Poor geese

Today is the last day of Canada goose hunting season in Maryland, and also the end of duck season. Yay! I don't particularly object to people hunting geese as long as they eat them, since they are certainly abundant here, but I get uneasy when I'm cycling along alone down country backroads and I hear lots of gunfire fairly close by. That makes me quite nervous.

I'm glad that my bike Buttercup is day-glo yellow.

Gosh does that sound familiar... the gun shots off in the distance thing. One of my rides (the 26 miler) takes me past a shooting range. One day when I passed a lone gunman was firing a semi-automatic rifle into the range from the roadway where I was biking. Scared the you know what out of me.
