We'll miss you Spunky!

Spunky passed away shortly after this picture was taken. He took one last swim in the family hot tub! Spunky held a special spot in the Gill's hearts and he left a special stain on our couch for us to remember the babysitting days when Mama and Papa were travelling.
We'll miss you Spunky! :-(

Josh let the bat go!
Josh trapped the bat!
Josh walking in to tell me about the bat!
We have no idea how the little bugger got in,but it certainly gave us a scare AND.... quite a laugh. I was not much of a help as I could not stop cracking up from the flying bat in our house and taking pictures of course.... ;-)

Happy Birthday Josh! #32!!
