Overpriced Parts /

This rarely used 1/2 mi road/alley that connects older houses to newer older houses has very mean guard gooses that will attack you (no joke) unless you’re in a car!

These suckers are still alive past 10 years and still just as nasty if you come by their area, they’re not Canadian geese who will get out your way but some kind of gray goofy, way bigger ones, how long do these things live anyway?

Google:

"The average life span for geese of all breeds seems to be in the area of about 24-25 years. That would mean that some don't live that long and that some live longer. As indicated above, the Guinness record so far is about 49-50 years. "

Re: Pictures of mopeds in alleys?

They could be African geese. I rescued a mated pair from an Amish guy a few years back. They were pestering his swans, which hatchlings would fetch more money.

My geese and I got along great. They protected my ducks and honked at cars pulling in the drive. Unfortunately, the wife, kids and neighbors didn't have the same, loving relationship with them as I did. The utility companies even set up a robo-call to tell me to secure my "dogs" every time they came to read meters.

I finally gave them to an elderly gentleman with a long, private drive and several ponds on the property. My daughter and I went to visit "John and Yoko" every couple months. About a year after giving them up, the guy called and asked me if I would like them back, as his health was failing. Of course I wanted them back, but as I was the only one, I couldn't take them.

So, I like mopeds, ducks, geese, birds of all kinds, really, Beatles, Roy Orbison, rotary phones, Kevin Costner, Doctor Who, whatever angers the wife. Pretty much nuts.

Don't get me started on having 2 turkey vultures in the kitchen...

The dumpster in picture two was cramping my style. I'll work on my ability to walk through dumpsters. Seems useful

Re: Pictures of mopeds in alleys?

I was being a smart ass when I added the post about Kirstey, Sheedy, and Muhummad. But here's more pictures...

I doubt Kirstey ever rode a moped or scooter, cuz that's one big ass.

Only had half of our crew in the picture for Raleigh.

Tried to keep only the vintage Tomos and lonely Puch in it.

Plenty more alleys too.

Thanks

Re: Pictures of mopeds in alleys?

Between Main St & Commercial St in my town, there is a park adjacent to the alley. This statue of Sacajawea is next to that park.
