  1. Tastee!

    Most sporting small duck here in UK, and best to eat!

    We are lucky in Norfolk to have several springs on our little shoot, and they are a worthy, exciting quarry, especially when fighting at dusk!

  2. My bookplate is not as exquisite as yours, Steve. Yours is a gentle reminder that the book in question is yours to be returned and not a gift to the reader unless noted. I inscribe a simple: "Stolen from the Bookshelves of Gil Stacy" in mine. I just had a book returned from a borrower almost 20 years after the fact. Roger Rosenblatt in his hilarious essay regarding some of the most feared words in the English language is titled: "Would you mind if I borrowed this book?" thought an appropriate response would be: "Would you mind if I broke your arm?" Time magazine, April 5, 1982.
    "Never lend books, for no one ever returns them: the only books I have in my library are books that other folk have lent me."

  3. That looks really good! I see those cute little guys paddling around in trash-filled ditches…They are like the tilapia of ducks. I wonder if I could raise some in a tub in the backyard.
