The sixth day of Christmas...

Wait. There's more!

Arnold and Amelia

  1. That is a wonderful story and what kind humans those geese have to look after them.

    1. I loved the picture of their first meeting. And it struck me that Blossom's person and Frank's people were cut from the same cloth!

    1. It was a sweet reminder that there is no such thing as a small kindness, is there? They all effect a change.

    1. It was aired on CBS's Sunday morning show. I don't often watch it. For a stretch of years I watched it every Sunday morning when Charles Oswalt hosted it. I was generally at work and it was playing in the background. It was a gentle, likable show with sweet snippets.

    1. Quite interestingly, Tim has announced his plan to go to the Smokey Mountains at the start of February. He wants to do more things besides work. I would like that as well.

    1. Do you have Canadian geese in Australia? If not, count your blessings. Unlike Canadian people, they are loud and aggressive.
