Thanks,me too,Paul..This is my only one,but I have hinted long enough..it worked ! :o) I have always loved Owls,and have two indoor ornaments too..both for 'special ' Birthdays..no way would I have paid so much myself ,Lol.
Some shapes are better than others.so they chose well :o)

He's super, Bloomer. Have you discovered if his eyes glow in the dark yet?

20 Jan, 2013

 

He is a smasher. I didn't know some eyes glowed in the dark.

Thanks,Waddy..I forgot you had asked me that..he is living by the front door now,not on that wall..that is where I put bird food at the moment..and I didn't want the other kind of white stuff on his head,if you know what I mean ! Lol..so,just for you,I have been outside,in the cold,,brought him into the hall,in the dark..
and no,they don't ! :o)) x

Thanks H.bird,Neither did I,till Waddy mentioned it..I must check one out sometime..might scare the Magpies,with a bit of luck :o)

I have always wanted one,Amy..just love them..Carole has a nice one too..:o)

Thanks San..they are cute..I can see a family congregating eventually..stood on the gravel altogether :o)

Gorgeous owl!

Thanks Junna,and I will say hello to Thomas for you,when I see him..Owls are my favourite birds..
He now has a very tall white hat on,as we had lots of snow during the night..at least 20 cms..or 8" roughly ..( not good with metric ) Lol..
..
thanks Neellan.. I have wanted one for a long time now,so I'm very happy with this one..:o)
..
I agree,Carole..I love it..Thomas told me what it was,before I even got chance to unwrap it..which he did as well ! Lol..I haven't christened him yet,but I will when I think of a suitable name..:o) Have you got the snow today? complete white out here..and over 750 schools closed in West Yorkshire ....
..
Thanks,Karen..I would have picked this one myself,if I'd been buying it..some have lop sided heads ! ..enough with mine really :o)) It is quite heavy,so he won't blow over..just have to watch my toes when I move it! lol..

Hi Sandra Its the same here complete wipe out, just when we planned to get out of the house for hour, Harry has been out with some of the neighbours clearing the snow in the close and I have just filled all the feeders and put fresh water out , time for a cuppa now;0)

21 Jan, 2013

 

Russell and a neighbour are out shovelling as well..but at least it's not icy..We have just had a phone call from the lady who bought our last house,to tell us the Dentist is closed,and would Russ make another appointment !! We only moved 11 years ago,and they have our phone number here,plus email address :o) I don' think she was very pleased :o)
Alison and Anthony are home as well,and Nursery is closed..but she is going to try and get in after lunch..all the build up of traffic is now clear,so she should be ok..
They all managed to walk down to the Doctors early this morning...Thomas has a gruff voice,and GP thinks he has croup..given him antibiotics as he thinks it will go on to his chest..he hates it,and spit it out ! Lol...he sounded like Tommy Bruce this morning ! didn't like his sledge at the weekend either :o) .Happy days ...

21 Jan, 2013

 

Aw poor Thomas I hope he is better soon :o)

21 Jan, 2013

 

Thomas is a mighty one I know He'll be alright:-)))))xxx

21 Jan, 2013

 

He will be fine,Neellan and Junna,thank you,..just sounded funny,listening to his voice..he is a tough little man :o)

21 Jan, 2013

 

Good to know....... hugs :o)

21 Jan, 2013

 

I like your owl bloomer

21 Jan, 2013

 

Hugs back,Neellan..looks like it will be a sweetie time
promise,to get him to take after his medicine :o)

Thanks Yorky,he is special :o)

21 Jan, 2013

 

Sorry to hear about Thomas , hope he is soon better Sandra, I dont think anything will keep Thomas down for long lol

21 Jan, 2013

 

Lovely owl. I have a little tiny owl of this particular sort.
Hope Thomas feels better soon.

21 Jan, 2013

 

Thanks Carole ..I'm sure he will bounce back soon..maybe reading his Gruffalo books has rubbed off on him :o)sorry,bad pun Lol.

There are some lovely ones about,Lindak..I didn't expect one this big,to be honest...I might buy a smaller one,as well ..thanks for your good wishes for Thomas....:o)

Aw poor Thomas, hope he's feeling better soon, give him a hug from me, and keep plenty of sweets about xx Love your Owl Bloomer, are we going to have "name the Owl comp." or have you decided what to call him?

22 Jan, 2013

 

Thanks Gralew..he was fine this morning,and his Nursery opened,so that solved a few problems..and he was raring to go..up one minute,down the next,aren't they ? Lol.and the little devil decided he liked his medicine after all,and asked for more! I wondered about a naming comp for the Owl.but I am going to let Thomas choose one..hope it's not Peppa Pig ..ha ha...

22 Jan, 2013

 

Thomas first - I am glad that he is a lot better. Croup is nasty but as you mentioned earlier children are so off colour one day and so much improved the next.

The owl is a beauty and I bet he looks so cute with a covering of snow on him! What a lovely present - they know what you like!!

xx

There is a wise old owl who stands in Bloomers garden fair,
And all the other owls around just come and gather there.
He's read the book of knowledge and he's lived so very long,
A legend to to the birds of prey, he's written down in song.
His name is oh so special that the birds whisper it round
So humans cannot know it as it is only found
In the special book of knowledge that's hidden in a tree
that grows in an oak forest far away over the sea.

23 Jan, 2013

 

Thanks Chris..we are collecting him from Nursery today,as he has gone instead of Monday.when they were closed,and his mum is making some hours up at work..don't know why,when she hardly ever gets off on time anyway ! but it is expected of them .grrr makes me angry...glad you like my Owl..he is keeping some Viola's in pots company by the front door,and looking much healthier ! Lol

23 Jan, 2013

 

What a lovely poem,Lindak..thank you :o)
here is my attempt at a response..
A lonely Owl ,sat alone,and feeling quite remote,
I hope he doesn't see that cat,
and go off in a Pea green boat .! Lol..
sorry,best I can do :o)) x

23 Jan, 2013

 

LOL Bloomer. Being a poet I get carried away sometimes....perhaps in a pea green boat!!!!

23 Jan, 2013

 

What a clever pair you are!
You ought to get together!
Poems would come easily,
from two 'birds of a feather!!'

Sorry!
xx

23 Jan, 2013

 

Believe me,Lindak,I'm no poet..
I should be better,but at least I know it !
There is no hope for me,I fear.
and I can't compare with Edward Lear ! :o))

23 Jan, 2013

 

Thanks Chris,you can see by the following ditty,just how bad I really am ! :o)

You are so kind,dear Devon lass
I think you ask in vain,
It's down to all the cold and ice,
That's seeped into my brain ! :o))

23 Jan, 2013

 

You can say that again Bloomer (only joking) lol xGlad Thomas is back to normal.

23 Jan, 2013

 

You are so right Val :o))...always loved English Lit,and Language at school,but could never get to grips with poetry.. It just never flowed ! :o)Thomas was fine tonight,thanks..still croaky..but full of beans :o)

23 Jan, 2013

 

That made me smile Bloomer. Glad Thomas is getting better.

24 Jan, 2013

 

Smiles are what we need just now,Lindak ..and thanks :o)

24 Jan, 2013

 

Hello Sandra! Hope all is warm and well and Hope to see some pictures of Super Thomas soon, xxx:-))) get well soon :-))) xxx

24 Jan, 2013

 

Hello Junna ! all is very cold,but well here :o) I wish it WAS warm ! I'll put a pic on later for you xx

24 Jan, 2013

 

Bloomer I am a Lancashire Lass really but that wouldn't scan very well would it? :-)

So sorry, I have been in school a lot this week and am too tired in the evenings for communication!!!! Hope to be back to normal next week!!

25 Jan, 2013

 

oops,Chris..of course you are..how did I forget that ?I have just smacked my hand to atone for my sins :o) No worries about getting in touch..whenever is fine..and thanks for the short but nice PM,and the above comment,.to let me know xx

25 Jan, 2013

 

He's a handsome Owl, Sandra ... sorry to hear Thomas was poorly the other day ... had to laugh about him asking for more medicine though ... :o)

27 Jan, 2013

 

He is standing up to this weather ok,I'm glad to say..still looks wide eyed and legless ! Lol...and you will find Ellora can change her mind a lot before long too..contrary little things..we are having the same problem with some meals..things he always liked,now he says he doesn't ! we tend to ignore it,on the whole..just a phase I hope,and an age thing I think...when he sees he won't win,he usually eats it,if not,he does without....that sounds awful,but you know what I mean..he doesn't exactly look as though he is starving ! Lol.
