NEW MILFORD CT NEWS FLASH... The Great Housatonic Duck Race is ON this Monday, May 30th, 2011!
We have not had a successful run over the past 2 years so I decided to hire a professional trainer to get my duck in shape to win! From all reports, he should do very well in the race this year. The first year my duck was just not strong enough to pull ahead of the pack. Last year he had no focus, he saw some chicky who bat her eyes at him, he allowed himself to be distracted, the race was lost. All our dreams floated down river...
This year will be different, very very different.
I am very grateful to Steven "King of the House" Smith for suggesting to me that Nutsy S. Wallenda was available to help. Nutsy has won many a swimming competition in his life. I understand if it weren't for his dedication to his chosen profession (home inspections) he would have gone on to join the Olympic Swim Team. I packed up my duckie and off to Bellingham Washington he went for a year of intense training with the best of the best. I can't thank Steven enough for allowing Nutsy the time off needed to train my duck, and of course I can't thank Nutsy enough... what a guy that Nutsy is.
Memorial Day, Monday May 30th, Young's Field, after the parade!
