It's National Rubber Ducky Day - Jan 13

Yoko
 It is that time of year again....Rubber Ducky Day!  Yoko says "For some reason these yellow things make me want to take a bath!!"

This day seems to have originated in 1970, when Jim Henson performed the song “Rubber Duckie” as Ernie on Sesame Street.  The rubber duck bath toy has been an iconic American symbol ever since.

Al
 Al showed no interest whatsoever in his ducks - he would rather eat than play with them.  That sure is a funny duck on his back.

Woody
 Woody didn't want to get too close to the duck...these look more like cats?  Rubber dacks????


Snowball
Snowball warmed right up to his bright yellow friends while Only wanted to nest with his flock of cat/ducks...um dats...or cacks???  What do you call these hybrid cat and ducks??


Only

 One of the bigger ones escaped into the water bowl and Smidge cautiously checked it out.  She didn't like that thing floating in her water.  "Get it out Mom!"

Smidge
Do you have any rubber duckies?  We think every day should be rubber ducky day, don't you?

I am glad my human doesn't have any rubber duckies - or you would be seeing a photo of me posing with them and looking annoyed!

Mr. Puddy has the right idea, roast duck. You have all kinds of duckies. This was fun. Glad we had a ducky day. Take care and have a good Sunday.

I just heard about this today on YouTube from this new show - HolidayWhatTV - about holidays! This wacky, but fun, guy celebrates ALL holidays. ha! It's becoming my new fave show. Why not have a reason to celebrate every day?! That's what I'm saying.

Here's his rubber ducky video that premiered today:
