Feeling Goosed

There was an awful lot of gaggling going on in the adjacent field this evening as we took Maggie out for her final wee.
Being dark, we couldn’t see very much other than the deck lights and boats, but the noise!
The Canada geese should be migrating, but they seem to have lost their Travel Co-ordinator or something as there are still flocks of them here.

Meanwhile, the two Egyptian geese looked on in awe, then after their Canada cousins had passed, went back to munching on the grassy bank.

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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

  1. What a sight – uh, guess that should be sound. Got a chuckle over the “lost their Travel Coordinator”
