Ollie is what I call our plastic, life-sized owl on our deck. He's supposed to keep squirrels away, but doesn't. I've even seen squirrels sitting next to him on the banister!
I don't know why I talk to him, but I do.
Maybe because I talk to so few people during the Covid pandemic.
He doesn't talk back--thank the Lord! That would mean I was really going bonkers....
Today he had snow on his head in the shape of a yamaka. I hadn't know he was Jewish.
He has a brother on a poll down in the back of our yard. I haven't named that one.
That one doesn't keep anything away either.
I don't know if that one is Jewish too.
But Ollie listens quietly when I talk to him, taking it all in but not responding.
What will I start talking to next?
