That reminds me of the made-for-TV (I think) movie, Christmas Snow, starring a very young Melissa Joan Hart, Katherine Helmond, and Sid Caesar. It was a very cute movie described as follows: "When her mean-spirited, old landlord goes missing during a blizzard on Christmas Eve, Mrs. Mutterance and her children set out to search for him. Upon his rescue, he has a new view on life." I love all the malapropisms from Mrs. Mutterance (and she does mutter a lot!). You can buy it for $4.77, and it ships for free (Prime). I had NEVER heard it thunder during a snowstorm when I was a kid, so this movie seemed so odd to me because of the snow thunder and lightning!

News from our house. I went to the door to open it and get a package. I happened to glance down at the floor, and in the corner there was a dead bat. We have no idea how it got there, but we have a STRONG feeling that the cat brought it in as a gift to us. She has been known to do that in years past, each time the animal control officer telling us that the cat probably did not actually "catch" the bats but probably found it. Right about the fifth time, animal control accepted the fact that our cat probably DID catch the bats. She had a habit of somehow getting onto our roof, and we think she swatted them and "caught" them after she stunned them. Anyway, the officer today did not even look at the bat (Hubby had put it into the trash can out back) and said the trash was the best place for it. Since we have had cases of West Nile virus in our area each year for several years, I am always cautious, especially because of the deaths of several people with West Nile virus and the death of a young man (a 20-something "kid") from the bite of a rabid bat; and I take the threat of bats very seriously. Also, after having gone through chemo and radiation within the past several months, I am cautious of ANY illness or threat of germs and/or viruses due to my lowered immune system. I was inside the house working on my stuff and the officer left without the bat. He had told Hubby that the county was "out of money" and could not afford the testing ($50) that would need to be done to find out about the bat. I explained to Hubby about my concerns and told him I would pay the $50 to give myself peace of mind. I called the officer and told him I wanted the bat tested, period. He came back to get the bat and tried to tell me that the virus of a rabid bat (normally) dies almost immediately upon contact with air. I checked online and found out that the virus can still be alive inside the bat and in his/her saliva. I did not want to take any chances whatsoever! I wonder what the officer would have done if he had small children and had found a bat in his house. Would he want it tested? I think he would, actually! One of the things that got me, I think, was his attitude, what I call the "Now, now, little lady" attitude. I was ticked off, especially since he put on gloves to pick up the bat after having told us there was nothing to be afraid of, that any virus would have already been dead!!! Anyway, I have to calm down. Do you think I am overreacting?
No, not at all!! I think you did the smart & safe thing. Good thinking on your part! I hate when someone is condescending like that...grr!!
