The Adventures of Sadie
Hi! It’s me, Sadie Wanda Graham, and do you like my stories of me? I think they’re really cool! But anyway, if you never read my other Sadie stories, then that’s okay. You don’t need to. But, my favorite sister ever, Ash, calls me Sahd Tahd Tahd Tahds, Yes. She Is. That’s my name! Well, anyway, on May 14th, Ash took me outside and I saw a annoying neighbor and she was crawling around on her lawn!?!?! I know, right?! That’s so weird that someone would do something like that! But anyway, just wanted to let you know. That’s a thing that I saw. I also smelled chicken because I was right by the deck, which is where the grill is at. I smelled chicken, because Dom Doms and Mommyboos (what I call Dom and Mom) were making chicken. On the grill. And it smelled heavenly. Well, anyway. These are NOT fake stories and I hope that you guys can give me some ideas for the new Batwoman series! Thanks for reading, and bye!
Batty for Bats!
By Ashlyn Graham
Have you ever wondered about bats? Bats are nice animals that can help us, and the environment. I think that we should build bat houses in the park and the surrounding areas because of this.
Bats are Nice!
Bats are nice animals that help us, and our environment. You might be wondering, why? Or, how? Bats can eat harmful bugs that eat farmers’ crops. That makes our food healthier, because the farmer does not need to waste millions of his well-earned money, just to get these really expensive pesticides so that the bugs don’t harm the food. Bats help by eating them. Bats are also nice because they pollinate plants, just like bees! Bats are very special, even though they are not the biggest population.
Why are bats limited?
Bats have a small population. People can harm them by going and cutting trees, where a bat might be sitting. Another problem can be people going into caves, where bats are. That’s probably how the white-nose sickness came from. They had a type of sickness on them, and they went into the cave, and they spread it on one bat. That poor bat was contagious, and sadly, the white-nose syndrome spread all around the bat population. What the white-nose syndrome does to bats, is, it weakens their skin and their wings. It wakes them up from their winter hibernation. Of course, the bat is hungry. The bat can’t fly because of the weakness on its skin. There is no food in the wintertime. The wintertime weather is cold, and the bat can’t find any food, neither can it be warm. Do you think that there would be mosquitoes, the bat’s food, when it’s snowing? Of course, you shouldn’t! The bat freezes on the outside, and it gets the fungus of the white-nose syndrome goes on it, and the bat starves to death, and it freezes to death. That’s why we should get bat houses. It can protect the bats from freezing.
How can we help?
Bat houses help. It gives bats a different place to live. If the bat lived in a tree, and someone cut that tree down because of deforestation, we can give them a better chance of not dying out.
More about Bats
- Bats are the world’s only flying mammal.
- Bats pollinate crops.
- Bats eat bugs that harm crops.
- Bats don’t have rabies. Actually, there are very few bats that do.
- Bats don’t live in hair.
- Bats don’t suck blood. Only vampire bats do.
- Bats don’t harm people. Vampire bats only harm the things that they drink blood from, which does not include people.
- There’s no reason to be afraid of bats. A Clear Summary of Bats
Bats. the world’s only flying mammal species, are endangered because of white-nose syndrome. We can build bat houses to help save them, because they do very good things for people. I don’t think that we should be afraid of bats, because they don’t harm people. A way that we can help bats, is, we can make bats some bat houses.
Bats use something called echolocation. This is when bats are flying around in the night, and they want to catch food. They make a high-pitched noise that’s above our hearing range. That noise bounces off of a moth or mosquito. It can tell the bat what speed the thing is going, if it’s even moving at all, and what it looks like. The bat’s echo can bounce back to the bat. Echolocation is called echolocation because the bat echoes, to find the location of food. Bats really aren’t blind. Bats can actually see pretty good! Bats just can’t really see good in the nighttime, when they are awake, because usually bats aren’t awake in the daytime-because bats are nocturnal.
Why should I build bat houses?
I think you should help save bats by building bat houses because bats can help pollinate crops. Bats can also get sick with WNS, aka White-Nose Syndrome. If bats can get a home, they can probably not get sick. It’s also, for me, okay if a bat wants to live in my house.
Lots of people just aren’t really convinced yet, of why we should help bats. But here’s what they think:
Myth: Bats always get tangled in human hair.
Fact: Bats do not become entangled in human hair deliberately, though they may dive for flying insects near a person’s head.
Myth: All bats bite and carry rabies and diseases.
Fact: Not all bats bite and carry diseases. Bats seldom transmit disease to other animals or humans, but bats are wild animals and should not be disturbed, in case they are carrying certain diseases.
Myth: All bats drink blood.
Fact: The bats of Newfoundland and Labrador do not feed on the blood of people or animals. The little brown bat is a harmless insect eater. With the exception of the tropical Vampire bat (not found in Canada), most bats feed on insects or fruit. Soon an anticoagulant (a substance that hinders the clotting of blood) found in the saliva of the vampire bat may be used to treat heart patients.

Please help bats! These reasons are why you should help to build bat houses and save our bats!
Sadie’s Adventures by Saydoth Wanda Graham
February 19th, Monday
9:56 in the morning
Chapter 1: The Goings On
Ash already left with Mom to go to work and school. That only leaves ME with the unusual DAD! No! Now my day would be horrible when a puppy just wants to stay home and watch the construction over at Wildflower Ridge. But instead, I have to try and fake that I’m sleeping and bite Dad and bark at his coat. It’s practically the exact precise same way whenever Dominic is home after school at around 3:00. He just screams at me, goes to the bathroom, ain’t wanna take ME out, and of course, play Fortnite or The Crew Calling All Units with his friends, Gavin and Brandon. The sad part is that I am happy to see him, but obviously he’s never excited to see me. Which is so unfair.
Chapter 2: Sleep!
I am free writing this as a dog to practically say that this is America, and I should not be disturbed by my father or brother when I am making these writing thingys and also when I am trying to sleep. I always bark if someone is annoying me, but it’s not really like that’s gonna help. It’s just that these odd humans think it’s cute when I try to annoy them! What the heck, people? And yet, I am writing to you people.
Chapter 3: Konga
I wish I could do my Kong, also known as The Konga, to the humans here in Fairville Heights, and most people think it is hilarious if I growl at them. “Hey people!” I usually bark. “I’m ONLY growling at you peoples because I am eating Peanut Butter! Duh! What do ya think, peoples?!” I yap all the time.
Chapter 4: GTG
Sorry, but I am getting disrupted right now by Dad and he is annoying me so sorry but I got to go.
Also, one more thing: Another Meepland series is coming up! It’s about Mip.
Cat Notes by Ashlyn Graham
3:00 AM Hey! It’s me, Roki the kitten! Right now, I am playing with my toy mouse, Squeaky.
3:02 AM Basically, now I need to eat my food.
But now I am seeing a creepy guy who looks like a creepy clown holding a red balloon and a knife. Cat lifes are odd. These cat books are probably gonna be short, but it’s not like they’re scary. Imagine yourself by PENNYWISE THE CLOWN! Right next to him were a rake man and a scary rake dog! I fled up to my owner’s room. I slept on their bed until the scratching and the popping of the balloon and the scary bark of the dog would stop. I slept for the rest of the day like that.
Hi friends! I am so happy that it is the school year because now I can blog! (Because my computer at home broke and nobody ever bothered to fix it. But, hey, I need you peoples to give me some ideas for what I should write about! Btw you should do Mr. Geiman’s blog challenge. See ya!
Meepking was laying in bed. Then he heard a knock on the door at the bottom room. Which is the lobby. So then, see, he goes down there. Mip, one of his fellow meep friends, was there. “Meepking,” Mip said, “Meepland is flooded.” Mip shuddered. “Well how did you get here, Mip, if the rest of your family is at home?” Meepking asked. “Uh, well, I, uh, um, you see….” Mip said. Mip was very very very suspicious. And furthermore, he was wet. “Well, Mip,” Meepking said, looking around the room, “did you see anything?” “Yes, uh, I guess.” Mip then explained that he was walking by the Laffy Taffy shop in Wonka World (which is a thing that I do not even know if it had been made or something) and next after that he said that he saw someone in the hole in the side of the Candy Cave. Next Meepking went to the building, yes, that building that I am going to describe later. He stepped up to the doorstep of the new townhouse and rang the gargoyle’s ring in its nose. “Wait are you sure that this is the right place?” Meepking asked Mip. Yeah you would think since it is Meepking’s sister’s pet that he’d know where it is.”Huh, yeah all right. I have been coming here for days ever since that thing happened.” Mip explained. Meepking asked his trusty sister to come and help. Yes his sister was a unicorn, but she could help. She has a horn that can do anything (except come off because then she’d be a donkey.) Then Uni helped look. When they got to Wonka World, they saw the cave. “C’mon, guys, ride on my back.” Then they found the culprit. It was Willy Wonka I will tell you the rest of the story in the next story.
