One of the many things I have in my boot!

Posted by PicasaIn Australia we have a "boot' in our car, think this is the trunk in the US. I keep a lot of stuff in my boot, never know what you will need on the road, DH calls it my mobile office!. This is just one of the reasons my DH has his own pristine car and I have my 'far-less-that-pristine' vehicle.

This was proven just recently when I was putting stuff in the boot and I spotted a little grey thing crawling, presumed it was a mouse who was a good climber, but turned out to be this little darling!
Now, don't you think this little bat is cute! Only mouse sized, i caught him in this coffee cup and took him around for show and tell, note to self...bats can climb and push coffee cup lids off in cars! Lucky I love creepy crawlies! He was very happy to be free an hour later and hung around on the lawn with me for half an hour for old time's sake!
Now, vote, cute or not cute...any ideas for a card caption for the coffee cup one appreciated too, it's got to lend itself to something!! back very soon...beach and injured kid is distracting me!

Adorable! We're not allowed to handle bats here in the UK (with boots on cars too) without a license. I suppose you couldn't not handle one in that situation though!!!
