    1. I had to laugh. Of course, he's used to this zoo. He probably wouldn't blink if a flock of owls waltzed through the house. :)

  3. Owls of laughter!! LOL
    Really good and funny!

    I can honestly say I've never tasted or seen a Tootsie Pop!
    Are they nice? and do they come in different flavours?

    1. They are a sucker or lollipop with a tootsie roll in the middle. (chocolate). And yes, they come in different flavors.
      The owl is the Tootsie Pop mascot, so that is the connection. And Spencer loves them. It's the only candy he eats.
      And it's been a long standing joke on this blog to show how he eats several at once, like the photo shows. :)

    2. Thanks for the background!
      Spencer is quite a character isn't he!
      He is definately more prominent than his brothers.
      Late to the party tonight - have been writing.
      Do the other boys like Tootsie Pops as well?

    3. Harry does! Alex does not! haha.

    4. Very strange that their tastes differ so much

    5. They all love trains. After that, everything is different. :)

    6. So do they like travelling on trains with you or is it model trains they like?
      I've still got my train set when I was a kid!!
      Poor Jonathan missed out because I forgot I had it!
      Maybe Peter can have it and Jon will enjoy it as well.

    7. Oh, they like both. And they love old documentaries about trains on DVD. They have quite a collection.

    8. Interesting!
      Near us about 3 miles away is a place called Bitton
      and some amateur enthusiasts have restored some
      old steam engines and they are great working along some old railway lines.

      Well talking about steam! I've run out of it! LOL
      Just written a post and that's me lot! Goon night!

    9. We took the boys on a train ride and to visit some train museums last summer and they loved it! Maybe some day we'll do a longer trip on a train where you sleep and dine on it, too. They would like that, I think! ;)

      sweet dreams!

    10. Now look here!
      I just switched the computer on because I had a 'positive' hunch that a lass from Ohio might have to sat something!
      And she did!! Not a negative cell in her blood! Seriously I bet you wonder what your blood group is. Was there no mention of it when you had the kids?

      Delete
    11. Oh, maybe...but that was decades ago! :) I'm sure it's on my medical chart at the doctor's office. No negative cells here! How ironic if my blood type was negative! lol....

      Delete
    12. I'm sure it must be positive.
      There is not a trace of negativity within you!

    1. I should have read your reply above.... I would have the answer...three at a time!!! That's even funnier.

      Delete
    2. Yes, three or more! Before he eats them down, it's hard to get the bunch in his mouth. Oh dear. What a sight. haha.

    2. I think we don'have here these Tootsie pops:(

      Delete
    3. Really? Aw. Do you have Tootsie Rolls? I don't like Tootsie Rolls at all, but the suckers are good.

      Delete
    4. Nope why we don't have all these lovely treats?
      Fortunately we have all M&M eggs and others:)

      Delete
    5. Oh, well M&Ms are better, anyway! haha.

  6. Hahaha! Very cute♥️
    Cheers!

  7. Do you know that I don't think anyone would even bat an eyelid if you announced that a fleet of owls was moving in with you! However, Spencer eating 4 lollies at once, well, that has us in stitches! He must love them - lollies, not owls!

    Twitt twoo, goodnight to you! xx

    1. So true. I don't think The Mister would blink, either!

  8. Ha, Spencer is adorable with his Tootsie Pops!

    You inspired me to look up Tootsie Pops on Wikipedia. There have been studies by students at Cambridge and Harvard, among other places, to try to answer the question of how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop. I'm guessing that Spencer, like most of us, bites into the center long before it would take to keep licking to the center.

    1. I remember as a kid doing it and it took 369 licks! haha. I wonder if that's typical. And Spencer rarely bites them. He eats them down to almost nothing and then saves the sticks in a row in his bedroom. Ugh. lol....

  9. Betsy, I was wondering if this was a picture or you actually have owls! I read the other comments and figured it out. Spencer picked a good snack to like - Tootsie Pops are pretty good. Will there be some in his Easter basket? Read your sidebar. - I am liking the snow, too.

    1. Those owls look pretty laid back.
      Just going on a sucker attack!
      If they paid Spencer in candy
      He would think that was dandy!
