lookie whoooo just flew in!
These guys just flew all the way from santa barbara, CA. and when I was taking pictures of them, I'd blink and they popped up in a different spot. Rascally little fellows! I decided to name them Fred, Ned and Ed. They seemed to like those names. Mary Stanley (see my links) made them for a bazaar and when I saw them on her blog, I knew I'd have to adopt them. I have developed this thing for owls but hadn't found any I liked until I saw these. To say I flipped out was an understatement. I knew I needed all 3 brothers. To split them up would have been very sad for them...and me. Mary rug hooked them and then stuffed them. I proudly own quite a few things from her now and they all make me enormously happy.
I just got new glasses...my first pair of transition bifocals. YIKES! The doctor told me I am simply getting old and that's what eyes do. Thanks doc for reminding me! Right now everything looks as if I am in the matrix movie, moving slightly as my eyes adjust to all the different levels of seeing in the lenses. I feel as if I am in an alternate reality that is moving and breathing and an illusion. I was told it takes about a week to get used to. I'm hoping it takes less!
