“It’s hard to be funny when you have to be clean.” – Mae West

We spent the weekend finishing the work which we needed to do to the house to get the property onto the market.  A major part of this was the removal of a small mountain of garbage which we had accumulated.  We had contacted a local company who provide the service of rubbish removal, yet after almost a week, they had failed to contact us.  Due to this we decided that we needed to take care of this problem ourselves.   I hired a truck and we spent the majority of the day on Saturday removing the rubbish from the house.

Please excuse the mess.

The whole process took about 6 hours.  I was glad to see the end of that day.

Much nicer.

On Sunday, while I was working in the garden, I observed that my Geese were acting unusual.  One of them was sitting under a small bush in an unused section of the garden, near some compost piles.  The other two were standing nearby and were very agitated.  I fetched some food and fed them, so that I could get a closer look at them.  The one sitting down appeared to be healthy, and was eating the food with the other Geese.  I walked over to the bush which the Geese were waiting at and I was surprised by what I found.

I am going to be a Grandfather… or something.

It appears that I might be expecting some Goslings soon.  This is not the first time I have had Geese hatch eggs on my property, it is the first time that I have seen them do this, as my Geese are usually very private.
