Nope. Just likes bats. This was at a bat rescue training seminar. She was looking into whether she wanted to do bat rescue. We thought about it, but she decided against.

It would be nice if the cookie didn't start crumbling so soon.

Agree. Sometimes you can postpone the crumbling, but even the best cared for cookies crumble in the end.

Enjoy every sandwich as the sage Warren Zevon said.

Zevon had a song that covers all this, but the title would trigger the filter twice.

It's been heading downhill for at least the last 15 years in my case.

Cars out of the equation, I can agree with this.

What's more dangerous - the risk of your heart and lungs assploding half-way up the hill or the risk of losing control half-way down the hill?

At least the ones around here.

Side note - our hills are more like speed bumps for some of you guys.
