Hootenanny!

Rumor has it these pictures were taken at a recent get-together of Hoot’s family.

    That’s us, a real multi-cultural family. Whoo would have suspected all those colors in one conservative family? And always laughing.

    Thanks Bob. My heart was broken (not in two but a nice big crack) Sunday and the laughter of this post helps hold it together until the glue of forgiveness sets. (“And always laughing” from my above comment was a bit of an overstatement for the Hoots. As Mom always said, “This too shall pass.” I pray she was right.

      I love it. Even at the weensy size, I can tell it’s a laughing owl. Finding a really good gravatar is hard.

    • Someone posted these laughing owl pictures on FB, and as soon as I saw them I knew I had to share them here. I love owls, and so does my daughter, who draws pictures of them all the time — someday I’ll post some of her drawings.

      Yesterday I had to go to Trader Joe’s, and I dropped my daughter off at Michael’s so she could shop for craft supplies while I was busy stocking up on sprouted wheat bread. When I went to pick her up, she had found two cute little owl ornaments that she talked me into buying for the Christmas tree that we don’t have yet. She knows I’m a sucker for owls. (Weird for bluebird, I know!)

    Be careful with that snowy white owl. People may accuse you of being a raaaacccist.
    I saw a Christmas towel in the store today. It said, “Deck the Halls with Owls and Holly”. I think you need to get one!

    • Isn’t holly poisonous? No wonder they barfed it up! My kitties would do the same if I ever gave them the chance.

      Christmas decorations are how we found out that Bessie, our Holstein cat, likes to retrieve. The first Christmas we had her, she kept stealing a certain type of ornament off the tree — candy canes that my kids had made out of pipe cleaners that they first twisted around a knitting needle, then bent into a cane shape. Bessie would pinch them off the tree, then carry them downstairs to my daughter’s bedroom and shove them under the door. My daughter was getting tired of having candy canes shoved under her bedroom door, and one day in irritation she picked up one of them and threw it down the hall. Bessie immediately ran after it, picked it up, and carried it back to her. It cracked us all up. After that, Bessie was constantly bringing candy canes to any human that happened to be available, hoping for a game of fetch.

        I’ve never heard of a cat who enjoyed playing fetch LOL. One of my poodles loves it; but the other pulls the bored teenager look when I offer him the opportunity. And poodles were originally bred to retrieve water fowl, like Labradors!
