While in Minnesota for Christmas, we stopped off in Rochester. Down by the lake they have geese. Lots of geese.

In fact, if you look closely at the picture, you can see that it’s geese all the way back to the horizon. Thousands and thousands of them. Like a Hitchcock movie. And oh, the honking…

I realize that they can be a problem, but I still find them amusing.

Also on the subject of Minnesota, someone has started making army worm wine. You take a few pounds of army worms, which are in plentiful supply in northen Minnesota in summer, and you mash ’em down and make wine with ’em.

(I can’t remember whether we ever posted the photos of Ely covered in army worm silk…)
