[quote], I have a small colony of bats who made a home in one of my dormers, [/quote] We had a colony in our carport for years...we all loved hearing/watching them leave at dusk and return at dawn. Never worried about rabies. Those little guys sure made a fuss when I had the smoker going!...

[quote]afraid of being alone with Trump?[/quote] Not afraid of Trump, just wanted corroboration the next time Trump pushed/crossed the ethical line. Most of you will not believe his testimony Thursday so it would be helpful to have someone to echo his comments/reports....

re: Lindsey Graham worries Comey testimony could be 'hit job' - islandtiger
[quote]Choose what you're gonna stand for and stick by it or get out of the way. It's called having character.[/quote] That is different from "picking sides." I agree with the desire for our politicians to have character, but with Trump changing positions as often as he changes his socks, it's k...

No, they actually had about $1000 left over that they applied to their honeymoon.
