    I’m on the late show Carole, but I wanted to say thanks for including me on your list. I am truly honored. I do so very much enjoy your blog and following your tweets. Lately I have found myself so wrapped up in the owl situation that I’ve fallen behind…and neglected paying my car registration (oops!).

    But thanks for all your support in spreading the word as I/we need the help. The fight will continue for statewide protections!


    .-= Scott´s last blog ..Calling on Attorney General to Investigate Lack of Owl Conservation =-.

    • Carole Brown says

      Scott, I continue to hold out hope that you will find some way to protect “your’ owls. You’ve been fighting the good fight for a long time, I know, and I’m hoping that you will find a supportive ear!
