Is the duck head on the front so that the real ducks won't be scared?

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen.
That's splendid news, sir!

I remain yours,
Prof.Cecily


Thank you kindly.

I am pleased to say that the Duck Airship found a home in Oregon.  Now I just have to ship it.  Too bad it doesn't really fly.
Great news, I'm sure the new owner will be more than happy with their new purchase.

Many thanks.

I was thinking in terms of the fabled Horsey Horseless car:


The wooden horse head was supposed to fool skittish horses that were afraid of the new horseless carriages. Presumably, the horses would mistake the cars for carriages drawn by rumbling backfiring horses.

I was not aware of that "invention". 

Thanks.

Good sir, I remember in An American in Paris where Gene Kelly says "to an artist it's the original that counts". Do you ever miss any of the wonderful creations you have sold, or do you keep the best ones for yourself?

I really don't miss anything that I have made.  For me it is the creating that I love most.  Selling a piece allows me to, in fact requires me to make a replacement.  I have a number of pieces at home, but everything is for sale.

Thanks
