....a Myrtle Beach duck has a leg up on you.

This is a story.

J.J. is the adopted Muscovy Duck who, since last May, has made his home with Jennifer Tran of the Market Common Nail Spa.

J.J. sleeps like a dog, not like a duck. He just lies down and stretches out his head.

And he gets French manicures, and a bath twice a day.

Tran and her partner Justin Chapman own the Market Common Nail Spa in my neighborhood. One night last May, Tran and Chapman were feeding the ducks at the lake in Market Common when they heard the cry of a very tiny duck, which at first they thought was a swan.  It was all alone, apparently deserted by its mother, and it made its way over to Chapman's feet.

They decided they couldn't leave him alone, so they took him home, and now he's a part of the family. "Every night, I have to tuck him in, or he won't go to sleep," said Tran.

Make of this what you may, but J.J. has bonded with Jennifer and Justin, and I see him flaunting his feathers almost every time I go for a walk in my neighborhood.

OK...this isn't exactly fine art photography, but any comments are welcome. And I hope it at least makes you smile!

We stayed in Memphis TN and they had some ducks that swam in some indoor ponds and were marched ceremonially to the elevator each evening. They made quite a show of it.

Crystal, just go in the shop and tell Jennifer you want a French manicure just like J.J's! LOL!

Gerhard, I have heard of this. I think it's on YouTube. So cool that you got to see it.
