Sharon and I recently checked out Craters of The Moon National Park in Idaho and aside from being the closest thing I'll ever get to walking on a different planet, they also have bat caves you can explore. I was all about that so we got our permit from the visitor center and set off looking for the trails leading to these caves. We were excited until we actually found one and was informed that it was a two mile walk to get to it. Now that wouldn't have been a big deal had we not already spent three days in Yellowstone walking miles upon miles on terrain that only seemed to go up hill and rarely down. Add the altitude in there and my nickname could have easily been Weezy. So as much as I wanted to see the bats, I also wanted to be able to make it back to the car without the assistance of a rescue chopper.
Flat Bonnie and Gary Ham have saved the day with this Pocket Daruma. Now I can see a bat whenever I want without being the subject matter of some park ranger's hilarious tale. This little dude is as cute as they come and is ready to hang anywhere you can imagine for maximum enjoyment. There will only be twenty of these vinyl plushies ever made and you can preorder one for yourself this Friday, October the 13th and noon pacific time. Each nearly four inch piece will be $31 and will only be available from www.flatbonnie.com. I'm thinking some little viking bunnies would be pretty dang cute, what do you guys think?
