Thanks guys! This morning I read the paper. DH came home at noon for lunch, and announced that the paper was here, and he brought it in. I said, what's that? I already read the paper. Apparently I read yesterday's paper....seemed current to me!

I think I can get used to this.

Kudos to Stirling! Too bad this won't result in a raise, eh?

No, it won't result in an raise. It does add to his reputation with his supervisor.

BTW, nice use of "eh".

I know when to throw it in, eh?

*******************

Our Owl Is Back! I heard the "territorial hooting" last night. A couple of days ago, while sitting near a window in the back of our home, I saw a huge span of wings gliding over the treetops. My first thought, when the bird was quite a distance away, was "that hawk has one huge wing span!" When he got close enough to clear the treetops I saw not a narrow hawk's head but...a saucer full of feathers? What, we have an owl with insomnia living in our trees? No surprise, since we stay up late enough to wake the birds (someone's got to do it), but apparently Great Horned Owls will hunt during the day when the pickin's are slim.

It also depends on the moon. During full moon they are out at night.

We had one living in our rafters and heard its comings and goings. It also took rabbits off our snare line. We used to joke that we not only put a roof over its head and heated, we fed it too.

We've had Bachelor Owl here for many years. He hoots like crazy, but no lady owl answers. DH hoots at him, and gets his hopes up. We also have pairs who answer back and forth. Every owl pair has a distinctive hoot.

Dawg,we've actually had a mating couple within sound range the last couple winters. Cute to hear them call-and-answer. This year it's just the one call...hope nothing happened to the "mate'.

Taxy, we've heard them at night quite often the last couple of years. This was the first time I had spotted an owl during the day. Haven't seen one at night, but then we have a lot of woods around here.

We have an owl of some sort, never seen it. It only calls in the daytime. But with not ever seeing the sun around here...

Dawg, it must have been nice to keep relaxing and read another paper!

Pretty soon, you'll start to think of all the projects you can start after having a suitable rest period.

Any chance he can take one of his guitars and volunteer for a sing a long at a nursing home?
