My Owl Couple Has Been Busy And Has Anyone Else Been Enchanted By Mr Selfridge On Masterpiece Theatre?

First, I have to ask if anyone else is still watching Masterpiece Theatre now that Downton Abbey has wrapped up for the season, and they're presenting Mr Selfridge, with Jeremy Priven as Harry Gordon Selfridge and Zoë Tapper as Ellen Love, who I can hardly wait to see given the old heave-ho for being the most despicable "other woman".  It's a tribute to Priven's talent that you still care about what happens to Selfridge, his family, and his store after watching him prance around with Miss Love.  Try it and let me know.
 I have not seen my owls in a while, and certainly never expected to see them during the day, so was I ever surprised by her at 11 this the morning.  For weeks, I had been trying to figure out what they were doing, so I went to the best source for information on all things Oklahoma - Ron and Amy from the pool at the Y.  Amy advised me to look around for an old bird's nest left by another bird, or the hollow of a tree, or an old stump.  And this old stump is where the nest is.  If you look at the picture below you see on the left the "horns" of the female sticking out at the top.  It appears that very soon we will hear the pitter patter of little wings!


  1. Wow, little baby owl-lets! Hope you can get a photo when they arrive; you will feel like a Grandma!

    1. I'll be standing on my porch with camera ready.

    1. I hope they made it through that storm last night. The Mom is out drying her feathers this morning.

  3. I like owls a lot. Hope you get to see the babies.

    As for tv, no haven't seen the show. I'll check to see what time it comes on here.


  4. If you like the Downton Abbey type of thing, you will probably like this. Sunday nights in Tulsa where I am right now.
