One of my favorite bloggers, MooshInIndy, wrote a post about the Canadian Geese that are currently messing up her peaceful world.
Her post has inspired me to share an email that I received from my mom earlier this week. But, before hilarity ensues, let me give you a little background:
My parents live on a lake (a lake that just happens to be the last to freeze in the area and is therefore a mecca for all things Canadian Geese), and my mom's mission for the past several years has been to keep the geese out of her yard, and most importantly, her flower beds. She claims she loves nature, but she loves her garden more. I don't blame her - the geese that live on their lake are OBNOXIOUS.
For Mother's Day a couple years ago, my brother got her some "equipment" to assist her in scaring the geese. Note: she doesn't want to kill them (it's illegal!), she just wants to scare them so they jump back into the lake and out of her yard. It's also turned out to be a great way for her to get some aggression out... fyi.
Anywho, my brother and I received the following email this week. I really hope a neighbor saw this... (and took pictures!)
No more BB gun!
(PS - The goose is fine. It was just stunned. Once it came to its senses, it waddled back into the lake...)
