I just heard about the earthquake. I'm so sorry. I know it's probably going to be a while before you come back to check that one inappropriate American's blog, I'm sure you have other things to do... but when you do, could you drop a line to let me know that you're okay?
I don't have that many fans as it is, ya know?
Anyway, I was able to find that owl again after a mini-adventure, and have been using it for all sorts of non-decorative purposes. You have to be okay, so you can see the pictures.
That's right, I'm bribing your well-being with owls. Is it working?
