You know what struck me first, when I saw this AMAZING photo, Frank - ? The white necks - they are perfectly interspersed between the brown ones, almost like you arranged them, on purpose!!

You are a very clever arranger and I really think this deserves a Y*.

Seriously: a great shot, well caught, very amusing - and it gives "Duck l'Orange" a whole new meaning...!! Yes please, I'd LOVE SOME!!

Ciao, Hazel

Amelia Royan on May 9, 2009

NO dear Hazel, how could you mention Duck a l'orange!!

Shhhh ... you'll frighten Donald, Daisy, Dave and Dan ... never mind Dominic, Didi, Daffy, Deirdre, Didi II, Darryl, Damien, Debbie, Diana, Dennis, Desiree, Dicky, Dilys, Dirk, Dionne, Dmitri, Dorcas, Donovan, Dorothy, Doug, Drucilla and poor Dudley.

As you see Hazel, they ALL have a name and ones you give an animal a name, YOU DON'T EAT IT.:) And this is no Canard.

When Amelia gets angry.......WOW man! Amelia, how could you forget Drogba and Deo !? :))

Didi deux......hahahaha......indeed poor Dudley....


Amelia Royan on May 11, 2009

How could I have forgotten Drogba, and of course Dagmar, who are just out of shot so you can't see their beaks :)

Hazel Coetzee on May 11, 2009

Oh dear - sorry, you guys - having offended your finer ducky feelings, I am eating Humble Pie (no it's a veggie one, no suspicious ingredients (aside, frantically) "...quick, tell the chef to hide those loose feathers..."



Frank Knaap on May 11, 2009

It's ok Hazel, but so sad for poor Dudley, he ended huis life in l'Orange.

Amelia it's a R.I.P for Dudley as you could read.....poor thing. It was his own wish !

Dagmar, did you know his wife became a moslim as well? That's the reason they are out of shot, she is wearing a burqa (also transliterated burkha, burka or burqua from Arabic: برقع‎ burqu‘) :)))


Amelia Royan on May 11, 2009

I just cannot believe that Dudley, of all ducks, could do this ..... has there been a period of mourning within the community?

I didn't know about Dagmar's wife, but now you come to mention it, wasn't she one of the characters in "The Kite Runners"?


Frank Knaap on May 12, 2009

Ow, you mean Soraya the Afghan woman, married with Amir who witnessed the rape of his loyal friend and servant Hassan Amelia? What a tragedy.......they are also here, under cover, the Taliban or worse are looking for them. That's why yhey are so restless....


Amelia Royan on May 12, 2009

Soraya is exactly the one I was thinking of Frank, and I wonder how Sohrab is getting on now - let's hope you have them all in a safe place ...

Frank Knaap on May 12, 2009

I hope Hazel doesn't get confused Amelia.

Sohrab the orphan, killed poor Dudley with a slingshot. Stange fellow Sohrab, he became a male dancer! Yes, he left this group, he had to. I fear he is now in the hands of Assef.......


Amelia Royan on May 12, 2009

But .... I thought that Sohrab got Assaf right in the eye with a sling shot ..... you mean he's still dancing? He should be flying his kite ..... Mind you, if he was the one that did poor Dudley in, he deserves Assaf ...

Frank Knaap on May 12, 2009

Still a dancer that Sohrab, Amelia, now in Kabul. In a Night-Club the "Holy-Banana", your right, he deserves not better.......he is a poppy-cock in the poppu-fields......

Frank :-))

Amelia Royan on May 12, 2009


Have you read "A Thousand Splendid Suns" as well? It is equally as good :)

The Holy Banana Club sounds quite a place - do they refuse entry if one is wearing spats and a boater?

Amelia ;-)

Frank Knaap on May 12, 2009

Also a Khaled Hosseini, yes poor Mariam, with her coldly bitter mother! "Learn this now and learn it well, my daughter: Like a compass needle that points north, a man's accusing finger always finds a woman." JECK!!!

Oh, the spats and boaters are obliged for man, for ladies it's the umbrella story.....:))


Amelia Royan on May 12, 2009

Thank goodness spats and boaters are obligatory in the Banana Club Frank - they keep barring Adrian from English pubs if he is wearing the full gear when we are out and about.

Now today is parasol weather, I have mended my camera, a small fault that required me to read instructions which were nowhere near as interesting as Khaled Hosseini I might add :)

How we can wander away from the subject of the photograph!! :)))


Frank Knaap on May 12, 2009

Ow the Photograph? Er...isn't that a side issue? Isn't the story behind the photo much more important Amelia?

For instance dear Adrian, banned from the English pubs wearing full gear........BUT on the right place??? Maybe you should tell him, to wear those spats on his boots and not around his arms? :))) And his hunting rifle?

BTW: A rifle or more is also obligatory in the Banana Club Frank - in Kabul. :)

Mauals......hahahahaha........not for mee ! Oh no...


Amelia Royan on May 15, 2009

He wears the spats to cover his embarrassment Frank :0 .... but never carries a hunting rifle ... he is a most peaceable man ... so I'm afraid the Banana Club will be out of bounds :(

José Mª Alvarez Soli… on September 12, 2009

Cua, cua, cua, cua...... :-))

Frank Knaap on September 12, 2009

I tried G-translate for Cua.....means CRAB in Vietnamese! :-))))

Thanks anyway....:-)
