Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



Where Is Paris Duck?

Paris Ducks: my friend Badger wanted to know where the ducks were at in Paris, so I found a few by Googling.

From ask Google: Where are there ducks in Paris?

A) Hostel: The 3 Ducks Hostel

3 Ducks Hostel
Paris (15è - Montparnasse/Eiffel Tower Area)

This hostel has some very bad reviews! But I don't know how it compares to its competition. I'm just duck hunting!

B) A Piece of Logic from website http://mrs-nezbit.tumblr.com/post/12542916518/are-there-ducks-in-paris-or-are-they-all-pelicans

Anonymous asked:
are there ducks in paris or are they all pelicans?

Fact: Pelicans eat ducks.
Fact: French eat ducks.
Fact: French are pelicans.

C) Duck Tour d'Argent

Probably the most spectacular classical French recipe, le canard à la presse, here made at La Tour d'Argent, a Paris restaurant open since the 16h century.

Warning: -GROTESQUE- food photos

Oops, I think I failed, though, because I think he wanted to photograph the ducks.

I realize the blog post title sounds goofy, BUT its s'pposed to, because I wanted a little rhyming action going on in it.

I love duck, duck confit, Peking duck, BBQ duck almost any kind of duck. My favorite sight while driving home was looking at all the duck butts along Lake Shore Drive. We had thousands of ducks.

fmcgmccllc: I imagine ducks are slightly safer in Detroit versus the PRoC. We have quite a few migrate over us and even have a few duck ponds around our town. My older son had wedding photos shot by the duck pond at the condos out by the golf course several years ago, I just remembered that. Oh, I also recall a silly piece I wrote about four years ago hoping that the then current McDonald's restaurant renovation was going to be a duck pond installation. Searching ...

Another question:
Where DOES Paris duck?

A couple years ago a few duckhunters set up outside the GPYC, and you should have heard the outcry. No matter that it was legal, no matter the ducks were walking in the road, there was quite the uproar.

However when the ice shanty contingent came out, not a peep.

fmcgmccllc: I thought I knew what an ice shanty was, and guessed right. I told my wife what I was going to get her for Christmas, so when she is bad, I'll have a place for her to stay. She asked me, laughing, "are you going to put me out in the middle of nowhere?" and I replied, "No, I'll set it up in the backyard, and run an eXtension cord. I want you to stay warm".

I know, you're probably thinking, "how thoughtful !!!"

I figured the GP of GPYC was Grosse Pointe, then did some google stuff, so Yacht Club, I think I got it figured out now.

Friko: I'm still working on your question.
