500 Books Signed
January 17, 2011
There are many that claim the owl box should be cleaned out between broods but as this photo taken this morning clearly demonstrates the owls are quite capable to do it themselves. By the way, this is the first photo I have taken since becoming ill three weeks ago; I just have not felt good. Hopefully, I am on my way to recovery. It felt wonderful to get some sunshine and fresh air this morning.
I have signed just over 500 Molly and McGee books and they should be mailed sometime tomorrow according to Eric. It was like the night before Christmas, it was difficult to go to bed and I was up by 4 AM, but then I had to wait on everyone else to get up and around. The books arrived earlier than expected and this time they flew right though Customs but don’t get too excited just yet.
“Please remember, Eric and Lorien are having their baby this week, and won’t be able to look into your orders. Please be patient. Media Mail takes one to three weeks and some books won’t go out until the last week in January.” What I am trying to say is don’t send Eric any emails asking about your book(s) until the end of February… Please. But if you are one the lucky ones and your book arrives sooner than later let then everyone know what you think of the book here on the blog.
The game plan is for me to sign the rest off the books this coming weekend at Janet’s house (10 pallets are stored in her garage) and they will be mailed the following week with the help of volunteers. This is a good time to order your book.
Several have asked if Molly has any eggs since the owl box in Oceanside has two eggs. I don’t know, I don’t have any of the cameras are hooked up, but I don’t think so because Molly is standing up in the photo I took this morning and is more to the front of the box. By the way the owl box site in Oceanside is wonderful; it looks like they are taking the broadcast to the next level. Excellent owl box, excellent cameras, looks like HD and they seem to be wonderful people. http://www.ustream.tv/channel/owl-cam-oceanside-ca
