The day Sue met Chiroptera she was sitting in the park eating her sandwiches. 72 and in early retirement, she felt there was not much purpose to her life anymore. Then a gust of wind blew and a bat flew off the tree landing on the ground beside her. She rushed to him and was glad that he was safe apart from a broken arm. She nursed Chiroptera back to health and visited him each day when she had released him back into his habitat. Sue made a friend and regained a purpose in her life. Her little star.

    How lovely, Lisa. I’m sure Sue’s star is very grateful.

  2. Lisa that is a lovely story. It doesn’t matter what age you are you still need to feel that there is a purpose to life and your little bat stopped Sue from going batty.

    Such a sweet story and a clever pairing of names, Lisa.
