Pinky & Blue

{random}

What can one say about Pinky and Blue? Sure they were a couple of plastic ducks living in Le Petit Village, but there has to be more to say than that. Maybe how they showed up unexpectedly, brightening up an otherwise boring and dreary day and my walk with Fifty. How they sat quietly and contently with their cheeky smiles, on that wall around the corner. Never whinging about the wind. Never complaining about the winter rain. How everyday Fifty and I would walk by and smile that they were still there, bright and cheery. They were my friends. Close friends I guess, since we saw each other  everyday. They were always there for me (well for a couple of weeks anyway) and then just as quickly as they appeared into my life they were gone. Cruelly snatched from this world (the wall anyway) before their time.

Pinky and Blue, wherever you are, 

I hope you are in a better place.

  1. Maybe they went south for the winter. Or is that geese?

  2. Now I'm sad and worried about Pinky and Blue. Maybe you should hang up some "lost" posters around Le Petit Village to see if you can find them ;(

  9. Sweet! I have little 'friends' like this on walks that come and go--but none as exotic as Pinky and Blue.

  13. Oh, I love stuff like this! I used to pass by a model of Loch Ness in a pond everyday on my way to school and it always made my commute better. Particulalry on holidays when ol' Lochy got adorned with festive hats.

    Alas, he too disappeared back into the depths of the lagoon.

  15. Fifty didn't snatch them and give them a good chawing? That's what his American cousin would do!

    Good boy Fifty!

  20. Isn't it strange how we get attached to some of the weirdest things? This was a fitting post to honor their memory.
