The last sighting of Owlie
I'm missing Owlie! He had so many more places to see. In this scene we re-enacted an event that happened to my husband. Many years ago when his sister Monica was little, he took her to the animal park in San Diego. She saw a churro stand and wanted one, so Mike being the good brother that he is went to buy her one. No sooner does he pay for it and it's handed to him then Bam! A seagull swoops out of the sky and steals it right out of his hand. He didn't even know what happened, stunned, he pulls out his wallet and buys another one. Bam! Within seconds, Gone! Needless to say Monica did not get her churro that day. So in honor of Mike and his encounter with the seagulls we took this picture! I still laugh when ever I think of what must have been the stunned look on his face and the Churro vendors obvious smile as he sells him another one.
