    I didn't give you a beautiful woman award. That went around last year and I sent some out. I got in trouble for it. You deserve one, though.

    About the geese. I have a snake phobia. Imagine that living in rattlesnackland. I wasn't fond of geese - I was always the one they went after. Last year I chose geese because they keep snakes away. I have 3 outside that are loud and obnoxious. Great for when someone drives onto the property.

    They are easy to keep. As long as they're well fed and have clean water and bedding you don't have to do much else. They don't fly, but they run fast and flap those big wings of theirs. I just got 3 more goselings but will put them in a separate place, at least when they first go outside. We haven't had a single goose egg so the idea is that with 3 more the odds are in our favor.

    Have a relaxing Sonday. I'm going to church, the flea market, returning a pair of shoes too big for me, then back to the church for a creation class. It will be relaxing in it's way.

    You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!!

    "Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!"

    Again, Congratulations Beautiful!
