Percy is 7


We forgot Percy's birthday is this week and were reminded it's today from the comments left on our last post. Thanks to the Cat Blogosphere for posting it for Percy.

And speaking of our last post, Sparkle called the video a goose convention. We wish we had thought of that because that is a terrific description. We have never seen that many geese in one place before. The next morning the numbers were back to normal.

Last night we learned for certain we're the reason the geese always disappear over the hill. Evidently, the guard goose sees us and/or catches our scent and honks, 3 antsy dogs and a shaky photographer headed this way. Move out! And they all march out of sight.

As we walked down the hill last night, the geese resting on the grass suddenly got up and started moving down the hill to the lake. We reached the road and since traffic was heavier than usual, we had to run across the street. Even though the geese were quite a distance away, they started running too. Wings were flapping. They were bumping into one another. Oh, how Jan wished she had a camera with her for that. Once across the road, we stopped running and the geese stopped running.

So if you missed our once in a lifetime opportunity to catch a goose "convention" on video, we're re-posting it today. Because we were far away, we suggest you press the 4 arrows to the bottom right to view this full screen.

    PS: We have a geese convention in the pond sometimes. Once there were so many Mommy couldn't count but the pond was full. Then one of them honked and off they all flew honking away and hurting my ear drums. ~Fenris

  21. Happy Birthday Sweet Percy!
    Hope you had a fun time. The humans get busy so don't worry about being late with the celebrating. Remember it isn't how you get there but who you get there with. With your wonderful family each day is filled with love.
    That was sure a lot of geese in that photo. They must have made bunches of noises. Phew! Oh what fun you could have had if Jan had just let you go and run down that hill. I bet then the camera would have picked up all of the honking that the geese like to do.
    Send me information on the blog hop. What am I missing now???!!! I am so out of touch I shall never get caught up I think.

  27. Well we are a little late, but Happy Birthday Percy. Hope you had a great day.
    Love the video. It made our Mom smile this morning. We have had a couple of geese here once in a while but never that many. That really is a convention.
    Thanks for you nice thoughts about poor Sapphire.
