Tag Archives: Homie
I cannot believe it has only been one year since the Rubber Duck met Homie on a blustery day just like today, April 18, 2011. When I posted that first part of the Rubber Duck saga I was only joking about it being a twenty part series. Little did I know that maybe a hundred posts later the story is still not finished.
To commemorate their anniversary I repost the first few chapters. Later this week will be an update of how Homie and Rubber Duck spent their day today.
Part I posted April 18th, 2011:
(This will be a twenty part series.)
Part II posted April 19th, 2011:
But first, the back story. Two lonely birds:
Solitude of the lonely Homie.
Cold, lonely, rubbery, but Patriotic!
A little stand offish at first.
But soon the connection was made and time stopped.
They’re eyes locked and Homie was in love.
“So how many children should we have?” Homie wasn’t wasting any time.
“I have a lovely nest on Milk Island.”
“You’re not listening to a word I’m saying!”
“We could make it work!”
“I am so out of here!”
“Do you think it’s safe to come out?”
But Homie came back of course and took Rubber Duck all over. The Rockport Dump, Thacher Island lighthouse, Maine, Florida, meeting Santa when he arrived in Rockport, wine tasting at Passports, Duck Confit at Duckworth’s. Then, just a few months later, things got a little weird:
Last sighting of RD was at the Spring Fling two weeks ago with rumors that she was at the Thirsty Golf contest at the DogBar last week when Joey caught her again staring at him. Flexilis anatidaephobia is the fear that a rubber duck is staring at you and Joey has got it bad.
You’re not from around here are you? (Weird looking Homies no?)
But the locals are very friendly.
Yes, beverage please.
Rubber Duck is very sad (can’t you tell by that face) that she won’t make it back to the Sunday morning GMG Mug-Up so she is drowning her sorrows. Mostly with drinks with little umbrellas.
January 18 and how many New Year’s Resolutions have you blown off already? Did you last two weeks on your diet? Have you already bought a pack of Winstons? Now is the time baby, crunch time, when the muffin top takes a beating and you resolve to stick to your resolutions in 2012. Why? So that 177 days from now you can get in a boat and paddle your not so fat butt all the way around Cape Ann.
Click here for a BlackBurn Challenge Timer. July 14 is just 177 days away. 25 weeks. Plenty of time. Or I can send Homie over to help you focus.
Rubber Duck and Homie with their very own Lobster Trap Christmas Tree all decorated:
Hey, you try decorating without opposable thumbs!
Rubber Duck: “You just crack yourself up, dontcha Homie? That’s why I stick around.”
Looks like a standard Mendelian trait of incomplete dominance of the rubber gene.
Woops, almost forgot the one ugly duckling who may grow up to be 100% Homie:
How to Goose a Duck.
Or this could be a “Caption This!” What is in the thought bubble over Rubber Duck’s head?
Sista Felicia Is Planning Our Assault On 2011 Horribles Parade Immortality with A Little Help From our Friends!
She was absolutely demolishing my wallet but thanks to the Lone Gull, GimmeSound.com and Ed Collard who have stepped up with sponsorship monies the sting is gone! We have pledges to help build from Bro-In Law Barry, Sista Felicia, Ed Collard, Jeremy Frost Construction and the kids. Paulie Walnuts will be printing up the limited run t-Shirts and Greg Harris’ Briarwood Landscaping is providing us with the trailer. I hope to see you all on the parade route or in the parking lot tailgating!
Make sure when you see the GMG Float you give a WOOT! WOOT!

I am sure this is a viral marketing video for Go Pro, but wouldn’t it be fun to teach Homie to do this over Gloucester?
Homie represents in Rio de Janeiro! Homie gets a sky high view of the beach searching for the girl from Ipanema. Maybe he’ll go down to the beach later and get a up close and personal view of the “fio dental” bikinis.
