Today, Kevin and I were both working outside at the front of the house. Kevin was working on the new carport wooden doors and I was painting the house. I had made a playlist on our iPod and I convinced Kevin to give it a try. If he didn't like my selection after a few songs then he could pick whatever he wanted. He was holding out much hope... he thought I'd pick soft ballads and earth muffin folky stuff, of which he's not a fan. To his surprise, as much as he hates to admit it, he liked the line-up... so he turned up the volume. It's rare that we have the boom-box blaring, but today, well it was sunny and it felt right... so, yeah, it was pretty loud. All of a sudden Kevin sees this poor bat crawling on the driveway. We must have woken him or he fell out of a tree from the vibration. We don't know. It was really interesting to see him crawl... he had a really hard time flying. He had really sharp teeth andHe didn't seem injured, but maybe the sunlight was zapping his energy or maybe the music was disorienting for him. Who knows. Kevin scooped him up and put him a dark place near the rocks near the river. A few hours later, Kevin checked on him and he was gone... hopefully all is well for batman.
