"Won't you be my Quackentine?"

Society Notes

The Corgyncombe Courant
reports that the Duckies of Corgyncombe held a special Valentine Tea. They enjoyed Tasha Tudor's Welsh Breakfast Tea and a little ring cake purchased at Daisy's Bake Sale to benefit the cause of "Bringing Mummy Home". Crackers for Quackers were quickly devoured by the fashionable young duckies. The lovely Miss Dilley Dibble Dabble wore a new pink frock fashioned by Tillie Tinkham of Tillie Tinkham's Frocks and Fashions. Her outfit was topped off with sweet little bows about her neck and atop her fuzzy yellow head. Quackenbush had a special red paper hat made for the
Valentine's Day occasion, which sports one of Post Mistress Phidelia Finch's feathers tucked in the side. The instructions for making the paper hat is in the book, "Tasha Tudor's Old-Fashioned Gifts". The Corgyncombe Courant reporters have had a personal lesson in paper hat making from Tasha Tudor herself.

At the Valentine Tea, the Quacking Duckie pair were listening to Claude Debussy's "Clair de Lune" and discussing how the music was to them reminiscent of paddling and gliding on Corgi Creek. Corgi Creek and its banks are a favored place for picnics and other social events.

Quackenbush gave a red heart Valentine to Dilley Dibble Dabble and was heard quacking "Won't you be my Quackentine?"
