As I go back in time I can well remember how my daddy loved to hunt and fish. Quite often he would come home from a hunting trip with some kind of wild animal to train for a pet.
I remember a particular time when he brought home a baby owl. He had the little owl stuffed in his coat pocket. He took him out and perched him on the back of a chair. He was really a cute little thing.
The owl became a pet and he began to take interest in everything that moved. We would pick at him a lot like mean kids do. One day, I got down and looked him right in his eyes and blew my breath in his face. This evidently made him angry, for he jumped in my face, attacking, pecking and scratching me. I finally got him off and he flew to the top of the window, as usual.
Here came Daddy to see what mischief was going on. After I told him he got the little owl down and perched him on the back of the chair. “Now,” he said to me, “Would you like to blow in his face again?’
Of course, I assured him I would not. He just gave a big laugh. I think he was the only one who thought it was funny.
