Babies: Geese that is.

Geese. Just what we need (not)!

We have so many geese that
I figure if the recession gets so bad that
we are starving to death; then, we can
survive by eating these things. Except
I would have to hire someone to kill
them because I could never bring myself
to do it, starving or not.

They are pests but they are also rather
regal in how they walk around and ignore
people. And people pretty much stop their
cars when they cross the streets and honor
their nests and ooh and aah when the babies
are born. Even the weed eaters are restrained
from cutting down the grass around the nests.

I was driving to our office Friday morning on a
little homemade gravel road that runs behind
the Chick-Fil-A. The tree is the only one left
from the old garden and orchard that dates from
my childhood. I saw the babies there and stopped
to photograph them from my car.

Don't ask me to do the dirty deed. I am a coward!

Macy thinks they are really cute!

And I have 3 members of the family that could take care of the killing! In fact, I have a freezer full of "mystery" meat!
Pretty funny condsidering I was a vegetarian all those years!

They are cute when they are little but that's where it ends.

I agree, they are sweet when they are young but turn into mean creatures as they mature.
