Dear (used as a form of address)
Early 19th century: from duck.
Everything here is just ducky, Ducky! Thanks for asking.
[[Is this a cheap trick, or am I just an artistic quack?]]
Being interested in many things is a blessing. It is always nice, from my perspective, when I can cross between hobbies. 3D printing and a quick photo by phone allow me to abbreviate the process of doing the word of the day this Sunday. Some of the Inkscape illustrations take quite a while to get “right”.
Everybody speaks the “local” language which is a dialect of the “official” language adopted by a country. Interestingly, the US, famous melting pot does not have an official language. I’m glad. I like English, but appreciate the polyglots using our actual language which combines elements from many other sources.
Ciao. See y’all next time…

@Algot It’s rarely used, but it’s still not surprising to hear someone say ‘Alright, Duck?’ in England haha. More of a Northern thing though.
