Duck, Goose, Goose

This post may not be appropriate for small children or people with heart problems. Disclaimer: contains descriptions and pictures of geese.

I gathered up my courage and went in search of the nest. [I do not have a picture of this process. Just picture me getting all big and fluffy.]

Spotted! There she is!

Her domestic partner:

Nice! This is easy.
closer still

While Jim confronts the angry goose, Marlin watches from the Jeep.

Jackpot! Isn't she gorgeous?
really too close

too close
BLARGH! Okay, I'm going! I don't even like eggs!

Annie and Carolyn predict goslings in about a week. This mom takes two short breaks a day to go for a swim and see a movie, the rest of the time she is sitting just like this. The spouse stays close and keeps a very careful watch on the surroundings; he chased away a very large blue heron who was fishing a little too closely.

We really enjoy "getting away" over here. We've made a few upgrades on the coach, and I think it's looking pretty good.

Thanks, Carolyn and Annie, for the hospitality! Before it starts looking entirely like Christmas Vacation, we'll fire up and drive it outta here.

Pin It

Her domestic partner...??? finally equal rights for animals. that pic of the house on wheels is crazy! i saw a picture of a small horse in the backseat of a car on the freeway in the funny papers one time, its insane what some people will do....(says the girl that puts diapers on her duck.....)

Well, of course you diaper your duck! Otherwise, she wouldn't be wearing any pants at all. Now, if the horse in the backseat weren't wearing diapers, that would be crazy.
