I Heard the Owl Call My Name
There was an owl hooting away out front last night. It was so loud I could hear it inside the house with the door closed. Once I went outside and thought I could make out its silhouette on the roof of the house across the street. I was reminded of the time, shortly after we moved into our house, when owls made heavy use of the unfinished buildings in our subdivision. I like owls, though they are almost as bad for cats as coyotes. Still, that book I read in seventh grade surfaces in the back of my mind, not to mention Twin Peaks, making me wonder whether there's a reason I've become the audience for owls.

Look on the good side: Your sightings, from what I can tell, have all been nocturnal. Remember what happened to Herod! :)

A good point. Of course, the fact that I'm up too late too often is part of the problem. . .

Loved your entry with the abandoned house, BTW. I had this weird vision of a child coming home to a meth lab and an ice cream.

The first time I saw an owl take a dump, I was glad that cows didn't fly.

You have a way of putting things that. . . well, it's very vivid.
