Mr Ducky Goes on Holiday

Shazzerooneypoos has asked me to publish this strange tale. It seems that one of her numerous small ornaments went missing from its accustomed position on her bathroom shelf a while ago - only to re-appear a week or two later.

It was at this point that she received a mysterious email from someone calling themselves Edwood Mallard.

The email read: 

"Hello Auntie Sharon

I got a bit bored sitting on your bathroom window sill so when some nice people offered to take me on a holiday with them, I jumped at the chance. "Quacking idea!! I said.

Anyway I've had a lovely time and, although I haven't got a camera of my own, there are lots of photos which my kind hosts took to remind me of my adventures.

The photos and their captions should tell you all about the terrific time I've had and the nice new people I've met.

Quack quack
Mr Ducky

The email had numerous photographs attached; I'll repeat the captions as well.

Mr Ducky met Monsieur le Coq.
