St. Louis Cardinals,Game 3, Duckmaster vs. Duck, and once again Just Stuff....

Ace in the hole Chris Carpenter tossed eight shutout innings in his Fall Classic debut as the Cardinals posted a 5-0 victory over the Tigers in Game 3 on Tuesday night. Jim Edmonds' two-run double put the Redbirds ahead for good as they secured a 2-1 lead in the World Series. So with that being said... here is today's Duckmaster outfit... Can't you just see us behind the plate with this on.... ;-) Looks like it will be Bonderman for the Tigers against Suppan for the Cardinals pitching tonight... all I can say is GO CARDS!!!!!!!!!!

It was decided yesterday that Turn, Mary, Anndi and I would be wearing our Duckmaster Outfits today. Anndi will be the ref and Turn, Mary and I will be the players. Below is what we are wearing....

Quick-Carve Easy Pumpkin Instructions
Need to carve a Jack o' Lantern fast? Follow these four easy steps for pumpkin perfection.
Cut a six-sided lid from the top, angling the knife so the lid won't fall in. Use a large spoon to gut the pumpkin, then scrape the wall you plan to carve to about one inch thick.
Tape or pin a paper tracing of your pattern onto the pumpkin. Mark the pattern with thumbtacks, then spread flour in the holes to make the design stand out.
To carve, use a pumpkin carving saw or a small knife, and keep the blade perpendicular to the surface. The shell gets weaker with each cut, so start at the design's center.
Soak the pumpkin, carved part down, in a tub of cold water until the flesh is firm. Then spread a thin film of petroleum jelly on the exposed edges to keep the pumpkin plump.

Yes folks there is a Manatee in the Wolf River Harbor off Mud Island. As of this post, the Manatee is still there. They have named him Manny the Memphis Manatee.... hopefully they will be able to get him back to his home soon.
From the WMC TV 5 website:

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A manatee who has made a special trip 720 miles up the Mississippi River to Memphis is attracting crowds of onlookers.
The manatee was spotted yesterday in the Wolf River harbor just north of the densely populated downtown area.
Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency officials concede they have limited experience with manatees. They are standing guard over the wayward animal, keeping tourists and boaters from getting near.
Tuesday a small crowd of spectators had gathered on a bank above the harbor, many with binoculars. Officials are waiting for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to organize a team to move the manatee out of the cold waters.
Alan Peterson, a wildlife biologist, said the manatee was showing signs of stress Tuesday and it's respiration rate was higher than they hoped.
A cold front overnight left the harbor's temperature at 65 degrees around midday, but that's a few degrees warmer than the river.
The U.S. Coast Guard has agreed to secure the harbor overnight to keep people from upsetting the animal.
And from an e-mail that I received from Duckles.... this is really priceless.

A teacher noticed that a little boy at the back of the class was squirming around, scratching his crotch, and not paying attention.
She went back to find out what was going on. He was quite embarrassed and whispered that he had just recently been circumcised and he was quite itchy.
The teacher told him to go down to the principal's office. He was to telephone his mother and ask her what he should do about it. He did it and returned to his class.
Suddenly, there was a commotion at the back of the room. She went back to investigate only to find him sitting at his desk with his penis hanging out.
"I thought I told you to call your mom!" she said "I did," he said, "And she told me that if I could stick it out till noon, she'd come and pick me up from school."

Love ya'll!

From the mind of Meribah:

Hmmm, now all you need is a black catsuit for the duck squeezer of the group! Yes, the irony of a puppy wearing a catsuit has not been lost on me! LOL
