But I found this photo on my camera roll and wanted to reminisce. Chilly days, long nights, ice, and fires in the fireplace to look forward and enjoy until it comes back again.
We have a lot of geese. I mean a lot. I actually don’t know how many we have any more. There are more than twenty and, I’m reasonably certain, less than fifty. Emily (commander of the Goose Army) knows exactly how many. She knows them all by name and she knows all the little details about them and their individual personalities. As for me, I just know the swarming mass of feathers and honks is ever present here. I do always stop when I am passing by with a bucket of feed to offer tribute to the goosey marauders and talk to them about the weather and what not… But even after all these years, we are not really on a first-name basis. No matter. The Goose Army is a fixture here at LCN – and I would not have it any other way.
The long summer drought has dried up our pond, but that didn’t stop this goose from getting in a bath today.
The morning is beautiful and our geese are relaxing in the morning sun. (And the cats are slinking in the shadows. No surprises there.)
