12:20:2002 Entry: "Ann : Big Honkers"
Yesterday someone put out some hastily done signs across the street which read "Bread not Bombs" and "No War" and "Honk if You Support Peace." I understand the point they were trying to make, but the irony is, shouldn't it be "Honk if You Support War?" Shouldn't supporting peace be made more peacefully?
The really strange thing is that in the middle of the night last night I heard a couple of flocks of geese flying by, honking. It was most surreal, as the only time I am aware of honking geese flying is in the fall when they fly south in Vs, and then they're high in the sky and sound distant. I've never heard geese at night, nor in the spring, nor at such a low altitude. It was most ominous.
Too strange! *lol* I bet the geese would prefer the bread too! heheheeeee

These things you´re noticing are really great! I didn´t even know geese are "honking".

It just goes to show you how much wiser geese are than humans when it comes to political issues. ;)
'Course, they're not really very friendly animals. Once a goose bit my boyfriend's pant leg to hold him still, then proceeded to beat his leg with its wing (the boney part that I guess would correspond to our shoulder). They're awfully mean for the peaceful sort...

Yup...gotta give credit to the geese.
I heard them again the night after that too...but not in the last day or two.
