Am I Going Bats Again?

Long-time readers of this page know that our house, the one that we moved into in May 2000, has had a live bat within its walls in 2002. And 2003. And 2004. And 2005. And 2006. And 2007,despite efforts in the last several years to patch the places on the roofline where we suspect the creatures are getting into the living quarters.

Well, it's the end of October, it's cold, and it's already SNOWED in Albany this week, FCOL, so I can say with some degree of confidence: in 2008, we were bat-free! Hurray!

Since it's Halloween, Lydia's going trick-or-treating with some kids from church. (No, I don't worry about these "pagan" rituals threatening my Christian faith or whatnot.) We DO have to make sure we go through what she gets to pick out those candies with nuts or peanuts, since she is allergic to the latter, and the former are often processed in the same place as the latter. This means that her poor mother, my poor wife, will have to eat all the Snickers bars and Reese's Pieces.

Meanwhile, thanks to Noggin, this is Lydia's and my favorite Halloween song this year, based on something Evanier hates, but which I actually like in small quantities; Lydia has never had them.
