One Batty Family

As always - The Cast of Characters

Me (The Daddy)
The Bean: Age 7
The Butterfly: Age 6
The Darling Wife
The Buffett Puppy

The DW is in the Halloween spirit.  OK, The Bean and The Butterfly are in the Halloween spirit and The DW's just along for the ride.

We have spider web stuff on our bushes.  Now that it's rained, it looks like someone rolled our house.

We have skeletons and witches pasted in our windows.  At any given time, one or more of them could be drooping to the floor.

We have ghosts the size of shuttlecocks hanging from our trees.  Some are about 3 feet off the ground.  The Buffett Puppy hasn't noticed them yet, but he will.

And now for the bats -

The Butterfly has determined that bats are cuddly little creatures who wouldn't hurt a fly "except for that's what they eat".

The DW bought a set of 3 bats - one big, one medium & one small.  "It's a bat family," The DW explains.

"Nnnooooooo!!!!" The Butterfly screams.


"That's not a bat family!"

"Sure it is," The DW soothes.  "See - Daddy, Mommy, Baby."

"That's not a bat family.  The baby bat needs a baby sister."


"Baby Sister!! Baby Sister!! Baby Sister!!"

Back to Target it is...


  1. We got a pumpkin carved yesterday while Benji busied himself either trying to stab the pumpkins a la Jack in the Shining, running amuck with carving tools, and pulling the spiders out of our trees. Now we have dead spiders on their backs by the trees- very halloween
