A Brief One from Doug Draper
Posted September 22nd, 2016 on Niagara At Large
Can you believe it, it’s September 22nd and the summer of 2016 – the hottest one on record for most regions of Canada and the U.S. (unless you are a climate change denier) – is officially over.
And with it goes that (actually its been gone for about three or four weeks now) is that giant yellow duck – billed as “the world’s largest rubber duck” – in the Canalside waters of Buffalo, New York.
Actually, I could not figure out what the huge yellow duck was doing there, with the old grain mills of Buffalo looming in the background but like numerous others, I had to stop and take a picture of it and here is my dumb excuse to use it here – as passing memory of a summer dominated by a nut-bar billionaire, yelling about building a wall and banning Muslims while sporting a comb over just as yellow as that duck.
So goodbye to Donald Duck and hello to pumpkin patches in the Short Hills of Niagara, and here is bidding us all a warm and peaceful Fall season.
