Hello, Me Old Duck!


 Hmmm...who's that person sitting on my patch of grass?


 You can get back in the river if you want,
I'm going to take my usual place.


 That's my mark, see,
my speculum,
It means I have the right to sit here


 I'm warning you!


 I should think so too!


That's sorted that out then.


Take care.

  13. 'Duck' as a term of endearment was very commonly used in the Midlands where I grew up. He does look pretty indignant - either at being called 'me old duck' or at you taking up the precious space.

  14. What a superb bunch of photographs. I've been trying to work out how you were lying in the grass to get some of the very best shots. Well done.

  15. My mom called us ducks, as in "Be a love, Ducks, and pass the salt."
    This made me smile.
