Blackhawks win! What an ending to game 6. Lots of excitement in the Niemuth house tonight.
Speaking of excitement Louise had a couple sleepless nights over the weekend at the cottage. She woke up on Friday night with “that feeling” that she wasn’t alone. She flipped on the light to find a bat circling the room. She went to get Scotty to do something about it. The bat apparently knew Scotty was afraid of it. One bombing run at Scotty and as he describes it “I ran from the room squealing like a school girl.” What to do? Louise went a woke AJ up to get her tennis racket and baseball glove. AJ’s last words of encouragement to her mother were “leave my light off and close the door.” The tennis racket and baseball glove didn’t work so we wait until morning. In the morning Aunt Holly is summoned to dispatch the bat. Apparently she has more experience with bats and tennis rackets.
Saturday night Louise is getting ready for bed and another bat is circling the room. She texts Scotty and AJ who are out at a local establishment with friends recounting the story from the night before. The text was perfectly timed by Louise, the response from her children was basically “good luck with the bat.” So the bat disappears and Louise sleeps in the basement. No more bats until Sunday Night
Sunday night Scotty goes to change the laundry and hollers I found the bat. Louise has gone back to Appleton by now so AJ and I go up stairs to see what is going on. The bat chases Scotty out of the laundry room and into his bedroom. Scotty realizes the bat is in the bedroom and runs out squealing again and hides in the bathroom. AJ opens the back door and after another lap of the bedroom the bat exits out the door. No further problems so far, I’ll keep you posted.
Louise’s first encounter with a bat was almost 30 years ago when we moved into our first house in Manawa. It was September and Aaron, our oldest, his birthday is today, was 3 months old. He was sitting, no sleeping in the baby swing while we moved stuff into the house. All of a sudden Louise screams and goes running from the living room hollering about a bat. She realizes Aaron is still in the swing in the living room and runs back in to save him from the bat. She went and hid in the bathroom while I ushered the bat out the door.
She also had a bat encounter in church one Sunday but enough about bats.
