Archive Sunday – Exaggerating the Truth?

Ah, a big man I had to be

from myself, I had to flee

an exaggerated fool is me

An exaggeration is a truth that has lost its temper.

    Are you referring in part to the recent news article about the rare owl they found?/

    Reminds me of gossip… once spoken is very difficult to retract.
    Lovely owl. My son has some owl nesting boxes in his yard. Build a new one but the owl preferred an old rotting squirrel box. Show me a photo of the owl sitting on her eggs!
