Victoria has it all. Flowers, boats, owls (see below) … and a pumpkin patch. Of course we have to take the munchkin so she can pick her own pumpkin.
My last post was a picture of an owl in downtown Victoria. There are many myths about owls. Here’s what my friend in Nigeria had to say.
Well, some people — my dad’s mother included — believe that the sudden appearance of an owl anywhere near a person’s home is a sign of bad luck or impending doom. Not everyone gets to see the sign. As for my grandma, she believed occultists/those who practiced juju used these birds as a travel medium to see their enemies or hunt their victims.
And, after tomorrow, we turn our attention to Christmas.
