That's a Whole Bunch of Geeses

I thought that the ducks and geese and swans were all smart enough to get south escaping the tundra before our own little piece of hell froze over. Well I have photos of some real birdbrains. It was -6* this morning when Babe decided it was time for me to get up. The lake is rapidly icing over and there on the fringes were 1000's of geeses (gooses?) with a few swans and ducks thrown in for good measure. All the black spots on the edge of the ice are fowl, birds too dumb to get into the air and on their way to Texas.

I'll switch places with them? Hmmmm..... that could make me a bird-brain yes indeedy.

Dang Mr. Flannery...that's cold and a lot of snow. Does Babe have a snow suit? Why am I not there? I have the perfect pair of boots to leave my foot prints riiiigggghhhhhttttt along the edge of the lake. And - I think it's just begging for a snow angel...

Whew! So glad you're urging them to Texas ~ we have plenty of geeses that hang around here year round.

Although it's a beautiful sight, I think I'll endure our temps in the 40s-60s ~ just cool enough for me to light a fire and be cozy but not so cool that I might have hair raising rides like you!

RNC - Babe is originally from Labrador. He's got built in snow shoes and a fur coat made for freezing water. He likes the snow alot. We got room for snow angels anywhere ya want and an open invitation for any red necks headin' north.

Send 'em on down, my step-son has a pond with no geeses! Maybe you could advertise his address up there!
You and Babe try to stay warm,

OOooooh, four calling birds three french hen and two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree. Sorry, I couldn't help myself. This Ozarks farm chick is freezin' her tootsies off in the hills and hollers of the Ponderosa. Not a winter gal!

After a fowl start I hope you have a wonderfully blessed day! Heeeheeehe!

Brrr! Listen here. I am south. And I've been cold all week. The snow would at least make it a little more pleasant, I think. ~Mindy

I bet they went all the way to Monticello today

The trumpeters came low across 94 yesterday and probably scared the 18 wheelers - they are giants
