Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

The One-Legged Goose

I love this little goose who lives in a gaggle with other able-bodied geese on the banks of Scotts Creek. That sounded so Little House on the Prairie, didn’t it? Did I ever tell you I know someone who actually grew up in a sod house? But I digress.

Anyway, she hip hops along on one webbed foot and does her goose thing apparently unconcerned. Little Goose gets into the water last as the group converges for a swim, but she jumps in just the same.

I wonder how far we would swim if we didn’t know there was anything wrong with us? Maybe we could even fly…
