Wednesday, Lester was in Maddock on business.
Lester and Midge Quam took in the Devils Run Parade on Saturday.
Doris Griffin shared another story about her geese. Doris opened the barn door one morning to let everybody out. The big geese headed for the pond and one gosling was tagging behind. There is a rock in the doorway and Doris watched the gosling hesitate, deciding if it should go around the rock or over it. It decided to go over it and fell when going over the other side. It picked itself up and kept going to the pond. The point of this story is that it shows we all have decisions to make and once made, keep moving forward and don’t look back and do the best we can with that decision.
The poor misguided turkey was gone for three days, but is back and still romancing the guinea hens.
