No Geese but . . . water and a question

I still haven't found any geese but even if I did I couldn't get to them. There is still quite a bit of snow in the fields and where there isn't any snow there is mud, lots of mud. The snow is melting so fast it is forming rivers in the streets and I am amazed to find some stuff that I thought I'd lost really was buried under snow! What we're worried about now, at least down hill from me, is flooding. I've got some work to do in my basement, just in case, but to be sure and keep out the snow melt is not a just in case but a for real issue so that is going to take some time.
Now that I have reached that milestone of 60 years I actually got to eat a Senior meal today at the local cafe! It wasn't impressive and I would have rather had venison!
I have a question for readers--are my longer posts too long? I would really like to know. glg

Absolutely not!

You write exactly what you need to write, without excess. I think it's all very well crafted.

I don't think your longer posts are too long. I'm sure some folks will tune out anything more than a paragraph or two, but limiting yourself to that length would really change the style of your blog and limit your ability to provide an examination of any complex issues.

No, they are not too long, but a double-space between paragraphs would help.

I find that blog paragraphs should be like newspaper paragraphs, most of the time -- short.

I like your longer posts... especially since you don't post everyday. If you did, then they would be a bit long.

Keep up the good work!

If it's well written, it's never too long.

Your posts are never too long, and always a pleasure to read. I must concur with all those who've replied, and encourage you to keep up the good work and continue to craft your blog as you see fit.

It looks like it'll continue warming up in your area, and so the melt is on! Good luck with locating some Geese.
