Pembleton finally agreed to let Ducky strap on his skis and hop out into the water. Ducky is a very good swimmer. For some reason floating comes naturally to his round body. Ted and Blizzard hooked up the cord so that Ducky could hold on as the boat cruised through the water.

Shortly after Pembleton pushed the throttle forward a pod of dolphins joined Ducky as he road the waves. Ted and Blizzard were bouncing up and down waving to the dolphins. Then the dolphins started jumping out of the water and waving their flippers back at the little guys. One dolphin even did a flip out of the water.

When Ducky road over an especially large wave he sailed clear out of the water. The next time a wave came he headed straight for it on purpose. Ducky kept trying to go higher and higher until at one point a splashed out of control losing the cord attached to the boat. When Pembleton turned the boat around to check on him, Ducky came up spitting out water and laughing. The dolphins even helped Ducky get back on to the boat.

Next on their agenda, Ducky, Pembleton, and the little guys needed to find a small island to have a picnic on.

Whaa Whoo! Faster! Faster!

Part 1 Ducky’s Mediterranean Cruise

Ducky and the gang recently went on a Mediterranean Cruise off the coast of Haifa, Israel. They took Pembleton’s new boat, the “USS DtPb,” for a short cruise around Haifa bay.

There was a slight breeze and the sun kept them nice and warm. The weather was perfect for a day out at sea.

Ted and Blizzard had heard that a pod of dolphins often liked to play nearby. They hoped they would be able to see them and maybe even see them do a trick or two.

Ducky was excited, when Pembleton told him the water would be calm today, with the occasional wave. It was perfect for some tubing or water skiing. Shortly after leaving the harbor, Ducky asked, “Is it time to get out my water skis?”

"Full Steam Ahead!"

“Full Steam Ahead!”

“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!

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.”

To quote Ducky, “Today was TOTALLY WICKEDDDD!!!!” The whole family went to the Houston Zoo to visit the animals. Pembleton is a volunteer, which means we get to see all the behind the scene stuff! We got to paint with the elephants, swing in the monkey cages, help the rhinos with their mud bath, and give the bears a back scratch. Everyone was having so much fun, until we got to the lion exhibit.

As Pembleton came out with the lions’ snacks, he was horrified to see Ducky saddling up Jonathan, the male lion, to ride! Before Pembleton could do anything, Ducky hopped on and shouted “Tally Ho.” After bucking around for a few minutes and feeling rather sick, Ducky was ready to get down. However, he had no idea how and Jonathan was looking rather angry. Pembleton knew one way to calm down the giant cat. He reached in to his bucket of snacks and tossed over a PB&J. While the cat was distracted, Pembleton used a net to snag Ducky and move him to safety.  Pembleton was very angry at Ducky for breaking the rules (Pembleton hates when people or animals break the rules).

After “the incident” Ducky was no longer invited behind the scenes. Pouting, Ducky went for a swim around Duck Lake and forgot all his troubles. It truly was a “TOTALLY WICKED” day!
