It was 38 degrees this morning, here at Loon Lake. The heat kicked in at the camp. When I got back from walking the dogs at 7 AM, Paula was up (unusual) and my son Jon told me that his sister had called, and she was in labor and on her way to the hospital. Paula started to get ready to head back down to the Albany area, to be with Emily.
I went goose hunting.
Early Canada Goose season starts today. Pickings are slim around the lake– no real cornfield hunting opportunities. So visit many of the adjoining ponds, to see if i can jump the geese before they head out to feed. I saw two, but did not take a shot.
I also visited with a couple of my friends over Inman way– I have not seen them since Spring, so it was good to catch up.
Oh yeah– at 7:30, I received a one word text from Emily’s husband, Chris: “girl!”
I kept hunting.
Around 9:30 I got back to camp. I learned that Em had the baby before Paula had left camp– and that she had been in the hospital 3 minutes before giving birth. I thought she cut it close last time– when she had Warren 20 minutes after getting to the hospital.
Both Em and the baby are doing well.
Paula has not arrived at the hospital yet.
I am going back out to run the dogs.
Rosalie. Her nickname will be silly goose.
