    About the chicken that quacks?

    I am pretty sure this question has been asked so many times over about the chicken that quacks, but before I get to asking it, I' ve have a small story to share.

    A couple of days ago my daughter and I were chatting as usual, and our conversation somehow got on the topic of MSQC, and the chicken that quacks. I turned on our TV and loaded up your YouTube channel. My daughter has never seen a MSQC video before and instantly like all of us (non-quilters and quilters) fell for that chicken that quacks. My daughter laughed and thought it was cute. She even liked the tutorial and Jenny.

    Today when I came home from work my daughter was excited about showing me her homework assignment for her Spanish III class. She has to illustrate and write in Spanish a comic strip. Guess who she is using as her main character? Yep, the chicken that quacks! She then turns to me and asks, "What is the chicken's name?" I told her that I did not know. So ladies, my question for all of you is...If you could name the chicken what would you name it?

    My daughter also wanted to know who's idea was it to use the chicken, and how did it all come about?

    Oh, and to say quack in Spanish: curandero.

    Did I also mention that my daughter informed me that one of her friends and herself were acting like five year olds in class. She said that they were making animal noises like little kids in spanish and in due process laughing their butts off so hard they were in tears.

          Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
          it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                No, Chuck stands for CHick that quacks like a dUCK.


                And I am sorry I missed hanging out with you more. I was wiped out from the heat Saturday, went back to the hotel with Jean and fell asleep.

                  I know, you were there one minute and gone the next! It was so crowded too! When 5 rolled around and the give aways were done, that town emptied out like a popped balloon! We had reservations at the Blue Sage with Peggy Anne... good thing I made those, they were full up. Someone I know came in and couldn't get a seat. Did you enjoy your Gee-Dunk bag?

                      She is 16, and we've tried, quilting is just not her thing. She loves to draw and sketch. Maybe when she is much older she might try again but I am not holding my breath on that one.

                          Very clever girl Anna. She reminds me of my older daughter. She drew a lot too. Very cool!

                            Gee dunk is the stuff you get out of vending machines... Snacks, candy, cokes, etc. When I know someone staying in a motel, I sometimes make up bags with Gee dunk in it for them to have so they don't have to buy from machines.

                            It's called Gee dunk in the Navy and I put it in bags for my friends! LOL. When Dh was commissioned, we reserved a block of rooms for our family and friends who came in... and I put "Gee-Dunk Bags" in all the rooms for them with a note attached thanking them for coming to our special event.

                              I didn't eat the apple until I was home and it was such a good apple! Sweet and extra crispy.
