the plan



This fall Mary had bats. Real bats flying around her house, hiding behind blinds, and waking her up at night. It was out of control. When the boys came home the plan was to go on the roof and secure the chimney. Diagrams were drawn and supplies were purchased. The safety ropes were set and the ladder brought out.

The morning was pure comedy filled with Mary hanging out the attic window shouting ideas, neighbors gathering on the street, and the engineer and mountain climber brothers figuring out how to successfully secure the chimney.

Just a typical day on Baker Avenue in Mankato, Minnesota.
