One in every family

Just outside our residence in Burlington we saw this family of geese - Mother, Father and eight babies. In the picture below you can see Mamma and seven babies taking a walk along the inner side of the fence. We looked around and saw Dad and one lone straggler making there way slowly along the fence trying to catch up to Mom and her gang.
Soon Mamma, ducked under the fence and started walking in the other direction, along the outer side of the fence. All seven babies followed her, but the straggler declined to follow suit. He turned and walked with the others, but on the inner side of the fence. Dad dutifully stayed on this side of the fence to keep and eye on him.
Yes, there is one in every family. They march to their own drummer and do their own thing.

I love this post cuppa, so very true isn't it "one in every family"
