Can anyone help me with Rubber Duck's Jig? I have two cribs, neither of
them original, and they don't agree.

First set of instructions:
bars 1 - 8 3C petronella turns to R and set; repeat that to finish
on opp sides.
meanwhile
2C and 4C set and petronella turn to the right to
the next corner position; repeat
to finish in the other couple's position, on opp
sides.
1C and 5C set and cross over by the R.

Second set:
bars 1 - 8 3C petronella turn to R and turn 3/4 by R; repeat that to
finish back in own place.
meanwhile
same as above.

In this case, second set seems to work better, because 3C is turning in
the middle while others are petronella turning to next place.

First set:
bars 9 -16 3C set twice, turn by L once round and a bit more ready to
.........
meanwhile
1C with 4C and 2C with 5C, dance RH across once
round, then chase CW 1/2 way round
the set; finish on own sides, 1 & 5C in eachothers
places, 2 & 4C in original places.

17-24 3W with 2C, 3M with 3C dance L shoulder reels of three
across the dance.

Second set:
bars 9 -16 3C set twice, turn by L 1-3/4 ready to .........
meanwhile
same as above

17-24 3W with 4C, 3M with 2C dance L shoulder reels of three
across the dance.

This time, first set works better, because 3C finish on their own sides
at the end of the reel.

The first set of instructions is from a dance program; the second set
is from my memory, written down fairly soon after I danced it. But that
was several years ago and now I don't remember.

Thanks,
