I know...they are messy and there are far too many of them and they literally ruin our yard and gardens...and yet...when the babies make their first appearance in the yard by the pond...it is always a most precious and beautiful sight. We swear that these babies are descendants of one single pair of geese that reigned over our pond when we first built our house here. I named the geese Edgar and Jemima...noble names for these lovely creatures. Their first set of babies would run to me and take bread from my hands...we filmed them, we watched over them...we worried about them. It was our first people to geese experience. Even in the fall when the pond fills up with geese...it always seems that there is a pair or two that seem to know us...they venture further into the yard...they try to shoe invader geese away...they appear to look as us fondly. A forged relationship between us that I really do treasure. Welcome to the world, babies!!!

Briefly...Flavia's father asks her to stay at home to help her aunt sort through some papers. Flavia responds that she just can't...she has other things to attend to. Her father then tells Flavia that she is just not very responsible. Flavia replies by stating that she totally agrees with her father in this assessment of that part of her personality but adds this..."Being irresponsible is one of my favorite things about myself".
No wonder I identify so strongly with Flavia!!! I do so love being irresponsible sometimes!!!

I am excited to discover the author Andrew Taylor. The books I want to read first by him are called The Roth Trilogy. I have Bleeding Heart Square on my Kindle but it is as yet unread. This trilogy is not on Kindle...boo hoo hoo...so I will have to relearn how to turn pages...a lost art for me.
