Spring in Oklahoma can be breathtakingly beautiful. I try to capture it in pictures, but today I'm giving you a link to Catherine's blog, because she is the woman who really does it justice. Go HERE and be impressed! Add an ocean and get rid of the tornadoes and everyone would live here.
Now, if my picture was a little clearer, you would be able to see that there are a few Canadian Geese on this little pond. We used to have Canadian Geese in Seattle. Either they are protected or no one is armed, but the Canadian Geese got out of control in Seattle. The grass in the parks was slick with goose poop and if your child was trying to feed the ducks some bread, these geese would hunt them (the children with bread, not the ducks) down and didn't take no for an answer even when the bread was gone. They became such a problem that Seattle was up in arms. What to do? Somehow they got special permission to shoot 600 of them. (Estimated to be 1% of the total Seattle geese population.) But only if they fed them to the poor. No one knows how they got these geese dispatched so quickly, but before the protesters could file the injunction, almost 300 geese had been sent to the soup kitchens. That was over 10 years ago, and the Canadian Geese have not returned. They know better! Did they come to your town?
