Bye Bye Muffin

Sad to say that Muffin the Goose passed away last month. Today I thought of her as I tossed out fruit scraps, melon rinds and melon seeds. Normally I would have given them to her. She had a long life. Can't say it was the happiest life as she spent the last few years alone after her mate died. I suppose the chickens kept her company, they didn't show up until a couple of days after her mate died. I do remember the oddest look in her eyes when some frightened chicks ran under her to hide; she looked terrified that she might step on one of them and gave me a look that said help...
