Huh?

*Hopefully I can get through this short post while holding my breath...we are having a bit of thunder and Nellie is under my desk...and is having a seriously nasty bout with intestinal gas*

Gasp.

At my program today, a man asked me if Great Horned Owls are extinct.





So what, you say?




Oh, yeah. Forgot to mention that I was holding the Great Horned Owl on my hand at the time.

The disapproval rains down
"Wha...?"

Sure he wasn't asking if they stink? :)

Good point, Dave. I think they really do stink. :)

Geeez. I had an inquiry from a police officer last week, "Will you all be offering firearms recertification on-line?" I thought oh yeah, your computer monitor would be an easy target.

Maybe he meant "endangered" or something?

Or, maybe he was just an idiot. We ain't too bright out here in eastern Clermont, LOL!

Having grown up in the area, I would have to agree with Kathi.

You may need to make a list of stupid questions people ask about raptors.

(BTW, let us read the list so we know what not to ask.)

Great laughs, especially the vision of the flatulent dog under your feet.

Kathi got it right...he meant to say endangered. When I tried to keep a straight face and explain that GHOW's are emphatically NOT extinct (pointing to Sylvester), he put his hand over his face and laughed. He was so embarrassed.

Oh, man--some people. Well, at least with your above note, the mystery comment was explained.

Poor guy!

It looks like you survived the gassing.
