A - Z Challenge: "D" is for Duck

During the month of April, I am participating in the Blogging From A to Z April 2012 Challenge, where we post everyday except for Sundays. I have decided to make flashcards for the letter of the day out of my photos, and then use the picture as a writing prompt.  I used my Thesaurus to find a bunch of words beginning with the letter "D" to use in my story.

Thank you for your visit, and please come back again tomorrow!  I'll be by to visit those who leave me comments, and also visit as many others as I can.  If you like what you see, please feel free to become my newest follower.  ~ Kathy M.

"Dreaming His Life Away"
by Kathy Matthews

Dave Duck of Drain awoke dazed and dizzy.  Dave had been having a dandy dream about daredevil dancing with his dame, Darling Debbie.

Dave decided to deal with his deluding dream, and descended down the darkened shadowed path of Drake's Landing.  He dove into the deep water with great delight, and deliberately improved his debilitating mood.

Dave and his wife Darlene were expecting ducklings in December, and he really needed to become more dependable.  No more dreaming your life away, Dave Duck, and dang it, ditch that Darling Debbie!

Following the theme of the of the alphabet, I am also featuring this out-of-print book created by a couple of Oregon ladies in 1983.  Please come back tomorrow to see the next page in the series:
