You can tell spring is here--the concrete goose I pass on my morning jogs and walks is dressed to the nines and ready for a garden party! Recently, the family in whose yard this goose resides put a sign on their fence letting their neighbors know that someone(s) had been vandalizing the goose. A couple of outfits had been stolen off of the poor dear, and even its li'l nose has been chipped off. Evidently, the entire neighborhood is now keeping their eyes peeled for any ruffians who might be tempted to tamper with the goose. The dressing of the goose (as it were) is a longtime tradition in the 'hood, and woe betide those who would fool with tradition.
