Dodgin' Deer

I went for another drive tonight. I needed somewhere to go to think. It's kind of like that whole don't shit where you eat. I don't know why it makes sense to me, but it does.

The weather was too perfect to pass it up. However, this time, I found myself nestled in some woods, somewhere. I turned off the radio, rolled down all the windows and just listened.

One thing I forgot about the woods at night though? Deer.

I am obviously alive to tell the tale, as are the deer.

I can tell you that'll get your mind off things for awhile!

hahahahahahhahhaha. I miss my "neighbors".

One time I woke up (I was alone, as hubby was still in the army) and there was a face staring in my window. I started to scream until I realized that the nose was an awful long way from the eyes, and that people don't usually come in that particular shade of brown.... It was the doe who lived in our backyard, evidently come up to get some of the warmth off of the house.

My m-i-l and I do the day after Thanksgiving shopping bonanza at the local retail outlet...which involves my getting up at 4:30 AM. One year I drove to her house, pulled into the drive, and saw three decorative deer on the lawn. 'Holy crap' I thought...I'm still half asleep and pulled up in someone else's yard! That can get you shot in my part of the south. I started to back out, when the frozen, startled deer finally took off!

Hmm. We have no deer. Drive on our roads and you have to stop for turtles and Sandhill cranes.
