ROAD KILL

SORRY, I COULDN'T RESIST. I KNOW THAT'S PRETTY CRUDE, BUT SOMETIMES MY MIND WORKS THAT WAY! I DID FIND THIS IN THE ROAD THOUGH! LAST FRIDAY, ON MY WAY TO SOME GARAGE SALES, I SAW THIS PIECE OF METAL (THAT HAD PROBABLY FALLEN OFF A CAR) IN A REALLY BUSY INTERSECTION NEAR MY HOUSE. IT WAS WAY TO BUSY TO STOP THE CAR AND PICK IT UP, SO I RELUCTANTLY WENT ON MY WAY. FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS I LOOKED FOR THIS PIECE OF METAL,... AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO PICK IT UP! NO LUCK! FINALLY, ON MY WAY TO MY SHOP ON SUNDAY, I GOT MY CHANCE! NO ONE WAS AROUND SO I JUMPED OUT OF MY CAR AND GRABBED IT! I WAS SO PLEASED BECAUSE JUST AS I THOUGHT! IT WILL MAKE A GREAT OWL'S BODY FOR MY NEXT METAL COLLAGE. YES!!!! IT TAKES SO LITTLE TO MAKE ME HAPPY. TRISH, HOW DO YOU TAKE YOUR COFFEE?

How you could tell from in the vehicle what this even looked like is amazing and a testament to your optical powers. But I do agree- it will be a cool collage part AND you are keeping it out of a dump somewhere....
