Yesterday's Arthur - Mar 02
My sister received this magnificent plastic owl for her birthday a few years ago; you're supposed to put it in your vegetable patch where it will hopefully ward off all manner of pesky lettuce eater. It's an imposing foot-and-a-half tall, its head spins around 360 degrees and it has big menacing yellow eyes. It ain't no Woodsy Owl. Arthur was alternately fascinated and afraid of it, and its head had to be turned to the wall or he'd get really agitated. He couldn't rest when the thing was looking at him.
