The one about my Raven
This came in the mail yesterday---bought him on eBay. I have wanted one of these for a while now. It took me several years to find one that I liked. It is a little startling actually, to see him sitting there in the living room before realizing he's fake. About ten years ago I saw a stuffed one in a museum in Mesa Verde, Colorado. That one was so big and black and beautiful and cool-looking. Mine is just for Halloween. I am sure I would be thought of as weird if I left him out all year (and he'd get dusty and I hate to dust).
