  22. Oh I love our owls! We rescues one just like it on the interstate. It was standing on the edge of the median and would sway as trucks passed. Being a fabric person I have a tote in the back at all times. We turned around, Came up behind with the fabric and just picked it up. We put it in the tote and carried it to the pound where they called a local rescue group. We stayed to make sure it was picked and told them where we found it. It had been hit but it made it was re-introduced back to the wild. Thanks and sorry so long.

  25. I love owls, they’re very special. My 18 year old daughter passed away early last year from cancer and she loved owls. Not long after she passed, my sister got an owl tattoo in memory of her. A few days later an owl flew into her garage and stayed there overnight. She’d been in that house 7 years and never seen an owl before that and hasn’t since. I love all things owl since and I love your designs so this book is going on the ‘must have’ list. Thanks for another gorgeous design

I would like to see what you have done with that line. Every thing you do is to my liking! Thank you and God's Blessing for you both!

  136. Thank you! I really want the book, and your row is awesome. I love owls. We have one who lives in the woods between our house and the other side of the ravine that separates two blocks of houses. Sometimes he's close to my side and easy to hear and sometimes he flies to the other end, and it's a distant sound, but I love it! I've not seen him, and don't know the owl calls enough to know what kind, but it's a friendly, comforting sound to me. Lucky you to have a group right there to greet you each morning! dezertsuz at gmail
