So yesterday, we went for a walk in the coolth of the evening, to deliver some stuff to Lex, who was at a friend's house a couple of blocks away, and to go by Cafe Paradiso for (I'm sorry, Becks) an iced coffee and a Naked juice. As we walked home along the rain damp streets, we noticed a swarm of bats* flitting across the darkening sky, also out enjoying the break in the heat and in search of a little treat. Not too long after that, as the shadows deepened, the white-frosted globes of the streetlamps began to light, each illuminating a pool of grass and old herringbone brick sidewalk amidst the trees that thickly line the streets. I love my neighborhood.
That reminds me. I should put up a bat house.
*Swarm of bats may be smaller than it appears in mirror. Actual number of bats may vary, but was quite a bit more likely to have been eight than a thousand, perhaps even six, but definitely more than four.
