Cheswick...


... the Great Horned Owl! I am sure all the Great Horned Owls everywhere are very insulted by my version but he's mine and I love him! He did give me some grief in the making but he proudly stands atop our bookcase looking down with those enormous eyes.

Speaking of owls so far this year we have not seen the real Great Horned Owls down at the nature refuge. Last winter their tree that they had been nesting in blew down in a bad storm. Everyone is on the lookout for them though. I hope they have found a new suitable tree and will again have young.

Well I am going to take a long weekend staying up at my daughters house. So enjoy your weekend and I will see you all again next week.

I like your owl. He looks like he has attitude.

We have a pair of Great Horned Owls that live in the woods behind our place. I've seen one of them a couple times when Samba and I went out during the wee hours. One night one of them was in the tree right next to the house. We didn't know she was there and I took all the dogs out. Suddenly she called out and I must have jumped three feet in the air. She was right above me. The dogs started barking and couldn't get to the door fast enough. I think all our hearts were racing by the time we got into the garage.

Don't let your daughter work you too hard this weekend. How do you like your new toy so far?

I missed Cheswick... He's great!!! Caroline would adore him! He would be perfect sitting among books. I haven't heard our owls in awhile now that you mention it.
