    I'm sure. Well, all the more reason to get the job done within the next month and a half.

    Yes. If I remember correctly. My memory is not what it once was due to not sleeping for 3 straight months last year.

    I had flying squirrels in my last house, which is probably almost as bad as bats.

    Oh, no! :( Prayers that the bats find a better place to take up residence soon! [:D]

    I guess it wouldn't really be spring without the bats taking up residence again. :p

    In all seriousness, I wish you the best of luck in getting rid of them!

    Peeps and jellybeans are the only Easter candies I can still have, but I'll only eat Peeps if they're melted into goo...

    Well, I saw a lunar eclipse for the first time in my life. :cool: Another thing to cross off the bucket list. Goodnight!

    I saw it just as the last sliver was disappearing, but as soon as the blood moon appeared the clouds got too thick to see through and they've been that way ever since. I was hoping to see more of it but at least I caught a glimpse.

    I'll be preoccupied with resurrection. Both Jesus' and a family of formerly displaced bats.

    Speaking of which...
    BATASTROPHE '14 - Day One: Meet the Neighbors:
    At approximately 20:00 last evening, our lodgers returned from their diaspora and got down to business making themselves at home. In my home. Again.

    My wife disrupted my happy evening of 76ers' domination and Star Wars chatroom moderation to inform me of a great disturbance in the Force walls. After spending the previous summer living with the equivalent of a nearly-nonstop exorcism taking place in the wall above our headboard, our ceiling, and the wall between our bedroom and bathroom due to government legislation (passed by people who were clearly out of their minds and elected by incompetents) which prevents removal of bats between 1 June and 1 September for varying reasons... and paying thousands of dollars for our soffet and roof to be sealed... we were planning a pleasant summer of actually being able to sleep, only to be thwarted by the prophecy I had been warned with on a consistent basis as a child... we would be tuning in again... same bat-time... same bat-channel...

    I can only assume that, on Day One, it was Mr. Bat or possibly Pop-Pop Bat who arrived to represent the family during settlement. There was no chirping, because the kids have not arrived and did not require being homeschooled all day long nor hollered at to go to sleep all night long. Instead, either Mr. Bat or his bat-in-law spent the night (what I can only assume from the racket was) moving the family piano to and fro looking for the perfect placement for it while dragging crates of their family heirlooms from behind my headboard to the wall adjoining the bathroom. I am quite sure he hung dozens of family photos or other framed art on the walls and has yet to discover those 'command' "no nailing required" wall hooks, so he simply did the old fashioned way until approximately 3 in the morning. There must be a fair amount of remodeling being done as there was a nearly non-stop amount of what I can only imagine was the wall being scraped and scratched to replace the wallpaper or paint or whatever they furbished their residence with last year.

    The call is in to the removal squad. If they fail to get this done by the legislative handcuffing date, I have decided to host a reggae dancehall in our house on a daily basis with air-horn cans being fired off in rapid succession. Big ups, bats! Gwaan mek wi mek fi haffi dead!

    Hopefully you'll be able to resolve that... permanently, this time.

    Also, I already see that I'm just going to love the new "Is it tomorrow yet" thread. The repository of all 7SA madness.

    It was a staff decision that, since the animals can't help themselves from peeing and crapping all over the place, we needed to drop some newspaper in the corner. Go mad, lads & lasses... a thread with padded walls has been provided.

    is there some kind of high frequency sound device that you could drive the bats out with?

    Bats. Just like last summer. And, sonic devices do not work at all... aside from infuriating all dogs within 6,500 feet.
