Ok, I know that was cheesy. I couldn’t help it. I took this picture after I impulse-bought all those crazy gourds during my Montauk Weekend. My dad (the Box) purchased this faux owl to scare away a team of woodpeckers that was plaguing the house with their incessant banging (don’t they get headaches?). It didn’t work. Furthermore, squirrels openly flout the owls by walking (if squirrels walk) right up to them and eating acorns along side them.
Anyway, as both Fall and the weekend are clearly upon us, this image seemed appropriate for reasons I can’t even imagine. I’ll try and think of some though:
1. An owl is supposed to be wise, like this one. We happen to think our readers are pretty sharp. You guys keep coming here, after all.
2. My dad always uses the expression, “Are you out of your gourd?” when either myself or my brother do something particularly stupid (like take a photo of an owl and a gourd regarding each other). He means “out of your mind,” of course, but whatever.
So! To keep those wise little gourds of yours entertained over the weekend, please review these past posts, and know that we will be back on Monday with more fun stuff!
