119. Theme 176 ~Matched Pair~

Did you know that when a goose gets sick, wounded or shot down, two geese drop out of formation and follow it down to help and protect it? They stay with it until it dies or is able to fly again.  Then, they launch out with another formation or catch up with the flock.  A great life lesson for all of us I think.

  1. You remind me of White’s Once and Future King, where Merlin had Arthur do duty as a goose, and when it was his turn to stand guard he stood guard for hours on end, which amazed all the other geese as they only guarded for 10 minutes – No matter what group your in – You gotta know the rules.
