geese, ducks, and aging hip kids.

We walked in our neighborhood, by the little park pond where wild ducks and park geese mixed and mingled. I read that the first wild snow geese arrived at Hagerman National Wildlife Reserve, a bit over an hour to our north.
These geese are always accompanied by the smaller Ross' geese, the bridesmaids of the white goose world.

The folks in the place were like aging counter-cultural boomer hip kids at Halloween reaching into a barrel full of Kit Kat bars. I was originally going to have some lunch involving something whole grain or vegan, but thought better of it. I did weaken when I saw gingerbread men in little small packets at the bakery section. I ate some, but then I read the nutritional statement about fat content and felt heartily sorry for new wrongdoing today's communion service did not erase. I stopped by a place that announced it was both Paradise and a cafe/bakery, but the line was too long. So I settled for a Which/Which sandwich. which was tasty and quick.
