    Walter Becker of Steely Dan passed away aged 67. I’ve seen them twice in NZ, great concerts.

      That is sad. Being Jews, I had feared for their safety over the last few years. But as someone pointed out…Muslims knowing of, let alone, listening to Steely Dan! Of course, they were right. The nearest Muslims get to music is the ‘Mosque call to prayer.’ That in its self is sad. Who knows what musical talent goes to waste.

          What is sad, Corky, is that even here you can’t let go of your obsession with Muslims and use the death of someone to indulge in point-scoring.

            May I suggest a quick ‘Muslim musicians’ google ?

    Woohoo❗️ 🍾 🍻 🎩 💃🏼👏 😭 🤗 😊 👍🏼 ❗️

    Bluebelle’s got two chicks! 😍❤️❤️☘ ❗️

    I needed the binoculars to see them. She & Bluey are hiding them in the bushes & they just took them for their first baby steps to the water’s edge! Little black fluffballs with long legs n big feet going peep, peep ! Beaks aren’t even red yet !

    I feel sooo proud!! 🤗😎

        In fairness PP (nice to hear from you), Mr Corky is very knowledgeable on the culinary (Charlie Confit) front. Seriously, I would rank Corky highly here at YNZ on the Duck front. Mind you, maybe not such a great bar.

          I am afraid you have lost the protection of the Bradders clan now Mr Kane.

          Granddad Gezza !

          Baby pooks are enchanting, they look like walking powderpuffs-one small one for the head and a larger one for the body. They also look like children wearing adults’ shoes.

          Opal and Sapphire ?

            I like it, but it’s a bit high brow. The thing with Joe & Jo is you can’t tell their sex unless one gets much bigger and / or you get to see who’s on top (so to speak) in the next breeding season. So if I get their genders wrong they wont hate me becos they can’t spell! 👍🏼

              I’ll beat the drums of retreat at this point G. Except to say they are arbiters of death and destruction. Just another useless aussie import!

              And now I must away to assess the views of the peasants on the leaders debate. I bid you farewell on this one.

        Nah they’ll be ok this time I hope, c. She only had one last year, that I saw, but they got flooded out real bad. And the fluffy fullas didn’t survive. May have been cats too. This year she’s got them up in the blackberry & Bluey seems to be doing parenting with her. Ella & Elivis are more of a worry tbh, as possum says. 2 chicks successfully raised to adulthood the previous Summer. But we didn’t have nga big mutha tuna then. When it comes time for the young uns to be told they’re old enuf & it’s time leave home & find their own patch elsewhere, it’s a pretty brutal affair!

          Between the tuna, puke and the neighbours moggie those duckies are probably deceased already G

            These ain’t duckies, dinglebunny! These are pooklets!
            Try and keep up. Honestly. Typical NZF voter!
            No idea what anyone’s talking about! 😠

            Bex has had the hard word from me about not trying that on again when she ambushed Bluebelle four days ago. Both of them shat themselves! Bluebelle wasn’t execting Bex to play silly buggers, & Bex wasn’t expecting a peck in the head, wings beating with the power of fouteen windmills, and a banshee shriek louder than that of a drunk barmaid finding her bloke in flagrante delicto with the pub owner’s daughter in the ladies at midnight !

    Does anyone remember ‘Love in a fowlyard’ (or some such name)

    ‘I fell in love with a pretty little hen/I asked her once/I’ll ask her again/ (crow-crow) ‘Oh won’t you be my bride ?’ She replied ‘I’ll be yours and I’ll be true and I’ll lay lots of eggs for you/I’ll be yours for the rest of my life.’

    I remember the day and it’s not so far away/She was just another pullet in the pen (my memory fails after this)

    I do seem to remember a lot of something like ‘buck-buck-buck-buck-biddybee’.
