I've mentioned before about our household's penchant for taking walks. One of the neat aspects about our usual route is that we'll occasionally see signs of wildlife: wild bunnies, a fox family, we saw an opossum once. And some of the neater critters we see every so often – like the other day – are bats.

They're rare, and the weather needs to be right, with just enough dusk so we can see them but dark enough that they'll come out. But we love our bats.

Now, if I were using this blog for purely mercantile purposes, I might link to some bat-themed bit of Steve Jackson Games gaming goodness, but I'm not that crass. Mostly, I just want the bats to know I love them. And, Bats? If you're read this post, please come out and visit us on our next walk!
