“it takes two people to cut you to the heart: an enemy to slander you and a friend to tell you what the enemy said.”
Monica Ferris, Framed in Lace

“Did you know it was from up here they got the word sitting duck? It comes because commercial hunters used to take a live wild duck and put a collar on it and fasten it to a stool—this is also where they got the expression stool pigeon, because they did the same thing with a wild dove—lots of folks couldn’t tell the difference between a pigeon and a dove. They’d put the duck out at the edge of a marsh an’ when the big flocks go over, the fastened-down duck would call and the others would come in for a landing and get shot. Or a dove stuck out in a field would call its friends to help. They used to send barrels full of ducks and pigeons and geese to Chicago restaurants.”
Monica Ferris, Buttons and Bones

Monica Ferris, Darned if You Do
