From when I was 8 until I was 17 I had a pet owl. It was a Great Horned Owl. Got it as an owlet from a neighbor that found it while hunting. Later I found they were endangered and a huge fine if you had a feather let alone a whole bird. I checked into giving it to a zoo and/or wildlife group and found they could only keep them alive for 2 years. I had already had it for 4 so I just kept it until it passed 5 years later from eating a mouse or rat that had been poisoned and got into his aviary. Since it had been raised in captivity I didn't think it would survive if I released it into the wild. I let if fly free all the time and it would return to me and land on my arm. Considered myself a night falconer.

Being only 8 when I got it I named it Herbert Hooter.

Man this working hard stuff makes the day fly by.

I am the only one here and I had a real live customer to deal with, a stack of jobs to get out, and now I need to make a very involved price quote.

No work yesterday or the day before. Today, in an hour, I have some flying stuff scheduled - trying to get back in and finish. I can't cancel now without being charged. Do I get a call from a client, yup.

oh, it was definitely a mistake. the mirror pictured in the auction IS the mirror i received. it is remarkably similar to the subaru mirror. it also arrived with a paper tag on it with "99 forester" written on it. the breakage was negligence on their part. you all want to see pictures?
