Thursday 27th of May 2021

We were told our geese where pilgrim geese so we named the white one Sarg, and the two we thought were girls Pepper and Sugar. Then Sarg laid an egg. Pepper and Sugar started trying to mate Sarg and their adoptive mom, Lucy. They all know their names so I couldn't change them. So we did what any sane person would do: kept Sarg's name and changed the boy's(Pepper and Sugar) to Pepper James and Sugar Ray.
