Geese drop unwanted calling cards at the Sartors
Yard work will be put on hold until another day. The ground is thirsting for a drink.
Every thing looked nice yesterday, but when I placed some outgoing mail in the box this morning, I found the calling cards of what must have been a sizable gaggle of geese on the cement drive and on the sidewalk, as well. We have a real problem here. My family and I raised many domestic geese and waded through everything in the country. Here I do not mind seeing the wild geese and mallards, crows and the hawk if they would stay in the yard of the lady who throws out sacks of grain and stale bread on a regular basis. Will I ruin her day? No!
Listening to the honking of the geese, the quacking of the mallards and the music of the crows, including band practice at the school sometimes I feel a little like I am going to go batty. When that is over I pick up something that is just about as annoying, if not worse. The phone does not ring much here, but the buzzing in my ears is maddening. I have been informed Tinnitus can be caused by several reasons, that may or may not be of health concern; others say the noise can be silenced. Paul took a look in both of my ears and reported; there is nothing in my head. He let the light shine through. Imagine that! I think after being together 60 years, it’s too late to send him back where he came from now.
I can’t take him anywhere. We were walking down a crowded aisle at Walmart. Paul was walking rather slowly, allowing his cane to help him move along. Two equally chatty women, both Walmart associates, passed by him. Something must have tickled the girls funny bones, because one let out a loud squeal directly within earshot of my jumpy better-half. The chatty old boy let out a yelp and all but went airborne. Those two associates were not expecting that to happen, but it did spook him. They apologized several times but they could not contain the laughter and neither could we, including the red-faced guy leaning on the cart. That exchange with him was like, where is our camera when we need it?
It is a good thing she did not touch that silly goose’s back. The janitorial crew would be bringing out the buckets and a mop to prepare for rain coming through the roof and possibly water on the floor!
We had a wonderful time with family today, welcomed the outing and look forward to next time. Now it is time to check on the kids. Did I tell you our little canine girl, Tootie Mae, is jumpy too?
