today there were families of canadian geese with their fleecy babies and i wanted just DESPERATELY to tickle a sweet baby geeseleing so i tiptoed up to a family and mother goose hissed at me….so i rolled up and averted my eyes and stepped away and looked at her and she hisses again….so i stepped a little further away and this time she was ok with it. she just gave me a very bold look to let me know whose the boss. the babies made the sweetest little peepling and i made that sound back to them. that they should know was a freindly sort of thing. after a while the mother geese had become quite tolerant of me. they let their young,geese tots come quite close to me.
