Breakfast With The Bats

Stan Freberg here. A small item in the New York Times caught my eye. 500 people were on hand to greet the pre-dawn fly-in of thousands of bats at a cave in Carlsbad, New Mexico! There's more. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Okay, not only were 500 bat lovers on hand to greet the fly-in of the bats, but for $5 a pop, all these people were served a pre-dawn breakfast at the entrance to the Carlsbad Caverns cave.

That means they sat there eating in the dark as the bats flew in!--"Eeuw! There's a bat in my orange juice!" " 'scuse me, I think a bat flew off with my little pig sausage."

The news story said greeting the dramatic fly-in of the bats from their appointed rounds was a 5000-year-old tradition. Says WHO? You know anybody who was here 5000 years ago? No.

If I do have a pre-dawn breakfast, it won't be outdoors at a batcave during a bat homecoming, thank you very much!
