Goosey, Goosey Gander...

Of all the Beatrix Potter characters,
Jemima Puddleduck is my favourite.
She is the one I identify with.
She sits on my scanner watching me blog..
Oh you silly goose!

I'm sure I too would have been totally taken in by that Wily Fox.

This morning down at the lake
the geese were sleeping on the new safety rubber at the playground
until they saw me coming..

and they hurriedly waddled over in a most friendly manner,
as if they recognised me,
a goosey sort of friend.

Of course it's all just cupboard love.

Someone's been feeding them.

Oh yes!!
Today is an exciting day.   I'm off to Auckland to hear and meet Kaffe Fasset!

  1. Wow. Kaffe Fosset. I will be there in my dreams. Wonderful sweet goose by the way.

  2. I adore Beatrix Potter, too! I envy you, your Jemima Puddleduck! The gorgeous goose with the perfect name.

    Have a lovely time in Auckland.

  3. Oh, I love Jemima Puddleduck. Wherever did she come from? She is adorable (as are the real things, hungry little ducks, aren't they?).

    Enjoy your trip to Aukland. Safe travel.

  4. I have a soft spot for geese
    My grandchildren are just learing about Peter and such....

  5. How could you fail to smile looking into Jemima's sweet face? I love the geese, Joan. Did you come prepared for the goose assault?

    Have a fabulous trip!

  6. I, too adore Jemima Puddle Duck(long-term favorite:) and always will!

  7. What fun. I've always enjoyed Jemima.

  8. When we lived in Nairobi, Kenya, we had two geese (guard geese), Sit Up and Pull Up who loved each other very much. They had lots and lots and lots of children. We left Nairobi just before we ran out of lots of friends who loved geese!
