Letter: Thanks Connie, for the memories

Donna Rieder writes:
The photo of the geese noted by Connie Slattery brought back childhood memories of my aunt Emma Clemens' (some relation to Samuel but not sure how) geese. She, too, had these ginormous white Emden geese at her farm in Georgia, and they seemed to really enjoy chasing and pinching us small humans, while we ran screaming around and around the house with them in close pursuit.

Emden geese are one of the biggest of the domesticated geese breeds, and for a small child, seeing them at eye level with their wings outspread was truly a terrifying sight. The adults, however, seemed to enjoy the show as they laughed as us young'uns were mauled by these awful birds! Thanks for the memories!
