My son in law was working in the back yard when he said he felt like something was watching him. He looked up to see these guys staring at him. This was mid morning in the middle of Houston.

Now you know how much I would have loved that . Mesmerising.

We sat down to tea one evening only to see an owl sitting on a branch outside the window staring back at us. I became hooked on watching out for this birds every evening for ages.

Mum, I found the Lego! You were telling me it wasn’t there, but it was there!
Seven-year-old Sameer Anwar of Dunedin, in the south of New Zealand, inserted a tiny piece of Lego up his nose in 2018. Sameer’s father, Mudassir, and his wife became alarmed when their son told them he had lost a piece of Lego up his nose, and couldn’t find it. The concerned parents took their son to the GP, who was also unable to find, or remove it. The doctor advised them the piece would move through their son’s digestive tract, if it had even been there in the first place.
A bit extra...
In 2018 a team of doctors swallowed Lego and timed how long it took to pass through their bowels in an attempt to reassure concerned parents.

Hey LARAHTX well done you for checking in!

Are you still doing the Tex-Mex thing?

And how are you getting along in that 'strange' country?
