Today when I went to crank up the umbrella that shades my study window, I found that in the week I was off in New Orleans, a couple of local residents had moved in. I like bats. They’re charming little things, and I was sorry to upset them today, waking them from their sleep and forcing them to go in search of other shelter.
So I’ve ordered a bat house for them. One that doesn’t suddenly crank open and leave them staring at the sunshine.
