The Oregon Coast Project

The Oregon Coast is a very special place to me. I was born on the east coast, and shortly before my brother was born my family moved to Lincoln City, where I lived until I was 4 or 5. All of my formative memories are from times on the coast, from riding my tricycle on the beach just a block from our house, to being caught in a sneaker wave and my dad sprinting into the ocean to come save me from being washed away. Every time I revisit these places I’m filled with a weird feeling of nostalgia and sadness - not because the memories I have are sad, but because this place probably won’t be around for much longer - at least not the way we’ve come to know it.

Katie Cassidy Filmography

When a Stranger Calls  (2006)


@donaldtheduckdad and @robinine-blog

I partially imagine the girls would have a slightly harder time accepting Donald than the boys accepting Daisy?

Daisy dated occasionally, but was always firm in how her potential partners treated the girls. She waited at least six months before introducing them, and she followed the policy, “You love me. You love my girls,” although she was still the parent. 

Daisy’s potential partners couldn’t match her tenacity and kind of severe personality, so most of them didn’t meet the six month mark.

May has the least conflict in meeting and accepting Donald into the fold, and she watches quietly as he interacts with the boys and Daisy. He’s actually 1000% accepting of the girls, but doesn’t know how to relate to them initially. He’s never raised girls, but he quickly finds out they’re not as difficult as they appear. He spends time with Webby after all, and Webby is always invited to their home, so she’s there almost 24/7.

June is the first to call Donald “Uncle Donald.” Up until to that point, he was referred to as Mr. Duck. Daisy is a firm believer in children showing respect, kind of old school in that way, and each of the girls call him Mr. Duck. Daisy is running late to a meeting, and June has to call home because she had some kind of accident.

Donald knows where her things are, believe it or not. Daisy tells him these things, and the kids don’t think he’s listening on to their conversations. He’s right there. He drives to school with her things. Brings them there, and when she’s slightly embarrassed, he comforts her. 

She takes her stuff, laughs, and runs off back to class, “Thanks, Uncle Donald!”

When June calls him that, it’s kind of the clarification that it’s okay to call him that since he responds happily to it. May quickly follows on board.

But April…yeah…she sticks to Mr. Duck for a while. Sharing her aunt with someone else, let alone four other people, is a huge adjustment to her, and she kind of, withdraws from Daisy and especially Donald although she gets along with the boys. 

She lowers her guard when Donald volunteers for a Chickadee outdoors project, or volunteers to drive her troupe to the supermarket for cookie selling.

“Aunt Daisy told you to do this.” She says in the back seat, in front of the others, casually…not an accusation. 

Donald admits yes, she did. A last minute dilemma at work kept her late, which normally doesn’t happen, and Daisy doesn’t like to refer to Donald with problems on the girls, but the fact that she does…shows she’s definitely warming up to him.

It isn’t until April sees Donald hustling to sell those cookies. He tries to sell most of them, and maybe, since Donald is a terrible salesman, he sells maybe a box and a half. 

But April appreciates the gesture. Three weeks later, he’s making breakfast for him, and when the kids come together to say, “Thank you, Uncle Donald,” she joins in too. ((Because April doesn’t want to be seen sentimental.))

Donald takes note of this, and gushes to it about Daisy.
