Mom carved it from a block of wood when she was about 14. She said it was a very expensive duck, as it cost her a trip to the ER at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, after putting a carving chisel through her thumb ... but that she really liked her duck. Her teacher (who gave her an A) named him "Duckie Duddle".

"No, really, Mom. It's very nice."
Maggie and I think he looks more like a baby Grebe of some sort rather than a duck, but since Mom's the one who paid the price ... a DUCK it is!
