So the other day we find out our library is having a special Harry Potter week. Why Harry Potter week when the last movie came out last year? Beats me, but whatever. Daisy and I are huge fans so we checked it out.
So the first event (the other 2 are movie showings on other days) was this guy who's hobby is training hawks, falcons, and other birds of prey. What does that have to do with Harry Potter? I have no idea, I guess the library staff was like "Owls (like Harry's pet Hedwig) hawks, same difference". Despite it being really not Harry Potter, it was rather interesting. He brought his own pet red-tailed hawk Trudy for showing.
He had Trudy tied on a rope (so she didn't fly around) but she was pretty obedient. She did freak out when the kids up front were told they could leave at the end of the event and they all stomped on the floor on their way out. He did teach a lot about the hobby, and an interesting tale of how he managed to find Trudy in the first place.
Daisy then wanted to check out the little Harry Potter display downstairs. She snagged a crossword puzzle (too easy by the way, and we found a typo) before she got to the sign in sheet.
There wasn't much to see. Just some made-up potions,and emblems.
And some Harry Potter clothes and books.
And a deatheater costume, and some herbology stuff.
I then took Daisy to Longhorn Steakhouse. She literally has been begging me to go for months, and months. I'm a vegetarian, so a steak-house is not my first choice, but they serve stuff other than steak obviously. They have some pretty good honey-baked wheat bread as a free filler-er-up while you wait for your meal.
It wasn't a half bad place, and our waitress was better than some in other joints around here. Never seen Daisy so thrilled to go to a restaurant though. It's a good place, but I doubt it qualifies as five-stars on that rating system they always talk about.
