It was one of those early spring days when the air is cool and so refreshing. Maggie and I were walking on the trail. I was humming something, Maggie was sniffing something. We heard a strangled honking and a crashing and an enormous, angry goose came charging at us from out of the marsh. The goose, wings spread, breast inflated, came straight for Maggie who looked to me for help. I grabbed a stick and managed to get the goose, who now had a mouthful of Maggie's fur, to back off some and Maggie and I ran. In the wrong direction. There was only one way back to the road home and we would have to pass the goose again to get to it.

In the last photo I'm preparing to frame the painting. The beautiful frame was made by my brother in law and suits the image as well as my home. You can see the spacers that I've used to center the painting in the frame. I'll be keeping this painting although I haven't decided where exactly I'll hang it. Maggie is getting older, fourteen soon, and if you knew her you'd see that I have captured her pretty well. If I do say so. I have photos of her but this portrait and the incident are special to me.
