Last night, I had a big scare. While I was watching a rerun of Friends, I got up to go let our dogs go outside, when for some reason I looked up and saw something small and black, attached to the ceiling beam. "Tony! I need for you to come look at something!"
"What is it?" He half-hollered, from his office.
"I'm not sure. Either someone has planted a bug to spy on us or it's a Bat."
When Tony walked into the big room, I pointed upward, Tony looked up, and said, "It's a Bat. And it's a big one. too." Then Tony walked past me.
While Tony was getting the step stool, tucked in-between the dryer and the utility room wall, I was trying to decide if I should faint. "Be careful, Tony. Here's a dish towel for you to use." (Please note that I gave him an old towel and not my new dish towel that I had bought earlier, at Texas Bad Girlz.)
Then I grabbed my camera and took these two pictures:
Then I put my camera down and put my hands to my mouth, because the Bat took off and started flying all around the big room, with Roy, Belle and Beau jumping up into the air trying to catch it, as it nose dived past them and me.
As the Bat did numerous fly-bys, I grabbed my camera again and I tried to take several pictures of it, as Tony opened our front door, in hopes that it would leave. Then when the Bat and I nearly had a head-on collision—I skipped into the bathroom and called our dogs to come with me.
A few seconds later, Tony half-hollered, "You can come out, now. He's gone. He just flew out the front door."
Hearing his good news, all of us immediately returned to the big room and the rest of our evening was uneventful, thank goodness. Anyway those pictures that I took of the bat flying around came out either fuzzy or out of focus.
Today has been great and that's about it for tonight.
