    Oh, we have 'em. We just don't like to talk about 'em.

    1. All-night hoot-fest before we left for our vacation in Orlando. Lucky for us we drove instead of flying. The date: 9/11/2001.
    1. Had a low-flyer sail inches over my head one night (those suckers are big up close!) and head out into the woods, where he let up an enormous racket. 3 days later the US invaded Iraq.
    1. Got woken up out of a sound sleep once at 2AM by one carrying on out in the woods. And let me tell you, an owl carrying on by the light of the moon at 2AM will send chills up anyone's spine. Woke up the next morning and my beloved pup Junior Bodine was dead. (he was 95 in dog years, and it was a good death, but still ...)

    So every time I hear those SOBs, I assume some random Hell is going to break loose.
