Ah, good to see you back on IF Eric! Super characters as usual! We're having a spot of bother with bats here at the moment! They're hanging around the terrace and making a huge mess!

Eric Barclay said...

Thanks Caroline: I'm guessing the bats you get are a LOT bigger than the ones we have. Ours are about the size of a chicken McNugget with wings.
