As I sit and review my stats to see if I’ve hit my hoped for marker (just 17 views to go, thank you all so much), a flock of some 50 geese have just flown over my head.
They were in three groups and noisy, so perhaps the young ones were saying ‘Are we there yet’ or the leader was encouraging them all to turn right.
It was indeed a sight to behold, and reminded me so much of one of my favourite films, Fly Away Home.
Not to be outdone, Rooster and Laughing Duck got the girls together for an evening chorus of ‘Anything you can do, we can do better’, and there are about 10 on the water in front of the boat. One seems to be using her beak as a rudder, and is going round in circles!
Another wonderful sight was one of the other narrow boats coming home.
Longer than us, the owner maneuvered it with ease, reversing it into his berth without so much as a ripple, twinge, or nudge to the boat alongside it.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
