water ballet, duckling style.


"All right, duckies, lets get those tails in the air!"


 "Harriet, you're falling behind a bit. You have to paddle like mad to get the right form!"


"Now you're just being silly. Alfred, stop spitting at the girls!"


"Bravo, you've done it! Won't your mummies and daddies be proud!"


"Well, it's a yes for me, how about you, Fred? Should we let 'em pass to the next round?"


(You really ought to click on the photos to see the close-up of Alfred spitting at the girls.)

This is delightful, Leslie! I'm sorry I didn't check in sooner and see it! Funny!
Speaking about our daily swim in the chronic pool, I've been getting dunked a lot lately--how about you--I sense perhaps that you are too? Praying for you--for us.

I do hope that Fred passes them. It might be little Alfred's dream to be in the ballet.
