Duck, Duck, Goose!

Duck, Duck, Goose

Today I am reminded of the game "duck, duck, goose!" we played as children. For those of you not familiar with it, here are (our) the rules:
All the kids sit in a circle. One child starts out, circling the group and tapping the top of each head from the back while saying "duck......duck.....duck.....duck". At a random moment, she says "GOOSE!".  The 'goose' has to jump up and chase the child around the circle, hoping to tag her before she can pop into the circle and find a seat.
I suppose it could be compared to a version of 'upside down fruit basket'.

I remember quivering with excitement, hoping I would be chosen as the 'goose'!

"Our memories are an untidy family album
crammed with images and dreams,
scattered and uncatalogued,
 and their sudden recurrence is wholly unpredictable."

Here is a paper doll by Current. I have previously posted her friend (see March blogs, Ireland) and will continue to post international costumes for them to wear. Today's outfit representing Holland includes a little goose - or is that a duck? - so I thought it fit in with our theme perfectly!

Thanks to OrigamiBears for her wonderful paper doll web site!
