6) McDuck


McDuck and I are somewhat related, his wife is my son's mother-in-law's sister. Thats sorta related isn't it? McDuck's front is a furniture store, in fact one of the reasons for our trip was to pick up a new oven we had purchased from him. Anyway he has various locations (one is an abandoned auto body shop) in which he stores furniture and his treasures. After loading the oven in our pick up ,McDuck, his property manager "Flash", Beep and I  set out to see his treasures.
