Lesson learned! He was in the land of Scrumpy, the day was sweltering, ducky was parched.
Next time he is going to ask for a long, icy cold glass of water. He is not going to look at the duck at the next table and ask, "What's that you're drinking?" and then say "Scrumpy? What's that?"
May your wings fly steady and may you have a great day.
Thanks for flying by.
Thank you Ginny :)Delete
Scrumpy can indeed be powerful. One glass is MORE than enough. Thanks for the smiles.ReplyDelete
I've never tried it Sue, my father's warning about it being very strong, was enough and set that seed in stone, even today, lol! Of course, this was a father talking to his young daughter who had just passed 21. Though I don't think they sell Scrumpy in the U.S. Not that I am a great expert on such things.Delete
So glad you think so Donna, thank you :)Delete
wings are stead, unless i bend over to fast or stand up to fast and no scrumpy needed, just normal for old peopleReplyDelete
No, don't bend over too fast Sandra, and I can relate :)Delete
I guess even ducks have to learn things the hard way...lolReplyDelete
Yes Ann, they certainly do :)Delete
Cute post and photo! Have a happy weekend.ReplyDelete

Thank you Anne :)Delete
I just saw a Rick Steves where he was drinking scrumpy! First time I'd heard of it!ReplyDelete
Now that's interesting! I used to love watching his shows. Must get back into them. Thanks for the reminder Jeanie :)Delete
Have a great and wonderful day.ReplyDelete
Thank you Red, you too :)Delete
Very adorable capture! Scratching like a dogReplyDelete
It was a pet duck who had the run of the gardens at the pub. He also had several companions. Fortunately I had a camera in my hands and was able to capture the moment :)Delete
Oh poor ducky - I hope you didn't have a second scrumpy drink!ReplyDelete
I had a cider Carol, but knew Scrumpy would not suit :)
This post did make me laugh ... many thanks.ReplyDelete
Happy weekend wishes.
All the best Jan
If it gave you a laugh then I am happy, thank you Jan. I wish you the same :)Delete
My sentiments when I first saw that little duck William :)Delete

That is sweet of you Debbie, but no apologies necessary and sending hugs. It takes me awhile to catch up also. I am having an excellent weekend thank you, and I hope you are too.Delete
Oh dear me, poor duck! :)ReplyDelete
Never fear Margaret, he’s as right as ninepence now :)Delete

We've all learned the hard way where alcohol is concerned, haha.ReplyDelete
Oh yes, one very hot day at a wonderful Mexican restaurant that had just opened comes to mind. We were out of town. I ordered a Margarita and it came in a HUGE glass. (I didn’t order a second) It didn’t taste at all alcoholic but when I got outside, well, need I say more? I haven’t had one of those cocktails in a very long time and had a lot of sympathy for our little duck here :)Delete
Denise, When I made my comment here, I hadn't yet seen my comments. Thank you for trying so hard to make a comment. I have three of yours, and several other people commented more than once thinking they had lost their first comment. My comments are moderated, but you may already know this, but since this is happening a lot these days, there maybe another explanation which I am not aware of.So sorry for the inconvenience.ReplyDelete
Thank you for letting me know. I remember and what happened was that I kept getting an error message every time I tried to publish. I did not realize it was actually publishing each one. I know of others who have had this issue. A blogger glitch that I hope will be fixed soon, along with the delay in publishing comments and some turning up in our spam folders.Delete
Fun post :)ReplyDelete
Thank you Ashok, much appreciated :)Delete
We are having a tipsy free February. Cute post!ReplyDelete
Thank you Ellen says I with a big grin :)Delete
A tall cold glass of water is always the best.ReplyDelete
Very much so :)Delete
Sweet ducky. I love ducks. I feel like something, maybe I will have hard cider. Haven't had one in a long while.ReplyDelete
Thanks Betsy, I might treat myself to one also :)Delete
