He picked me. That was at least 10 years ago and I have come to the park almost every day to visit him

“I was walking through the park and I avoided the geese because they put their long necks out and I was afraid of them, but this one came right up to me. He picked me. That was at least 10 years ago and I have come to the park almost every day to visit him. At first I called him Donald Duck, but he is not a duck. I remembered a show when I was little called Garfield Goose, so I named him Garfield Goose Schneider. His girlfriend is G.G., that stands for Garfield’s Girlfriend. He has another friend, a man who comes at night. He wears a wetsuit and goes out pretty far in the bay and will kneel down and Garfield gets on the man’s back and spreads his wings. It is so pretty. The man calls him Lucas, from Star Wars. Garfield knows my car and comes to meet me. All of the geese look different and have a different voice. Garfield is a big blessing and a gift from God. He is part of my family and I pray for him every day. I feed him and the other geese cracked corn in the winter when the grass is gone. The geese here are very sweet, don’t ever be afraid of them.”
“What else do you do when you aren’t with Garfield?”
“I am a fan of Laurel and Hardy movies and I show them at the Fairhope Library on the second Saturday of every month. Since I was six, they were on TV every day in Chicago and during lunch at school, I would go home to watch them. I would walk a mile home and run the mile back just to watch them while I ate my chicken and rice soup. I am a member of the international fan club and go to the conventions and became friends with Stan’s daughter. I have all of the movies and started showing them at the library. I also sing in the choir and my husband was the commander at the American Legion for a long time. I am a member of a group that studies the Constitution to see how we can help our government. I am busy, which I like.”
