Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Goslings

That nice Canadian couple down by the pond has been really quiet lately.  Now we all know - they had quadruplets!
There's a little chunk of protected wetland down between the Sherrie's restaurant and the expressway that is just swarming with critters.  Ducks, geese, nutria and song birds come begging in the parking lot.
The parents are very protective, but used to the presence of people.  when I got too close, and didn't toss food, they bustled the babies off to the safety of the bushes.
 And on the other side of the bushes, they feel even safer so I could get slower.  Look at those downy babies!  It is certainly spring now.

    We have quite a wild goose population around here. Many of them have stopped flying south and just hang out all winter. I'm betting they were sorry this winter.

    There's one place where they're talking birth control for the birds because there are so many of them that they are ruining a perfectly lovely lake (all that poo)

    Our geese haven't even started laying eggs yet.
