The other evening, Stormie had some friends over. Yes,...Stormie IS my dog, and yes, she has friends. Human friends....little ones. I wonder if anyone else has neighborhood kids who come over to play with their dog?
Ok, back to my story. Stormies 3 friends were over and we were all in the backyard having a great time as they told me about the secret path that goes behind the gazebo...very cool...hmmm, I never saw that before. :)
Well, one of her friends, Austin (a young man about 7 yrs old), saw that we had a bird box on the large Pecan tree. He thought it was incredibly cool and we began to chat about it...
ME: "One time we had owls living in there"
AUSTIN: (eyes growing wide)..."what?"
ME: "One time we had some owls that were living in there. There were three of them, but they moved out now"
AUSTIN: (eyes are HUGE now, staring at me in wonder)..."Owvs?"
ME: "yeah, neat huh?"
AUSTIN: "You mean Santa's Elves lived in there???"
ME: "LOLOLOL, um, no, not them..OWLS...the birds"
AUSTIN: "Oh, ok"
He really believes in them...elves.
And he really thought they could have lived in that box. :)
Oh the wonder of children.
Have a beautiful day!
