In no time at all, le Comte des Deux Chats became the toast of the town. With his wit and charm, impeccable manners and his dashing figure, all the men wanted to be him and all the women wanted to have him. When he announced that there would be a duck hunt at his country estate, half of the court (with the exception of the King) flooded to his gate.
As the participants organized themselves with their retrievers and sappers, their trumpeters and valets, GarGar rode amongst them, looking for a special attendee. Disappointed, he finally shouted, “Has anyone seen Princess Pirouette?” Af first there was a general silence. “Has nobody seen her?” He cried. Finally, a single voice broke the uncomfortable silence. It was Tata Sous-sus, “Oh! I thought everyone knew that Her Highness abhors blood sports.”
What a strange day! So far I’ve created three posts with ducks in them. Luckily, I’ve no shortage of duck photos. Russell
