    • Thanks Rick. Drawing this goose was lots of fun. I Initially had “Hey!” in the second panel,but decided to remove it so you get only an inquisitive look from the goose before it asks “Watcha doing?”

      • that timing makes a great difference (imo). I live where houses are very close together but may have a waist high fence to keep dogs in etc. literally someone can sneeze in one house and you hear it in the next and wonder if you should say, “Bless you”. some do not acknowledge a person on the other side of the fence maybe because you’d always have to be saying that acknowledgement. that may be why this panel clicks strongly with me. fun thank you. aloha
