Adventures with Mel and Syd

Surprise-to strike or occur to with a sudden feeling of wonder or astonishment.

“Expect nothing.
 Live frugally on surprise.” ― Alice Walker
Many of us were surprised last night  with a Owl visit (9:37pm) to the outside if the box.

Again it goes back to just who this Owl is!

and yes then the inside of the box when the owl stepped in.

Mel or Syd or a stranger on the palm cam.
