This morning, while driving Aspen to school, we stopped the car to watch a hawk near the road going after a mouse.
After continuing on we observed a gaggle of Canadian Geese only some 20 yards or so down the path. An easy snack for the hawk.

I ponder out loud why our befriended bird of prey didn't try to catch one of the geese instead of a mere mouse.

Aspen responded in perfect timing...

"Maybe he didn't want to go on a wild goose chase."

Yea!! Finally an Aspen quote that's not at my expense!
