Owl in the house

This is a metal owl sculpture that came from my grandparents house.  It’s Casey’s from way back when, we did a raffle type thing for all of their grandchildren when we were younger, to divy up all the cool stuff they had.  Funny thing though is my grandparents accidentally gave this away to their neighbors.  My dad asked them if they had it because it seemed like the only place it could have disappeared to, and he had a letter from my grandparents that was signed from years ago saying that it was supposed to be given to Casey.  So right now its at our house as you can see, and next time Casey comes up, he will be surprised by it.  It’s pretty awesome, I’m jealous!
