Homie and Rubber Duck’s Fifth Anniversary

Five years since Rubber Duck and Homie met on that blustery day April 18, 2011. The Fifth is the wood anniversary. Homie gave Rubber Duck a carving of Homie. (Homie is a little self-centered.)

Homie would have carved it himself but he has no opposable thumbs.

The following is a repost of Homie and Rubber Duck’s First Anniversary describing that fateful hook-up five years ago today.

Homie: “You’re not from around here are you? May I show you the cove?”

Solitude of the lonely Homie.

Cold, lonely, rubbery, but Patriotic!

A little stand offish at first.

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!”

“Do you think it’s safe to come out?”

Your friends are rude 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:  But soon the connection was made and time stopped. ”  “I am so out of here!”  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.

“Coast Guard Blaine Gallagher proposes to his girlfriend, Sarah Morris, in front of Motif #1 in Rockport Harbor. Gallagher pulled his boat up behind Bearskin Neck to surprise Morris at work. When she came out to say hello, Gallagher got down on one knee and pulled out the ring in front of her friends and Gallagher’s crew.”

Thank you to the sweet couple who helped me with my stroller at the library. I could have taken the elevator but was in a big rush. The young man first asked and then took the front of the stroller, while his girlfriend held the door. Really made my day–again, thank you!!

Affection Letters- Missing Homie

R. Duck writes-

Dear Homie,

You left me and the peeps out on Milk Island while you ran off to play with your high school buds. The anniversary of our first meeting is coming up on April 18th and I hope you have sown your oats and we can get back together this spring. I am fermenting your favorite, rotting pollock guts, for you.

Yours forever,
Rubber Duck
