On hot summer days, Ted likes to sneak away with an ice cream cone and daydream with a good book. How do you like to spend your summer days?

Ted sits under a tree reading a comic book, day dreaming, and eating ice cream.

Mmmm… peanut butter bear tracks!

Lately, Blizzard has been having trouble at school. He’s had his nose literally stuck in his books and he is bumping into walls and his classmates. The problem was so bad that his teacher called for a parent-teacher conference with Pembleton.

After an appointment with an optometrist, Blizzard got a new pair of glasses.  For days, Blizzard walked around with his mouth hanging open saying, “Wow! So that’s what that looks like!”

"Whoo, that's what that looks like!"

“Wow, so that’s what that looks like!”

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!

Blizzard's Midnight Snack.

Blizzard’s Midnight Snack.

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.

Ducky's Business Tip # 3

“Networking is the key to a successful business!”

Tip # 3

Networking is the key to a successful business!

Ducky makes most of his business deals through his relationships with other animals. For example, Ducky was introduced to Christmas Koala by the Lambs, and when Ducky was in India searching for the perfect rice pudding (The Quest for the Perfect Kheer) he was able to convince the baby elephant to give him a ride because the baby elephant also knew Christmas Koala. Pembleton introduced Ducky to Potbelly Phil (a decision which Pembleton still regrets), and Potbelly Phil was the animal that called in a request to rescue the racoons from a tree during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

Every animal Ducky meets is a potential business customer, and the more happy customers that Ducky has, the more animals will come to him for future business. That is why networking is the key to a successful business.

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?

Help Ducky, by leaving your ideas in the comment section below!

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.

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!”

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.
