Vinyls are collectors items these days, some can be worth a fortune.

I came home yesterday to husband and kid sitting on the floor playing a racing game on a ZX spectrum. Hubby had got it working again.

Let's see, the DVD/CD player works. So does the amplifier. Now the turntable. He said now all he has to clean and hook up is the old VCR player. I guess we're living the real "back to the future".

*sigh* I have a new love. No, I haven't kicked Himself to the curb, silly! We have a second species of owl in our backyard. As you all might know, Himself and I are pretty much night owls ourselves, so I get to hear all of the night critters out back. Earlier this week, night one of the calls started. The little guy has been calling out every night ever since. I'm afraid that, like the barred owls, once he finds himself a mate things will quiet down. Without delay, meet our new friend. Isn't he cute?

Hilarious! "My Cousin Vinny". Yet another movie I missed as it's made the rounds. Need to add it to my library list.

I haven't seen this bird, but he's only as big as a robin. I might be the same owl as in the movie, but he doesn't sound like that. The sound isn't loud, either, like a small horse hiding in the trees. He/she is just a little guy, GG, and somewhere back in our woods. We never cleared the back yard all the way to the property line like many of our neighbors did, so there is at least 100 feet of wooded area, squared (the lot is 100x253). We've been host to many different birds, as well as a fox, lots of bunnies and chipmunks, and the plethora of...squirrels.


While we're on the subject of owls, here is so much cuteness to start off the weekend:

OMG, I'm dying of cuteness overload! So adorable. The three on the log... OMG.

Now... YOU HAVEN'T SEEN "MY COUSIN VINNY"?!? What are you waiting for? It's a classic! Marisa Tomei won an OSCAR for her performance! She's so gorgeous and fabulous!

We that movie so much. There aren't many movies we'll both sit and watch no matter where in the movie it is when we come across it, but it's one of my all-time favorites. You must let me know what you think of it.

Nope, haven't seen it, GG. There are all kinds of classics I've not watched. I'm not much of a movie or TV watcher. However, it is on my list at the library. I'll request a copy once baseball season is over.

Eastern Screech Owl

CG, one time our library had a demonstration of birds of prey. A beautiful Bald Eagle, A Golden Eagle, and some owls. They had the one of the owls fly around the room. we never heard even one flap of the wings. These were birds that had been injured in the wild and could no longer feed or defend themselves. The owl that did the flying for us, had only one leg. He was unable to hold down the prey with his one foot and still pick at his catch. As much as I love Bald Eagles, I was so fascinated by the owls. As a kid, when we lived on the farm, I had an owl and a whoop-a-will right outside my window. Every night I would fall asleep to their callings. This was the first time I had ever seen one up close.
