Saturday was just a relaxing day on the lake. Ben and I were able to sleep late and then rode around in search of coffee and to check how much it didn't rain before picking the boys up at Pop Pops, where they had been up and at em since 6 o'clock eating Pop Pop out of house and home. That afternoon Ben BBq'd ribs and took the boys fishing.
Sunday morning the boys went fishing again. Davis found a bat hooked on by its wing which was funny in itself but his reaction was even funnier "Hmm, I caught a bat". Just very nonchalant, nothing crazy or strange at all about finding a live bat hooked to your fishing pole. Ben was able to loosen the bat from the hook and we watched it fly over to the neighbors porch. Later, while they were fishing after taking a couple fish from their hooks, Ben sticks himself with the hook. Knowing that bats are a carrier of rabies, he decides to catch the bat to have it tested. After successfully catching the bat with a net and taping it up in a cricket bucket it later dies. Monday, Ben takes the bat to the LSU Vet School to be tested for rabies and finally yesterday he received the results that it was negative. So... Thank you Jesus! No foaming at the mouth for Ben!
