Bobbie V, The “Duck Soup” Duck

1 Sep

(Hatched on June 26, 2014)

At one day old, she was given to me by famous director, John Zaritsky for his documentary about my life and other eccentrics titled, “A Different Drummer”. It was part of the 2014 Vancouver International Film Festival. On Spring 2015, it will be on TV’s Superchannel as well as on the internet http://www.superchannel.ca. (coincidentally, Bobbie I appeared with me in the movie, “Hardcore Logo” by director, Bruce McDonald.)

Bobbie V has a magic trick of making knots with her tongue, in the sink-plug chain that she plays with in her wading pool.
