  Howdy from the belfry! Yep! It’s Benny again! You United Methodists amaze me! You also tire me out just watching all the work you do! In late June a whole bunch of you baked almost 500 pasties when it wasn’t even pasty time! You also froze them, so that in July you could unfreeze […]

Greetings from Benny, your very own FUMC bat! Spring is pretty well gone and summer is here! Somehow that reminds me that life goes on, too, and sometimes things go by so fast that they’re gone before I wake up to that fact. In June the high school seniors graduated , and we had a […]

Howdy from the belfry! I am happy to report that spring has really arrived! While you humans still need jackets on some days, the snow is actually GONE, lawns are in need of mowing, and bugs are starting to return, which means we bats will soon be feasting on mosquitos again! You know, I was […]

Howdy from the belfry! Boy, has it been cold up here recently!! Once in awhile we get a little relief from the bitter cold, but it never lasts long! However, I can tell that there is hope! This church is beginning to have unusual meals at strange times for a church! For example, one Tuesday […]

Hurray! It’s my favorite time of year, when bats abound! Happy Halloween, all you wannabe bats! Well, O.K., maybe most of you humans don’t really want to be bats all that much, even if we can fly and you can’t, at least not without using mechanical devices such as airplanes to help you. Anyway, this […]

Well, it’s a sure sign that summer is over when our summer residents start heading for their homes elsewhere. Pat and Laloni McConnell have gone back to Maryland, Mary Livingston an Bob Morrow  have left for Indiana (even though the winters there aren’t exactly a lot warmer than the ones in Michigan), and some of […]

Greetings from Benny, your very own belfry denizen! (I learned a new word! For the one or two of you who may not already know, a denizen is a resident, or more specifically, a resident of a place which wasn’t its natural habitat. For a bat, I guess the natural habitat would usually be trees […]
