Just when you thought you read all about Julie, A Little Girl From Texas, there is more. Julie went swimming and her Grandfather said she looked like a duck paddling in the water. He called her, "Paddleduck." Paddleduck Julie also loved to jump off the diving board. Her friend Tama did belly busters. Paddleduck talks about Ashley and Kendall's mom, when she cooked her roast it looked like a log and when she fried her chicken, it looked boiled. Paddleduck tells about her summer in San Antonio, Uncle Albert's smelly feet, the family picnic and she remembers the, "Alamo." Her cousin Allison and Jean visit from New York and Ginnye, their driver, gets a speeding ticket on the way to the beach. Paddleduck sees Ms. Kandy with two men in white space suits. Honey Bees? A bird named, Ronnie, knocked on the window and said, "yee-ha". At Vicki's birthday party, someone hid onions in Kelly's hot dog and Paddleducks cupcake had a bite taken out, Rhonda had chocolate on her face. The Girl Scouts went on a trip to Busch Gardens and they rode a sweet elephant named, Alma. At the YMCA, Peggy told Darlene not to go near the alligators. See what happens when she does. Aron and Andie feed the goats they named, Dougy and Holdy. Did they see a ghost? Jessica and her dog, Baby, eating hamburgers, a snoopy cat named Little Debbie, and more. Enjoy as Paddleduck Julie shares her lively childhood stories.
