Friendly Bats & Purring Owls

Dear John,
 
There's not a lot to say about today. I worked almost 9 1/2 hours again, and got a lot accomplished this week. In the last two days I've gotten out mailings of 250 and 50, along with the other usual work. Now I'm ready for the weekend!
 
I changed my Facebook profile photo tonight, to this little guy. Isn't he adorable? He reminds me of all the hours we spent in the Nocturnal Animal House at the Cincinnati Zoo. Thank goodness you love bats as much as I do! They're beautiful and amazing creatures. And this little face is just so sweet, isn't it? I have never understood what people have against them. Are they afraid that bats will turn into Bela Lugosi? There's only one bat that bites, and it doesn't live this far north. They're nothing to be afraid of. And they're terrific at getting rid of your mosquito problem. They're beautiful to watch in flight, or just hanging around. (Sorry - I couldn't resist. I really should try harder!)
 
 
I found this other photo tonight and just had to show it to you. When I look at it I expect him to be purring, because he looks so happy. This is how I'd look if you were touching me! I don't know if you ever saw me look like this fellow, but I know this is how you made me feel. The expression on your face when you looked at me was enough to make me feel like this - I always loved that look. I can't see it right now, but it still make me happy to think about it.
 
So tonight as I think about you and talk to you, this is how I feel - like a purring owl. It makes me smile, and I hope it does you, too. Come pat me on the head tonight, and see how happy I get!
 
Love you so, so much,
Joan.
