Yesterday evening Dennis and went mountain bike riding at Ritter Park with Jane and Buddy Lake and saw two of these guys! That's a barred owl if you couldn't guess! It was about 8:30 pm and getting dark and I saw this big bird swoop down from a tree. I thought it was a hawk after one of about 1000 squirrels that live there but then when it landed in the tree, it was an owl!! One girl was jogging by and said that she often sees three of them there. We saw two and thought that was really, really cool. They didn't seem to mind the four of us standing there with our mouths hanging open, staring at them like they were aliens either!
It has been a very busy week with all the "workshops" I've attended for dear old Cabell County. I feel like I am already back to work - blech. My sys op training was a real brain smoker. Heaven help me get the hang of those files, folders, settings, and steps to keep the wheels grinding on those old computers!!!! haha
Went out for my 3 mile walk this morning hoping I would beat the heat. Not so. It was already 81* at 10:30 this morning and I was sweating like a piglet!! Time to go cool down!
