Wow, November! Woke up to fog and a skunk in the yard. Luckily Garden Dog was unaware as he is apt to get too close to the striped "kitty". Halloween party was fun with hosts Elmer Phudd and his wifely wabbit. I was indeed a logger, note owl feathers coming from the lunchbox, "save a logger, eat an owl" written below. Actually, the Spotted Owl saved our local national forests. The first succession, "old Growth" was being logged in the 70's and early 80's to pay the inbterest on the national debt. The Endangered Species listing of the owl slowed logging down before those forests were obliterated. It caused a re-examination of the issue of saving forest habitat. Tough decisions were made for Oregon'ts economy, but nice to have old trees to see once in awhile. The neighbor ladies got into the dress-up fun with me. There was a 1950's housewife, Little Eddie from Grey Gardens, and Mr.Darcy's sister-in-law.
