Guaranteed Ugly

My new favorite term. It means trading one ugly for another. I saw it on another blog today. Ironically I had a guaranteed ugly show up in my life just after reading.

Today my guaranteed ugly:

I traded house sparrows building a nest right above my front door. Saving future neighbors from being attacked. Sorry Kim.

For a creepy, scary, old lady lawn ornament owl that is supposed to keep rabid sparrows away.

I only open my front door if I have to. Then I come back inside and hyperventilate. Eventually I will move the owl around the corner. I just need the swallows to know who pays the mortgage around here. It's a creepy fake owl.

A lady I work with has one of those creepy owls she puts on her car hood during the day. Go figure!

LOL- thats pretty funny. I think you should keep the owl around and dress it up like they do out east with geese. Oh my goodness you could start a new trend.

Loving that term and sorry about the ugly owl. I hope he does his job well too.

Love the new front door! More photos of the new digs please!

Whoa! This blog looks just like my old one! It's on a completely
different subject but it has pretty much the same layout
and design. Wonderful choice of colors!
