Canadian Goose Fly-in Diner
Now open for business.
And their business is very good–booming in fact. First there were 4 or 5. Now you can add a zero or two. The owners (land contract, I’m sure) have added more territory. It’s spreading like this darn flu bug.
Not that the residents in my neighborhood like this new business in our front yard. After all, the customers have absolutely no concern about where or who see them squabbling, pecking at each other, napping in their serving platters, pooping on their tables.
I mean really…
The first day business was slow. Maybe the few remaining patches of ice kept the less hardy flyers from dropping in and skidding into the diner. But by day 3? The word had spread. Business tripled and the noise has also.
Sundown doesn’t stop these long-necked die hards. They plan to be first in line for landing early for breakfast so they’re camping out on the lake. And they gossip loudly all night.
Where are the goose police when tired neighbors make their SOS calls?
Not around here.
Actually, I’ve always appreciated seeing flocks of Canadian geese flying north in Spring. But proximity is NOT breeding stronger admiration. Stronger disgust maybe. Especially when I consider what these gossipy poop producing, feathered diners are doing to our lakeshore grass and beach.
I’ll be sure to provide an update come late spring.
Finally, I must apologize for being AWOL lately. A couple days after Christmas I came down with a nasty bug which was really laid me low, listless and barely moving most of the time. Thus I’ve had the time to watch the geese at the new diner.
Fortunately, I’d prepared a post for a guest spot on another blog before I got sick. It’s called Friday Quickies and it is. If you’ve ever wanted to learn a few fun/odd facts about me, check it out here. It will be up for a few days: Friday Quickies
So folks, wish me luck this week as I continue working on Book 3 of Soul String. Book 2 will be available this week.
Aren’t you glad I’m baaack?Explore posts in the same categories: January comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
