Tess and I took a trip to White Rock Lake to try out her 100-400mm lense;however, there was a bit of a mishap. It seems that the geese were getting overly excited about the bread being offered. They were biting at each other as they grabbed for the food and then nearly took off poor Tess’s “dirty” finger, as she calls it… you know, her middle finger!
So she is horrified looking at her bloody finger and I am laughing my butt off! Who knew that geese have teeth? (Well, not really!)
And then the question arises… do we wrap her finger in a bandage and show up in the emergency room where her husband works with “the goose bit my finger” story? He would probably not claim to know these crazy women!
Another day I took my special friend Lucy to the lake and thought she too would like to feed the birds. I sat her on a log and gave her a hot dog bun to hold. Due to the wind gusts that day, I put a scarf on her head so her hair would not blow off and float “out to sea”. She sat very still just waiting for the birds to get the bread. Now this is the remarkable thing. Those geese, ducks, and coots would come right up to me and take the bread out of my hand but they were actually a bit afraid of Miss Lucy!! Go figure!
And then once again… another mishap. Lucy fell and broke her wrist! I wanted to take her to the hospital to get it checked but I didn’t think they would have much patience for that!!!
