That's a heckuva story, Somebunny.
Your friend did the right thing by leaving the room. They will find their way out on their own. They have a harder time with you trying to herd them out.

When I'm not out fighting crime I spend my time in the bat cave reading up on them.

By keeping up with rabies info I end up reading a lot about bats.

Heading down to NY to pick up auto parts and groceries. The ball joints on the van are shot--the only ones we could find in Canada are made in China. Reviews say that once installed, you can't get the front end aligned. So, we are picking up the parts that were made in Ohio--twice the price, but at least the front end will align and a someone in the US made them so has/had a job (well, the parts were shipped last week, so hopefully the person was still working!) I anticipate it will take 2 days to get the new units installed. Nothing on this vehicle is easy--note to self--check how easy it is to do "home" auto repairs before buying the next vehicle. And, never buy a vehicle with an automatic transmission or "special" sized tires again.

You can get a rabies vac shot--I think it is a series of 3, painful, but the titer shows it lasts a long time (10-12 years).

If I ever thought I was exposed to rabies I would go through the post exposure treatment. At $350 a pop (the last I knew) they are too pricey to get one as a preventative. Unless I was a bat wrangler

I'm sitting here sipping a Chai Tea Latte and wondering where to begin to tackle the day.

We are going to a surprise birthday party for my BFF and I just realized I forgot to take the chicken wings out to thaw so I can marinade and cook them before we go. I have her present to wrap, cookie dough that needs to be made up today, some errands to run (taking back the tree topper we bought as the flashing colour lights are driving us a little crazy) and getting my hair cut.

Looking out the window at the grey day and nursing my sore hip and throat, I would much rather curl up in front of our fake tree, watching our fake fireplace (on the TV but it is so real!) with my very real pups and DH watching a movie.
