The post office called us this past Wednesday and told us that they had a HUGE box for us from Tennessee and to please come down to pick it up. We don't live far from the post office and dad was back in no time at all.
Dad ordered 4 Barnacle Geese! We have 2 pinioned pair of them and both pair were born this past spring so they're still under a year old. They have bracelets on their ankles - boys on the right ankle and girls on the left ankle.
Mom is saying hi to one of the goosies while she was still inside her traveling box. She's got her hat and scarf on. She'll need these in Connecticut this winter!
Our dad has always loved The Flintstones so he's going to name the geese Fred and Wilma and Barney and Betty Barnacle.
Know what? We're not exactly sure that Margaret is a SHE swan. She sure does act agressively and protective for a girl! Dauby has taken a back seat and she lets Margaret take the lead. hummmmmm
Mom and dad are thinking of changing her/his name to Chaz!
That would explain why Dauby and Margaret were so mean to Carlie, who now lives in Pennsylvania. We feel quite certain that Carlie has probably bonded with a male swan and is happy as can be. We haven't had a call from her new dad but this is what we believe.
So until next time..............
Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
