Here's Some More of Thursday's Testimony (Not Comey's; It's Still The Little Things)


Earlier today, I published a post here on Blogger that's titled Wednesday's Wisdom + Thursday's Testimony (It's The Little Things)

My reasoning for giving it this title is that I started writing the aforementioned post on Wednesday, which is the day I do my Wednesday's Wisdom series, but, I didn't publish it until today. Now, before the day's out, I'd like to share with you another testimony, which has nothing to do with the testimony James Comey gave today.

The additional testimony that I'm offering here (as part of my Thursday's Testimony series) is for the birds, and, the bird type which I'm dedicating this entry to is known as a Canadian Goose, seen in the image atop this entry.

I took the photograph last night when I was in Central Park, having a picnic with a few acquaintances. What a joy it was to see the adult Canadian Geese spending quality time with their goslings.

Neither of the goslings' parents were on their cell phone talking or texting; rather, their entire focus was on their young ones, as they made their way down a path that is near to the lake in Central Park.

Both parents just kept their eye on the birdie, as evidenced in the next set of photos.




They seemed like such a happy family out for a late spring evening stroll! And the parents took such pride in showing their off-spring out to the public as they strutted down the path!

Perhaps the parents have read Cam's book, Words In Our Beak Volume One,



and are in agreement with her assessment, "New York City is the place to be, if you're a bird," as she proclaims in her narrative.

In any event, the parents seemed to be on mission as they waddled along, while keeping a close watch on their goslings.


Then they stopped to ask each other's opinion of something.


This action was followed by them surveying their immediate surroundings — as if they were looking for a perfect spot.


And, once again, they gave each other a what-do-you-think-look.


They must've concurred; for they proceeded to continue on with their evening walk, with measured and purposeful steps.


Soon they reached a spot that caused them to pause and consider their options.


As it happens they were looking at the lake, which was over subscribed with turtles as well as other geese.


Then the parents surveyed the lake again,


and turned to their goslings as if to reassure them.




Then, suddenly they "jumped" off the rocks, into the lake, and swam in it together as a loving family.





How blessed was I to witness this event!

ADDENDUM FALL 2018:
