A Few More Owl Photos & Some Funnies

I decided to add some more of the owl photos due to the interest
in my last post.

This is the sight that greeted me open opening my front door.
Click on the photo to enlarge it and you will be able to see the owl.

Okay what do you want!!!!

Playing dead or maybe having a little nap!!

You looking at me, yeah you...you looking at me!!

I just need a little rest!!

This was in Sunday's Paper as "Joke of the Week"

A GUY slopping in a supermarket noticed a little old
lady following him around, staring at him. At the checkout
she overtook him, then turned and said: "I hope I haven't
made you feel ill at ease - it's just that you look so
much like my late son.
"I know it's silly, but if you'd call Out 'Goodbye. Mum'
as I leave the store, it would make me feel so happy...
So they went through the checkout, and as she was on her
way out of the store, the man called out, "Goodbye. Mother."
The little old lady smiled back.
Pleased that he had brought a little sunshine into someone's
day, he went to pay for his groceries. "That comes to $121.85,"
the attendant said.
"How come it's so much?" he asked. "I only bought five items."
The attendant replied: "Yeah, but your mother said you'd pay
for her things, too."

Each evening bird lover Tom stood in his backyard, hooting like an owl - and one night, an owl finally called back to him.

For a year, the man and his feathered friend hooted back and forth. He even kept a log of the "conversation."

Just as he thought he was on the verge of a breakthrough in interspecies communication, his wife had a chat with her next door neighbor.

"My husband spends his nights calling out to owls," she said.

"That's odd," the neighbor replied. "So does my husband."
