A Friend of the Goose takes GREAT photos

Mother Goose had such a busy birthday! I have found as the years stack up that it takes days to recover from birthdays — why is that? I did not overindulge in the luscious fruit of the vine, nor did I partake in any contests that involved shots of agave fruit juice. I merely OVER did it. So easy to do when you’re a goose…

Here I am with my birthday fireball which was Red Velvet Bundt.

Please excuse my unfolded laundry....

Oh it was so tasty, but I only had one piece — certainly would never get involved in the sin of gluttony on my birthday. I had but one slider from White Castle and two pieces of pizza from Piece. We went to the new Sherlock Holmes movie, and I had several twizzlers, but hardly any popcorn. And I actually fell asleep watching Robert Downey Jr. which is not like Mother Goose AT ALL…

But the happiest part of my birthday celebration was my presents, of course! I received a hair dryer and a round brush and some hair ties! I received a lavender scented candle and a Christmas snow globe! I received the six DVD special edition set of Planet Earth. I received a gift card to The Great Frame Up. I received two HUGE bouquets of gorgeous flowers. And the most exciting gift of all, the opportunity to pick out a print from our favorite photographer, Eric Kleinberg!

If you haven’t seen Eric’s work, please rush over here and see it as soon as possible. He’s a gracious fellow with an amazing eye — I think you’ll be hooked on his photos as quickly as I was. Just when I think I know which photo I’d like to have printed and framed, I find another one that I like even better. It’s so hard to choose! Do I want a people pic? A nature pic? A food pic? Something thought-provoking or something that makes me laugh? I’ve gone back and forth on a couple of great shots — still haven’t made up my mind.

This?

Or this?

Decisions, decisions…. But this will be a fun decision to make — as in “win, win”.

I hope your days are merry and bright! Blessings abundant from Mother Goose!

    A belated Happy Birthday, Mother Goose! It sounds as though you celebrated with gusto!
    Hmm. I’m not familiar with this photographer, but will be sure to pay a visit to his web-site. I certainly would not be able to choose between those two photos that you shared…. good luck with your decision!

      Haha “celebrated with gusto”
      For me lately, that means skipping my metamucil for a day and going to bed at 10:00 instead of 9:30. πŸ™‚

    Here I am laughing again as I read your posts! The cake looks wonderful, and I didn’t even notice the laundry until you called attention to it. LOL! I hope you’ll share what you photograph you finally purchase! Debra

      Laughing is always GOOD…and the laundry of Mother Goose is always in process. I did finally order the storm pic, but now I think I want BOTH of those pix. I’m a greedy old goose….
