Ms. Ducky said this was a serious end to her European vacation.   She was glad to visit Normandy and see where freedom was won.   She really appreciates and thanks everyone for the effort and sacrifice.   Europe is now a wonderful place to visit and Ms. Ducky and her humans had a fabulous vacation.   Remember that Ms. Ducky is a very friendly duck.    She is bringing some European duck friends to Colorado.

Great Ms. Ducky.   We know we will like all your new friends.     She hopes you all visit Europe soon.   Ms. Ducky says she will visit Ireland soon.   Wow!   We want to hear about that trip, too.   Thank you, Ms. Ducky, for sharing your vacation with the Colorado Traveling Ducks.
