    I Have A Phobia About Birds, Etc.

    I will never forget the day that a bat flew in during construction on my home! I am terrified of birds (I know! But Steve Irwin was, too!), so imagine me with a BAT in my house! In hindsight, it was hysterical and my kids still remember that day. My girls were about 3 and 5...

    I Rememer It Like It Was Yesterday...

    ... but it was back in 1983. We had friends over for a bbq. I put the kids to bed and shut off the lights. I swear I felt something whoosh by me. I thought it was a bird. I looked for it a little bit but I was tired so I went to bed. The next afternoon about 2:30, my baby girl...

    Me Too, Me Too!

    It's still there!  I keep it next to my bed in case someone breaks into my house.  ;) I love bats!  I think they're adorable.  I'd like to build a bathouse in my backyard.
