ASK OTUS SOME SUBTERFUGE IS IN ORDER SO OTUS CAN ENJOY A CELERY FIELDS VISIT WITHOUT BECOMING MORE THAN HIS HOSTESS' GUEST Dear Readers, I have received a Halloween invitation to fly the friendly skies of the Celery Fields. I am torn between elation and trepidation. My hostess is Belle, the Celery Fields Barn Owl (Tyto alba). Her name means "beautiful" in French.
