“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

  11. Gee, it's unbelievable all the broken things I see this morning ! Now even snail shells. I just came from a broken haert ! Finally my pictures are too serious and boring ! I should have digged in my garden to find a skeleton with broken bones ! Then at least I had something special !
