Nope! No wooden shoes either. The shoes are tough on webbed rubber feet! Today I did spy something interesting in the window of a restaurant though: A tabletop water fountain made out of some sort of hard dough with an oval trough running through it filled with water. It had a pump to create a current in the water and the trough had four small rubber duckies in it! The side of the fountain were decorated with ceramic duckies in different hats. Alas, I didn't have a camera on me, but I will go back to get a shot of it to put up on the website later. Maybe I'll go eat there and ask about how it came to be. :-)
