“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 …

we laughed at the “timing” later and Rick is a hunter and we’ll be eating one of those geese later in the year, I’m sure.. but the moment was like it was right out of the movies. I can see the movie-goers rolling on the floor laughing at the scene.
Yah, you have to pay good money to get a laugh like that!! :)

I’m getting ready to leave for a little day trip with the family this morning and went outside to take something to the truck. Just as I got to the truck a flock of geese flew overhead. They were nice and low and making a lot of noise. Made me think of your story… Anyway, have a great day.
