Independence Day


I really enjoyed Independence Day this year. My old friends the Pitts invited me over for a thoroughly traditional barbecue and fireworks display:

Afterward, I swung by the home of some other old friends. They were putting on a slightly more down-home style show:

Huffman Sparklers

I rode my bike to reach all this excitement. On the way I saw what became my favorite sight of the day:

Look a little closer there:

    that owl has special needs. one legged, two-toed, perched on a car in the daylight? that may have been its last appearance.

    I think Lucas was having more of a fireworks show than we had at Shawnee. The gang around here bought about $400 dollars worth, but we didn’t even hang around for it.

    As for the owl, I think it’s a sign. You see, I dream in owl and I speak in owl. I know a black lady who pronounces my name “owl.” I don’t know what the sign means, but who cares? It’s just good to have a sign.

    It may have been freaked-out by the fireworks.

  5. toby Says:

    Mom, that’s just what I was thinking. I’m betting July 4th is the least popular holiday among urban owls.

    He did fly away later, Mike. So at least he has that going for him.
