“it only happens in the movies” . Are you sure??
Monday, (Thanksgiving here in Canada) we had a bonfire breakfast (which has now become a family tradition!)
Once a month, at 6:30 AM my Mom, Aunt & Uncle, brother & his wife (and my daughter and son-in-law if they are available) join us around the fire pit to laugh, share stories, and of course have some bacon and eggs cooked over the open fire.
Anyway, yesterday, we were sitting enjoying the beautiful morning as the sun started to light the sky when the geese started to fly. We had a flock fly over head, not too far above the trees. It was beautiful. Everyone “ooh’d” and “aww’d” and commented on the beauty of the birds, the “v”, and the picture we were blessed with. Right in the middle of the “isn’t that beautiful” statement came “bang, bang, bang” as the neighbour shot at the flock.
Silence hung over our yard …
