This is sweet and interesting…

I saw a PBS story on this “drop in center” for kids, when it first began. But this is a more personal point of view and it’s nice. He’s a fun speaker and you may enjoy it.:)

    Hearing about Randolph reminded me of the chicklets and your rubber ducks. They are one of my “door”s. I have a Welsh rubber duck here and every time I look at him I have stories in my head about how he wants to visit your ducks. We discuss the various modes of transport. He’s not keen on the idea of being parceled up but swimming across the ocean makes him worried about his “tatoos”. He’s painted with little Welsh red dragons and he’s worried about what the sun and salt will do to them. He’s called Dewi (pronounced “deh-wee”) by the way, which is short for Dafydd (pronounced a bit like “Dah-vee-th” (“th” as in “the” not “think”)), which is Welsh for David. He was named after the patron saint of Wales. 🙂

    • This is a fabulous story. I just love it. Thank you so much for telling it. 🙂 The chicklets have been so busy but I think I’m going to draw some again soon. Thank you again for letting me know about Dewi:) I agree, the trip is far too long for him to chance it. I just saw his picture on your blog. He’s wonderful. So happy looking with all of his tattoos:) ❤

        He’s very proud of his tattoos and the heritage it represents. It reminds him of home when he’s feeling homesick here in Ireland. Ireland is great but as Dorothy was taught “There’s no place like home.” 🙂

      • That’s so sweet:) There really is no place like home. He’s quite the duck. Please give him my love and say hi from all of the ducks who live with me. Thank you Quack:) ❤

        Thanks, he says “Quackolch yn quack. Quack! <3" which is Welsh-duckese for "Thank you. You too! <3" 🙂

    Thanks for sharing this. I skipped over it when I checked out TED yesterday. I’m glad I didn’t miss it. If you haven’t seen the Dave Eggers’ TED talks they are MUST SEE videos.
