mild kingdom


James took this picture of the baby owls that are living in our backyard. Each morning just as the sun is coming up (yes, we get up that early) (sigh), we see the little owls sitting in a tree or on the power line, just chilling. Probably trying to digest whatever small mammals they ate during the night. We first saw what we think is mamma owl right after Ike blew into town. Owls are cool.

And they aren’t the only wildlife living with us. We also have a possum and at least two cats that hang around pretty regularly. There must be something tasty (rats?) under the house because there’s always a lot of activity. Especially at night. Sometimes when I’m soaking in the tub, I can hear something under the floor scratching around. Yeah, it’s as relaxing as it sounds.
