Toward the end of my hike yesterday I heard the strident honking of nearby geese and pulled out my camera to see if I could catch their flight. I snapped frantically, then stopped, sad that I had missed not only the flight but their whimsical landing. Three of them left beautifully synchronized sprays and looked as if they had planned a celebratory waterskiing finish. Later, when I developed the film, I found this picture and cropped it to share with you. Look. I got it after all, or at least the beginning of it. If I remember right the spray trails were much larger and more impressive, but see how they are actually skidding over the pond surface?

As you might recall, since I gripe about it every now and then, I'm still on a diet. Although this delicacy was bound to sky rocket the calorie count for the day, I had to taste it, at least.
That was a dire mistake. After two bitty bites I felt like I was a deprived soul in a world based on sugar and moist, delectable crumbs with a hints of strawberry paradise. But--you will be proud of me--I resisted. No, not with it sitting there in front of me; I fled the rest of the festivities and came home to my quiet house. Some temptations you just have to flee.
