Ready or not fall is on it's way. HOORAY!!! Now let's get this straight, I LOVE summer! I have never been a fan of fall because it's Alvin's busy season. When you are in the rice industry, it's seven days a week of work, work, work. That's right, our running around completely comes to a halt during the months of September, October and runs into November. YUK!!! You would think after thirty-six years of this I would get used to it. NO WAY!!!! I love being with my main squeeze and harvest always get in the way of being with my bestest buddy. I'll just stay busy with our grandbabes and stay in the sky more often.
So with that said.....this is what I did yesterday. I know it may be a little early but, I was in the mood for a change. I changed my wreaths from summer to fall. I haven't got the pumpkins, pansies and mums out (still a little early for that), but here is a preview of my wreaths.
My front door wreath...
My new fall wreath ( I love the gerber daisies)
This morning I hear a commotion, run to the back door, open it and Alvin yells, "get back Bec". Well I slam the door, look out the window and I see Alvin with the fish net swatting at something. Thinking this might be blog worthy, I run get the camera and this is what I see........
But wait a minute....is my hero holding his shirt collar. Honey, it's a bat not a vampire!
Somehow, two bats had gotten on our screened in porch. TWO BATS PEOPLE!!!!!! EEK!!!
I wish I had videoed Alvin. Bless his heart he was cracking me up, swatting and ducking, swatting and ducking. Oh, what a sight! Being the hero that he is, he captured them both. Thanks Alvin for the early morning entertainment.
After Alvin left, I went out on the back porch to investigate. I noticed something lying on the floor and I'm like, "what in the world"? Well, I'm as blind as a bat (no pun intended) so I go in the house, get my glasses, go out and what in the world, but a half eaten bat. YUCKO! BOSCO!!!! Where are you my sweet kitty! Yup, looks like my "fierce hunter" has been up to his old tricks! We are still wondering how the bats got on the SCREENED back porch. We do have a kitty door, but how in the world. I guess we'll never know, at least I hope not! YIKES!!
