The past few days we have had a pair of geese that have taken up residence in the pond behind our house. They have provided a lot of entertainment for us in the mornings and usually stick around until sometime in the early afternoon. We have been getting as close to them as I think we safely can and tossing pieces of bread in their direction -- maybe that's why they keep coming back!
There are some disadvantages to living farther out than a lot of our friends. But, then there are times like this that I absolutely love where we live! I hope that our new "neighbors" stick around for awhile because they have become such a fun part of our mornings.
