It is still bugging me about the OWL

Do You Remember the WOWL Owl?

The owl was an interesting thing to me. We did not come to Florence very often, only when we had to for school clothes. We came to pay the taxes once a year. Now it seems that it is nothing for us to shop every single day. The owl had one green eye and one red eye. I was told that if the red light was on someone had died in a car accident. I don't know this for fact, but am going to do some digging to find out. Maybe it was just an urban legend that my aunt and grandmother dreamed up. (to be continued)

I can't find a picture of the sign or even an artical as to what happened to it. Now a comment has got me searching for the Coke sign; always something to make me wonder. I really do wonder a bunch. I wondered a bunch as a child. If the light was red on the owls eye I wondered who it was, if I knew them, where it happened and if they were old or younger person.  Nosey was something that I was; that is why I consider all that I know "Gathering Life." I am really amazed how with age we get wiser. Wise as an owl; dang what happened to that owl. I even have considered an owl a good luck charm for me. Want to know my crazy logic for this. When I was a senior in highschool I got second runner up in the LHS Bands beauty pagenent. I saw an owl fly over the night before and gave that owl credit for bringing me luck. Way crazy I know, but shoot the best things are really the crazy things.
