Today, for the first time in my life, I decided to buy a couple of entries in the local Rubber Duck Race. Crescendo knows what I'm talking about (I safely assume). Boatload of ducks get dumped in the river, each one assigned a number. Ducks are $5 apiece. The first $30,000 is spent on prizes for the top 12 ducks, the rest goes to the Boys & Girls Club. Anyway, I bought two today. Figured why-the-hell-not. Maybe something good will come of it.
