The Little Silver Owl

This little fellow is made of one ounce of solid sterling silver. My mother got it in Mexico a very long time ago and when she died it came to live with me. It’s funny about owls, they are viewed in various cultures as being either good omens or bad ones. Thats what I like about them. They remind me that events can almost always be viewed from either a positive or negative side. It up to me to decide which one.

By the way my tiny friend is a very optimistic and positive owl.
