When I sit down to write, I just let the goose out of the bottle. Tom Robbins.

I don't know what that means, but I don't think I put a cap on fear over at The Chorus of the Crows Don't be a goose, go check it out.

Happy Thanksgiving!

First off, that is amazing you could come up with all the goose 'idioms' [is that the right word...?] I'm lovin' it.

Your photos are super. Love the one particularly "Can't say boo to a goose"....the lighting the backdrop and all the little ones.

Thanks for sharing this weekend at I'd Rather B Birdin'.

Hi Sharon, I love your geese pics.

Believe it or not, I walked down to Lake Siri today, and all the Canadian geese were sitting on the bank. I did not say boo to them, but I did walk closer taking pics until they all started to wade into the water, and then decided that they really needed to fly to middle of the lake.

Linda said...

LOL! Sharon, the quotations are delightful and your photos are gorgeous. So nice to see so many Canada geese! :)

Great set of goose stuff! Although mentioning 'stuffing' may not be appropriate for geese!

PS: my slowness to comment and visit has been caused by a trip to an island in the Pacific!
