TO GOOSE OR NOT TO GOOSE


Should I GOOSE him or shouldn't I?
Whattaya think?


He's probably zeroing in on another rock.
What is it with humans and rocks anyway?
Some dogs chew them but not little ol' me!


Sweet nothin's in my ears again!
Oh so, that's what you were taking pictures of.


I promise not to walk on them because they are so fragile looking.


I promise to be better than good.


^click to see it on another beach^


Daddy Ron is showing me one that is glittering on his hand.


Aren't they so very special ~~ little globules of reflecting light
and a see-through design.
Ain't Nature Grand!


No stinging or hurting you ~~
just a creature that lives in the ocean
sharing our big beautiful planet.


Once I inspected the "sea GOOSEberry"
Ron placed it back into the ocean just to the right of the rock
in the sand and water.
Can you see how transparent / invisible it almost is?


Just another moment of whether to 
GOOSE OR NOT TO GOOSE.
(taking liberty with the seaGOOSEberry is just my way)

  4. SophieDoodle, you are turning into a little philosopher on your beach walks. I had never heard of this kind of gooseberry, but now you reminded me of the kind that grows on bushes back home in Sweden, but never to be found here in California.

    1. I know exactly what you are talking about IngerDoodle ~~~ Gooseberry Bushes are popular here, not a whole lot but enough to know about them.

      I'm sure KALLIE ~ 4 ~ KNEE ~ EYE ~ EH ((SORRY ~ JUST HAD TOO)) has many things that we need to be shown so we can learn about your world, right!!!!!!

      Hugs to ALL!!

    1. We have seen them on the beaches before Martha ~~ thinking they were bambino jellyfish ~~ but alas we are so wrong.

      With some research and off we go into a new world on our beaches ~~ they are such fascinating creatures as they glisten in the sun and sink effortlessly into the sand as we return them to their home!!!!

      SMILES!!

    Breathe some of that fresh air for me,,,, listen to the seagull. and love each other,

  16. Hi Y'all,

    The only similar thing to a gooseberry that my Human has seem is the jelly fish, which doesn't appear to have tentacles out of the water, but has long stinging ones in the water. Those are neat little things. Do they only show up in the spring?

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog
