Good Luck!

One day last week, I went over to my son Jim's house, and in passing, saw this: 

These birds were laying by a large pond on a farm.  There were cows farther up the hill, which is actually more gently rolling than it appears to be here. 

A few days later, they were up by the road. 

Every. Single. Picture. Was. Blurred. 

Arrghhhh.   I had Jester in the front seat with me, sometimes it happens. 

So today, I was glad to see them again.  They were back across the pond... 
they are not domestic geese, but snow geese and blue geese, the 
Canada/Snow cross. 

As I came back home... 

They were a little closer. 

Aren't they beautiful? 

I'm guessing they have decided to stay on this pond for some reason. 

Here's a closer look at two of the blues. 

Up, Periscope 

There was one Canadian goose in evidence... and yes, it's blurry. 

I am still using the broken camera but I am also still having fun with it, and 
happier and happier with my manual settings. 

You haven't seen Keith in a while... we actually sat and talked at lunch today, instead of being on the run.  I had to cut the yard, which I started right after he finished his sandwich and went out for a while. 

He has lost 14 pounds in the last few weeks, on a quest for 40 pounds! 

We are expecting thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon... real spring weather has started in Kansas! 


  1. Tell Keith "CONGRATULATIONS" on his weight loss. I know it isn't easy.

  2. Beautiful photos!
    And Keith looks so good,,,, he looks like a teenager..! Good job on loosing 14 pounds.

  3. You must be getting the same storms that we are getting today.

    Yeah Keith! Good job, that's 14 is part of the 20 I need to lose.

    There have been geese across the street from the park where my friend and I are walking now. I don't know how long they will stay.

  4. I love the pictures blurry or not. You are the first I've heard to cut grass this Spring. Ours is green and growing but doesn't need mowed yet. Once you start, it doesn't stop for a long time. Due to the mild fall we had, It was practically November last year when we finally stopped.

  5. Lovely birds! We only have Canadian geese around here, but I love to watch them waddle around ;-)

    We'll take any rain we can get here. Obviously, the wildfire areas won't object, either!

  6. You take real good goose pictures, I am waiting though on a cat picture. Tell Keith Hi from me.

  7. Our mom cusses her blurred photos. Do you do any photo editing? Mom uses Paint Shop and discovered after sharpening a photo to use "Unsharp mask" will usually even make it look better. Love the up-periscope BOL!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!
