Enlarge this, please

I want you to enlarge this till you can see it better, and just look.  We ran through the strip pits yesterday and stopped at the strip pit seen here.  I was busy capturing some butterflies at the edge of the pond and Roger had his spotter scope out checking out the birds/wildlife.  He told me to take the time and look at the will have to enlarge this to actually see what I am talking about.  I am assuming they were sleeping...they were not preening their feathers or anything.  They were just standing like this the whole time we were there.

These are some of the first we have seen come through this fall.  In fact, I don't think as many as usual hae stayed the whole summer.  I usually hear a few pass overhead here all summer long and I don't think I have heard a single one.  I am looking forward to their arrival and to hearing their honking as they fly overhead.
We had a wedding to go to this evening...ignor the 2008 on the picture.  I didn't go but had Roger take his Point and Shoot to snap a few pictures.  I would show the wedding couple but I didn't think to have him ask if they cared, so instead will show a pair I am sure don't mind.

Even though the quality of the shot isn't the greatest, I think you can see that a good time was had by all.

Do you realize I haven't seen Lorelei since Tuesday?  I have heard her though, in the background when I am talking to Sarah.  I would love to have seen what all she did at the wedding...I guess she was vocal but there was so much stuff going on that she didn't really interrupt anything. Sarah says she is completely over her congestion, and has been laughing and laughing at Keesha and Otto.

Here and at home, the least little thing distracts her when we go to feed her.  It is almost as if she looks for something else to focus on.  And Sarah says if Otto is anywhere around, Lorelei is reaching out for him.

It does look like this family had a good time.

I spent one day restoring Patty's computer. She clicked on an email she had sent that could not be delivered and was returned. She was curious as to why it wasn't delivered and clicked on the notice. Well, it was a "worm" that locked her computer and wouldn't let her do anything. When I got up the next day, she came out in her PJs and said, "My computer won't come on."

I had to reformat the hard drive and return it to the factory, new, condition. She lost everything on the computer. I feel sorry for her as it takes a lot of time to put her things back on the computer that she had saved on an external hard drive. Beware folks. If you send an email and it comes back, you should not open it.

I have not been able to get around much of late.

Those fellas were really in a deep sleep, eh? Whoa... what an amazing stance they are in to be for such a long time... I can't help but giggle when I see that! =)

I hope you can see Lorelei soon... I wish you could have been to the wedding and sorry you had to miss that...

Canadian geese are very pretty, but I like them best when they're sleeping and don't go around messing up everything!

Those snoozing geese, they travel wlith their own goose-down pillows!

I hope you are getting well enough to see that baby. It's been a long time since Tuesday! I guess the geese were all worn out from a long flight or something.

The geese sit like that here in a nearby cattle field. I saw some today. We have some that will winter here.
Lovely family shot! Sorry you weren't able to go.
Wait till Lorelei can talk to you on the phone - it's so cute but Lily won't give the phone back to her Mommy. :)

Everybody does looks happy! I'm not surprised she isn't into eating, my two year old granddaughter only just got an appetite and that's the truth.

YOu have a beautiful family :-) I think this must be a lazy time of year for geese. They just hang around preening and sleeping.
