Do You Have Bats in Your Belfry?
It was hot but the garden need to be weeded and watered. The passerby on the river could see the colorful background of the garden…and the gardener! Bright orange polyester pants, a floral blouse and a BIG straw garden hat. This was nana and this was her garden.
Nana spent the morning working in her garden with her hat on the entire time to shield her face from the sun. As noon approached she headed inside for some lunch with her daughter and grandson. Lunch was good and the iced tea was refreshing, but nothing could top the entertainment.
As nana and her grandson were just about finished with lunch the excitement began. “Nana, do you have bats in your belfry?” He asked. “Why, what are you talking about?” She replied. On the counter next to the lunch table was nana’s garden hat, the one she had on her petite head all morning…crawling out from inside was a BAT!
