Quack! Quack! Quack!

06 February 2017 - 08:25 PM

This is not a funny, but I thought that you gals would love this adorable story.

 

Officer James Givens has served with the Cincinnati Police Department for over 26 years, but has never quite experienced anything like this before.


 
He was sitting in his patrol car in a parking lot when he got an unexpected visitor.

 
A goose came up to his car and started pecking on the side of it.

 
He threw food out for her, thinking that's what she wanted, but she didn't take it.

She continued to peck and quack, then walked away, stopped, and looked back at Officer Givens.

 
Then she came back to his car and pecked at it again.   She made it very obvious that she wanted Officer Givens to follow her, so he finally got out of his car and did just that.

The goose led him 100 yard away to a grassy area near a creek.  Sitting there was one of her babies, tangled up in a balloon string.  The baby was kicking its feet, desperate for help.

 
Being wary of helping the baby on his own, and worried that the goose might attack him, Givens called for help from the SPCA, but no wildlife rescuers were available at the moment.

Luckily, Given's colleague, Officer Cecilia Charron, came to help.  She began to untangle the baby, and the mother goose just stood there and watched, quacking.  She didn't become aggressive, and just let Officer Charron do what she had to do to set the baby free.

 
It was like the mother goose knew they were helping.  Once Charron untangled the baby, she put it down and it ran right to her mom, and they went right to swimming in the creek.

 
Charron teared up and said it was the highlight of her 24 years on the force.

"It seems like something made up.  It was just incredible," Givens said.  "I honestly don't know why I decided to follow her, but I did.  It makes me wonder – do they know to turn to humans when they need help?"

 
We may never know the answer to this question, but what we do know is that Officer Givens was in the right place at the right time to help these geese!
 

 


Open Recently Edited Files

I used PSE15 and until recently 'Open Recently Edited File' has always worked. Now it no longer works and I can't find anything helpful at Adobe to fix this problem.

 

Is anyone else having the same problem? Any help would be appreciated.

ATC's

I always have a problem reducing a 12x12 paper to the size of an ATC. Can someone help and let me how I can do this? My pages always look squashed and out of shape.

 

Thanks for any help you can give me.

 

 


Adding more than one style to an image

13 November 2016 - 08:57 AM

I'm using PSE15 and I would like to know if there is a way to add more than one style to an image. I've been looking on the Adobe help website, but I can't find any information on how this is done. I don't know that there is a way, but I thought that I remembered someone saying that it could be done.

 

Does anyone know how to do this? If so, I'd appreciate some help.
