    Geese are wonderful critters. I know some people think of them as a nuisance, but I think they’re beautiful. We kept a pair of grey geese when I was a kid, named Josephine and Bonaparte.

    The photo pf the geese is beautiful and I loved Rosanna’s story. Her little
    sister must be quite the fisher-woman, or was she just holding up the catch
    for the photo? Hopefully her writings will continue, it is so good to read
    another person’s views on life.
