Who We Are

Yea! It's the Weekend!

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim, here with my big brother Dave!  Even with the Independence Day holiday tossed in there, it was quite a full week here at Ao4 Headquarters and we are really glad the weekend is here!  Not only are our temperatures supposed to come down into the 90s (32-37℃) but there is a small chance we could see some rain tonight!  Given our drought, both changes would be most welcome!

So... the three of us would like to wish you a most enjoyable weekend!

"Three of us?!?  Oh... you mean us guys and Mom?"

Oh.  No.  In all the excitement, I forgot to tell everyone.  Bart's back!

"Good eeeeeevening!"

For those readers not familiar with Bart, he's a little brown bat who spends his Summers with us!  He lives on the underside of our upper deck.  (For a better explanation, please see this very first post we made about him.)  Bart doesn't bother us and we don't bother him.  Mom washes all of the guano he leaves into our Red Prince Weigela every day - and she credits its fullness and beautiful blooms to the fertilizing power of Bart!  The real reason we love having Bart (and his friends) around is that he can eat 1,200 mosquito-sized insects an hour!!!   Go, Bart, GO!

"We Bart!"

So from the three of us - have a great weekend!

Play bows,


  1. Could you please tell Bart to send a friend to our house? We can't sit outside in the evening b/c of all the mosquitos!

    What a cool friend!


  2. Ooh, Bart sounds like a great friend to have! Do you rent him out?

  3. Friends like Bart are great to have hanging around for the summer. Have a great weekend boys.


  4. Bart and his Batty furends and Rels do a WONDERFUL job of BOTH EATING Icky BUGS and makin Super Plant Foods.

    I am sooooo with you about needing a CHANGE.. my computer says 100 degrees right now... and it will climb more soon... and NO RAIN added to this... is leaving our garden in SAD Shape.

    Let's put our paws together and see if we can't get some MORE Rain and some Lower Temps..

  5. We're glad Bart keeps going to your house in the summer so he eats all those bugs! You two boys are just so handsome. We love your gorgeous eyes!

  6. we are glad Bart is safe with you (and mom says he is kinda cute too)... we could use a bug eater here!! try to stay cool.

  7. hee hee! so cool that Bart is back :) our mom has been wanting to get a, um, Bart house for our yard. We'd love a few of those mosquito eating machines here! have a cool weekend!

  8. Wah! I want a Bart too. Does he have other family memebers he can dispense with? We are starting to have flies and insects around here too.

    Kisses!!! Happy weekend.


  9. We hope you get your cooler temps and your rain, guys! Our bats are back too and you already know that our mom isn't happy about it. Hopefully they stay outside this year!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  10. I am with the rest, I would love Bart to come live with us. You guys are so great to let him move in, most folks get all eebeegeebee with a bat as a tenant.


  11. where can I get a Bart? My MOM is allergic to mosquitoes. Have a wonderful weekend. Hope you get your rain. I just had a short thunderstorm with some rain.

  12. Bart is back!
    I am sure you are enjoying having him there again!
    Happy Saturday!
    Kisses and hugs
