What is it about baby animals that makes the toughest of us go "awwww"? Canada geese are pretty common 'round here, but people were getting out of their cars, cell phones and cameras in hand, to snap pictures.
When I was little, I so wanted a pet goose. They had live babies for sale at the Seven Mile Fair in Wisconsin, near my uncle's house. But he wouldn't let me buy one, even though I had brought my own allowance with me and was told by my parents I could buy whatever I wanted at the fair. Phooey.
I have no idea what I was going to do with a goose in the suburbs, anyway.
Don't refuse to go on an occasional wild goose chase—that's what wild geese are for.
