Up pops Sissy! Isn't she adorable?!?! The interesting development over the last two weeks is that Sissy and Ron have bonded. Geese are one of the animals that chooses a mate for life. I checked the forums on this and it's not a hard and set rule that the ganders won't go astray, but they do have their favorite gals.
Ron likes Sissy. Oddly enough, Ron is not our biggest gander and he does bully Percy on occasion. Percy outweighs him, is larger and has an unnatural affection for me. One I hope shakes out with next springs mating........thing.
I've added a pattern to Ravelry. It's the "Butt-Cold Cowl" seen here. It's a cowl I designed a few months ago to keep me warm while doing chores. It's name comes from the line from Grandpa in Grumpy Old Men: "It's butt-cold out here and I'm fresh out of beer!"
For a mere $1.99, you too can make this cowl. Hey, I'd make it free, but I'm a college student now. Books, tuition, pencils and paper don't come free to me, and I need to pay for them.
