Shadow Shot Sunday

Happy St. Patty's Day, a few days late!

Today I'm sharing a different kind of shadow shot post.
These decorated rubber duckies are entries in a contest at our community hospital in Derby, Ct.
The contest is part of a fund-raising campaign to benefit the Center for Breast Wellness, which just opened in January.
Rubber ducks are a passion of the new Center's director.
You can read more about the duckie competition here. Judging will be on Tuesday.

I'm now a patient of the Center for Breast Wellness, and the director is my surgeon. I decided to come out of the closet and blog about my experiences.
You can read about that here, and here, and hopefully I'll write more in the future. ;-)

Hope everyone's weekend is just ducky. (Sorry, had to say it!)

See lots more shadow shots each week from across the globe at our awesome Aussie friend Tracy's Hey Harriet blog.

Great post, Patti, and a great program. I'm holding good thoughts for you. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Love your "ducky" friends!!

You just "quack" me up sometimes! Sorry - just HAD to say it!

I'm glad you wished us all a ducky weekend, because that's precisely what I was thinking. I've read about your journey, and I'm hoping for all the best for you. We've all known a friend or two or more who've had the diagnosis, and it's a definite challenge. I think (and hope) writing about it on your blog will be rejuvenating and cathartic.
and your ducks are splendid! happy SSS, and I hope your weekend is grand.

Oh my goodness, Patti! I am wishing you all the best! I think your positive attitude will help you through this.

The painted duckies is a great idea for increasing awareness!

I wish that one day i got duckie friends in my dresser and also in my bath dresser. I love the decorated one.

Happy weekend, Patti!

That green duck is, well, quite different, Patti!


Of shadows an old man did sing;
He chanted in Guelph and Beijing;
The shade was his friend,
He loved it no end—
It made him feel rich as a king!
