Goose Lake
Ya know, the nine baby geese were incredibly cute, and I gushed about them here at least two times. The subsequent family with 3 new goslings were also adorable, and I enjoyed checking them out as well. I'm definitely not sorry the babies were here!

Still, when all those babies grow up to be the same size as their parents, that results in a whole lot of geese. 9 + 2 + 3 + 2, plus (since I think they're teenagers now in goose-years) they probably often have friends over. So we're looking at 16+ geese strutting around the office building. Fortunately they mostly keep to the pond and empty lot across the street, but it still sometimes feels like the access road is swarming with our feathered friends.

Hopefully after they fly south for the winter, some of them will return elsewhere. I'd rather they didn't all decide to start new families here next spring!

They are! They cheered me up each morning, back when they were still babies.

They're cute, then they shit all the grass, the sidewalks and your windshield.

When they fly south, they're probably coming your way!

But the foie gras can be good if they're force feed!

The Trick

The trick with goose is slow cook it and soak it over night to get rid of the gamey taste. If you do that goose is heaven in your mouth!

16 little geese went out one day
....over the hills and far away.
Mother Goose said "Quack! Quack! Quack! Quack!"...
