Bruce is Back

It is the first sign that hot weather is here to stay. Bruce has arrived.



The cool thing about Bruce (Bruce as in Bruce Wayne), he chills alone. He's a rogue bat. The black sheep of his bat family. This is the fourth summer he has returned. He'll be hanging out until at least October. I always have to check myself so that I don't reach up and pat his little head.

I thought if you saw a robin(bird) that was a sign that good weather was on its way; bats? hmmmm, I'm not so sure!!! YIKES!!!

That is so cool! Is this the 3rd summer? I wonder how long they live.

I have no idea how long they live and I'm pretty sure it's the same guy every year. A few times I've pulled dead bats out of the pool and just pray that it isn't Bruce. So far, he's one smart boy. Maybe I should get some nail polish and mark his back so I know it's him :)

He's very cute. Looks fuzzy. Is that his winter coat?

How cool is that! Your own bat. He must like it there to keep returning.

I'd have a really hard time resisting a pat! That is really cool that he's come four years.
