There's nothing better than a nice little recap of vacation. Please enjoy this fascinating tale from my dear ol' Dad. It all started because of a little black creature hiding in a baby's room (shout out to Eva - I love you!). I also realized to what lengths (those lengths, they be great) a mother will reach in order to protect her child.
"THE BAT ATTACK WAS CLASSIC. EMILY WAVING THAT BROOM AROUND LIKE BROOMHILDA IN THE DARK AND REVA TRYING TO SCOOT IT OUT THE PATIO DOOR. OH, AND THE COUP DE GRAS WAS EMILY'S SWING WHICH MISSED THE BAT BUT HIT REVA IN THE FACE (REVA SWEARS IT WAS THE BAT BUT GRAMPA WAS THERE AND SAW IT ALL)."
~Ricardo Kucera, in his very own words (and caps for whatever reason that may be).
PS Dan -- this story would've won! If only it had happened before the contest! It's WAY better than the 'moose in the freaking rearview mirror' as you coined it.
