Yesterday was a strange day for weather, the morning was nice and sunny but in the afternoon we experienced a series of powerful bursts of rainfall. One of them was accompanied by strong wind gusts that knocked over trees and drove the rain horizontally into the side of the house. Apart from the weather the high point of my day was finding a taxidermy Canada Goose at a garage sale for only $20. It is a bit ragged but still fairly majestic. I'm going to hang it high up in our foyer where it can fly above the taxidermy Bobcat, duck and crocodile.
