Charlie Visits BC Wine Museum

The Okanagan Valley is known for its many vineyards and wineries. Macramé Owl Charlie was itching to get out this past weekend, so we took a brief tour of the BC Wine Museum and VQA Wine Shop at the Laurel Packing House.

Charlie doesn’t drink (he simply can’t – he’s a Macramé Owl for crying out loud!), but he is nonetheless interested in local history.

Macramé Owl Sanctuary Team – Manager and Director, Annie Zed, acted as the responsible adult companion on this excursion.

Charlie was particularly fond of the champagne bottle machine.

My,what big kegs they had.

There were plenty of information stations, but Charlie wasn’t bothered to read them. He preferred to just hang around and stare off into the distance.

They had bottles upon bottles of all kinds of charmingly named labels, like: Dirty Laundry, Blasted Church OMG, and Lost Inhibitions: Tell Me How You Really Feel.

Charlie wanted his photo taken from every angle. Typical of the Whimsical Macramé Owl variety, he can be quite cheeky and persistent about getting his own way.

Afterwards, members of the team sampled beverages and delicious food at the BNA Brewing Company and Eatery just a block up from the museum.

All in all, it was an enjoyable outing and both Annie and Charlie were happy at the end of the day.

Perkins Arrives

Windblown and somewhat discombobulated, Perkins arrived safe and sound at the Macramé Owl Sanctuary today. His journey began before Christmas when he set out from Valleyford, Washington, USA on one way ticket with only a brown paper bag tied in festive string, and a Macramé Showcase magazine to keep him entertained.

Macrame Owl Perkins

The Macramé Owl Sanctuary Team (MOST) were a bit concerned about delays often occurring when travelling during the holiday season. Over the last week, we had been hearing night time owl hoots in the distance, so we did sense that Perkins was near. Last night’s fierce storms across the United Kingdom caused us considerable alarm. Around midday, the rains subsided, and we searched the area for any sightings. It was then that Perkins was spotted. He had become stuck on one of the nearby fences that had been blown about by the 90km winds.

Despite being rather stiff and stunned, we managed to pry him through the gate.

After a soothing cup of tea indoors, clearly still “out of sorts”, Perkins was left to rest comfortably on the sofa.

Initial Assessment and History
Curious onlookers have been spying on this admission more than any other. Astonishing specimen Madeleine has already caused a stir among sanctuary residents, with her “come to barn” eyes. Whispers of “your nest or mine?” have been heard, and we are vigilant that she may need protection from harassment from some of the males. She clearly possesses magical qualities, and her tassels are outstanding.
