Hopefully... this is where we will wake up in the mornings once our house is built; and as we stood dreaming in the icy late afternoon sun, our future neighbor emerged from his stately mansion to get in on our reverie.
He has geese. And those geese have their own private bathing grounds! The Russian looked at me sideways from where he stood overlooking the rural landscape... "They'll wake you up in the mornings with all their squawking!"
Yes, I say, and they are better than bells...
Before we left, a fresh laid goose egg offered in parting. "Whip him up an omelette, Allison, and add a little cream!"
