the table to check on the poor fellow.

“Your friends are in danger. You must help them ” the monkey gasped as he handed the map to Pembleton.

Blizzard rushed over with a glass of water. Pembleton helped the monkey to a pillow in the corner of the restaurant and urged him to take a few sips, before he fell asleep, exhausted by the journey.

“I think he will be okay.” Pembleton said, “but he will need to spend a few days in the hospital resting.”

“What about the map?” Ducky asked. “And the friends he mentioned. Who needs our help?”

“I don’t know, Ducky, but we are going to find out.” Pembleton said as he looked at the map and examined it closer.

“Oh no! What are we going to do now?” Ducky cried as he shook the bamboo bars of the cage. “We need to get home before dinner time!”

“Calm down Ducky,” said Ted. “Blizzard and I know what to do.”

Ted and Blizzard were small enough to slip through the bars. They walked over to a nearby palm where a pile of pirate swords laid. Together they dragged one over to Pembleton, who used the sword to break free from the cage.

“Quick, we need to get out of here,” Pembleton said. “But how will we escape when our boat is stuck?”

“Don’t worry, I got a plan!” Ducky said. As they reached the beach Ducky put his wings in his beak and whistled as loud as he could. Within minutes, the pod of dolphins from earlier in the day appeared. They hopped on to their backs and headed back to safety just in time.

When they looked back, Captain One Mitten was on the beach waving his sword. “Arrr… No body steals the treasure of Captain One Mitten!”

As soon as they made it back to port, they notified the authorities about the pirates. Soon after the police arrested the cat pirates and were able to give back the treasures stolen from a local museum, including the treasure the gang escaped with. The police were also able to tow the USS DtPb back to port.

Once Ducky and the gang got back home they were ready for a snack and a nap. They had had enough adventure for one day.

Until next time.

Part 5 Trapped! Ducky’s Mediterranean Cruise

Once the pirates left, Pembelton gave Ducky and the little guys the all clear to join him near the pirates camp site. Pembleton was searching high and low for the radio jammer, but was unable to find anything.

Meanwhile, Ducky was becoming more and more curious about the pirates loot. He picked up a stick and started pocking and prodding around. Finally after becoming bored, Ducky hit one of the barrels and cracked it. Then gold coins started falling out.

Ducky lifted Ted and Blizzard up to one of the locks on a rusty chest. Since they were little, they were able to easily pick the lock. When they opened them up, there were crowns, scepters, jewels, and more golds coins. They were so excited they didn’t even see the bamboo trap hanging just above their heads.

Just as they were about to leave the pirates camp, Ducky wanted to grab one last coin that rolled next to the chest. As Ducky waddled over to get it, they heard a CLICK. Before they knew it, the cage came crashing down on them. They were TRAPPED! Like rats!

"Can we keep it?" -Ducky asked.

Part 3 Sand Bar! Full Steam Ahead! Ducky’s Mediterranean Cruise

Part 4 The Pirates! Ducky’s Mediterranean Cruise

Their boat was stuck in a sandbar and Pembleton felt like something fishy was going on because every attempt to radio for help was being jammed. The only thing they could do is take their life raft to the nearby island and search for help.

Once Ducky, Pembleton, Ted, and Blizzard made it to shore, they decided to explore the island. But Ducky insisted that they all stick together and Pembleton reminded them to walk quietly.

It didn’t take long for them to discover what was going on. Ducky and Pembleton heard rough voices through the dense jungle foliage. They carefully peeked through the bushes only to find CAT PIRATES!

“That explains it”, said Pembleton. “The pirates must be jamming our radio and they probably put that sandbar near the island to trap boats like ours.”

Ducky said, “Why does it have to be CATS? I hate CATS!”

“Except for kittens”, Ted reminded him.

As they listened to the cat pirates, they found out that their leader, Captain One Mitten, was aware of their boat. He had sent his first mate to check on the boat, but he returned saying that no one was on the ship and there was no treasure – only a few sandwiches. Both pirates agreed that they were hungry and went down to the boat to eat Ducky, Pembleton, and the little guys’ sandwiches.

Meanwhile, Ducky said, “Now’s our chance to find out what they are doing here.” Pembleton added, “Maybe we can disable their radio jammer.”

"Arrr... what kinda sandwiches, thee be?" -Captain One Mitten exclaimed.

Part 3 Sand Bar! Full Steam Ahead! Ducky’s Mediterranean Cruise

Pembleton, the Captain of the USS DtPb, searched his maps high and low for the best island or beach to have a picnic on. He was very careful to check his nautical maps and equipment to make sure he was sailing the proper channels.

However, he was SHOCKED when they pulled into what he thought was a safe bay, but turned out to have a hidden sandbar that was not on his maps! Their ship was stuck in the sand, just below the waterline. He tried to reverse the engine, but it was no use! In fact the engine started smoking!

Pembleton tried to call for help using his radio, but the signal was jammed. The only thing left to do was to take their life raft to shore and try to find help or at least eat their lunch.

"Oh No!!! We're stuck!" Ducky cried, "SOS! SOS!"

“Oh No!!! We’re stuck!” Ducky cried, “SOS! SOS!”

Ducky has been enjoying the food in Israel. He has been trying new things every day, but Pembleton has been a little less adventurous. Today, Pembleton bumped into Ducky during lunchtime. Ducky was holding a huge stuff sandwich with little balls, cabbage, tomatoes, and onions inside.

“What’s that Ducky? It looks tasty.”

“Yumm, Yumm, It’s falafel! Do you want some?”

“Umm, I don’t know, what’s falafel?”

“Fried goodness. It’s made of chickpeas that are mashed, seasoned and fried. Then it is stuffed into a yummy pita with hummas and veggies.”

“What’s hummas?”

“Stop asking questions, just eat!” Ducky shouted as he passed Pembleton his enormous sandwich.

After taking a small bite, Pembleton, took another, and another. “Wow, that’s pretty tasty. I like it.”

“Good, now get your own!”

Eating Falafel

“Ducky, what’s that? It looks tasty.”

Ducky and Pembleton were called in to rescue a rat that had gotten stuck in the wall after feasting on too many holiday goodies. When Ducky and Pembleton got to the house they found two legs and a rat tail sticking out of the wall.

Ducky went and got the butter to lubricate the rat. Several sticks of butter later, they managed to pull the rat out of the hole by his tail. They all agreed that the rat needed to find a home with a larger front door, so Ducky arranged for the rat to stay with a family of Opossums until he could find a new place.

"Butter makes it better!

“Butter makes it better!

Last night Ducky and Pembleton saw a light in the forest. They were worried that it might be a forest fire so they decided to investigate. When they got a little closer they found that the light was actually a campfire and at that camp fire sat an old tortoise with a large gold medal around his neck.

Ducky said to the tortoise, “I’m Ducky and this is my brother Pembleton. Who are you and what are you doing camping out here by yourself?”

The tortoise replied, “I’m Lionheart, the bravest tortoise in the world, and I’ve come here seeking adventure. Have I ever told you about the time that I saved three possums from being eaten by a ferocious feline?”

Ducky and Pembleton thought it was strange that the Lionheart started telling them a story like they were old friends, but the story was exciting and full of danger, so they quietly listened both wondering where Lionheart had earned his medal.At the end of Lionheart’s story, Ted and Blizzard showed up wondering what was taking so long. Ducky introduced them to Lionheart, and Ted asked Lionheart the question that was on everyone’s mind, “Where did you get that medal?”

Lionheart leaned closer and squinted one eye, “Now that is a really interesting story. I received this medal for saving a queen bee from a clan of evil wasps while traveling through the Australian outback.” Everyone listened as the tale unfolded. It was a thrilling tail of mystery and danger and it ended with Lionheart receiving a gold metal from the worker bees for saving their beloved queen.

When the story was over, the first rays of morning light were peaking behind the bushes, and Pembleton said that it was time for everyone to get to bed. Ducky, Pembleton, Ted, and Blizzard reluctantly headed back to the house, while Lionheart stayed behind to sleep near his campfire. Their dreams were filled with swashbuckling and adventure.

They may have been faster than me, but I was smarter than them.

“They may have been faster than me, but I was smarter than them.” Said Lionheart.

Ducky and the gang finished their East coast road trip yesterday as they drove through Washington D.C., Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, and finally to New York! This was their least favorite part of the trip. They were tired and grumpy. While Pembleton, Blizzard and Ted were comfortable with the the cold temperature, Ducky was not! But now that they are in New York and have had some rest, they are ready for more adventures!

Over the holidays we have been very busy! Ducky and the gang have seen parts of the United States they have only read about or seen on T.V. It has been a very exciting adventure for them. After spending some time in Florida, they traveled up the east coast visiting Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia. They spent their New Years celebrating in our nations capitol Washington DC!

Ducky and the gang would like to wish everyone HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2012 was a totally wicked year,

but 2013 is going to be even more AWESOME!
