Let me fill our newer readers in...
"Here's the scoop!"
For many years now, we've had a bat who makes his home hanging on the underside of our upper deck. We've named him Bart and he seems to come back year after year. (You can follow the hyperlinks for the bigger story!) Last year, he hung out just like previous years, then the exciting thing was that he seemed to have a girlfriend!!! We were really happy for him - especially since Bart alone can eat 1,200 mosquito-sized insects per hour. Think of all the bugs the happy couple could have chowed down on! But alas, she left him. Or as Ammy said, it seemed to be a "one day stand". One "day". Ha roo roo roo... you know... because he's nocturnal. Oh, that Amber!
We hadn't mentioned Bart this year, so it was mighty sweet of Angus' mom to ask after him! He is indeed back! Dave sent Mom out to see about getting a photo of Bart - and here's what she got:
"Good eeeeeven--HEY! It's the middle of the afternoon!
What's a guy got to do to get a little shut-eye around here?!?!"
Sorry, Bart. The paparazzi are everywhere!
Anyway, as you can see, he's doing quite well! We truly appreciate you asking after him, Mom-o-Angus! AND we appreciate Bart eating all those mosquitoes!!!
Bart's not the only extended family member I'd like to tell you about today, though! Guess who's got big news?
"Somebunny's had a baby!"
That's right! It would appear that Oswald and Mrs. Lapin have had a little one. Let me introduce you to Osletto!
He's a little shy. Except around me and Zimmie. C'mon, little one! I'll make sure no one hurts you!
He's growing like crazy! He lives under one of the bushes in our front yard. Zim and I make sure to check on him when we go out. He's smaller than my stuffed puppy!
I hope you enjoyed meeting our extended family members! We're glad they're here!
