edmondsallan - Hello - I have another imaginary companion who I haven't mentioned . He has been around along long time . In fact I don't think he ever ever Dies . ( Now thats something ) what does he do-- you may well ask . Thats very hard to define . to get at that we have to sort look at what position he holds in our personal family rankings. Well I know he is over a 100 years old . He is pure
" White " in colour , walks & struts like a king !! When he travels or is going somewhere . -- He has own specialized transport that is invisible - He can be talking to you ( in his special language that only our personnal family understand ) and if he doesn't stop off some where to give other of his staff instructions around the world . - Will be talking to you , the next minute - say London - How he does it all none of us know . I first came in contact with him when I was 10 years old , my mum & dad had just broken up . my brother and I were in this boarding house of some stranger . When my brother started talking to what I thought was himself , but wasn't . I asked him who he was talking to with tears rolLing down my cheeks & he says
" THE WISE WHITE OWL . HE LOOKS AFTER EVERY BODY IN THE FAMILY - " I says - can you see him - Jack says - Sometimes usually when you are
a sleep . Will he be here when I go to sleep ? I ask big brother . Of cause he will but you can talk to him any time . He is always there looking after us . One thing you have to know !! If he tells you what to do , you must do it . He is like Our " Dad " but knows more . His advice - or if you are missing mum - or anything- or me - talk to him on anything . He is very good at making all come right . I talk to him all the time . Ok . later somtimes when " Jack " was trying to get me to be better mannered , clean my teeth and was being a bit of who are you to tell me what to do attitude . he would say " listen - mr white owl is telling us to stop arguing and clean our teeth and get to bed " What ever that --- " b` owl " said something I would obey and have been doing so ever since even today . Funny thing , He also many many many many times did so with my children also . Only just recently my daughter I felt was going to make a financial mistake with her personal finances . I had tried and could see I was failing in trying to change her decision . Following a couple of days . Honorable daughter rang me and said she had taken " the white wise owls advice " and all would be well . She is now 31 . that damn bird certainly has all my respect . Oh --- you want to know what ? " the financial decision ? " Ok ok - The wrong decision was kicked out , the decision she made was spot on and better than mine . So you can see how " the white wise owl " works. and guess what . I think he also controls " thee cat !!! " ok lets hit the pedal to the metal again
