Papa’s World – another chapter on being homeless

“THE GOOSE WHISPER”

You look out the window – and there they are – 50 to 100 strong!

“GET OUT OF MY YARD” he shouts!

And out the door he runs!

They can wreck havoc on your yard! Leave nasty deposits –

so when walking in shoes or bare feet

you can feel it as you step on it!

Carol and Mike

We moved in almost 34 or 35 years ago –

right behind them at our old home in WNY!

We were neighbors for 12 or 13 years!

Sherry and Mike

We shared many moments of laughter –

racing riding lawn mowers –

playing friendly jokes on each other –

and me trying to compete with his beautiful lawn!

Sherry driving Mike’s boat

He has his own business – starting by himself

and today his crews go nationwide!

Carol now works with him after retiring from the college scene!

Together with their son – they have built this business

into a first class operation.

They purchased this home a year ago and then the boat.

We have all gotten together at various times –

but this is the first time in WNY at the lake house.

And it is beautiful!

Long dock leads to the flags and then the house.

Friends all these years – jokes – laughing –

he will never retire –

he loves what he has started and adding to all the time.

Just like his lawn all those years ago –

not one blade of grass – out of place – no weeds –

green – manicured to perfection.
