A Follow-Up On those Deer

Yesterday, I mentioned in passing an early-morning encounter with five deer -- who went racing in front of my 50-mph car.

I again rose early this morning (well before 4:00) to head off to work.

There was about an inch of snow on the ground.

And on a nice, well-populated suburban street -- townhouses, no less -- there were trails and trails and trails in the snow: little deer walking around, stopping at my car, walking up onto folks' front yards.  And LOTS o' them.


They're a menace, I tell you.

You know, a cute menace and all.  But a menace.


And I miss that amazing feeling I'd get when I'd see one.  Now, seeing a deer is like hearing a McDonald's commercial. . . .

I do know the feeling. My morning commute started early and there were certain spots where I would start to clench certain body parts cause I knew they'd be there.

One lovely stag (?) stood by the side of the road as I inched by him. I swear he was smiling at me, then he rammed the side of my car. Ugh.

I wasn't smiling, I was grimacing. . . .


Hitting you cars is hard on us too, y'know

Well, you know what an established suburban neighborhood Katie-Bar-The-Door and I live in -- basically the definition of the suburbs. While we were out of town last month, our neighbor counted seventeen deer in our yard. Seventeen. They like the acorns off our oak trees ...

But....but, B. Ambi, he hit me.

I'm the victim here. Me.

Actually, he was fine. My car had a nice dent.

I'm gonna stop talking about animals. : (

thingy -- if you want to avoid talking to the animals, you'll have to cut the Mythical Monkey loose.

And he can be so entertaining (when not peeling his banana).



Yeah, yeah; I said it, lady! Whattya think this is, Billy Graham . . . ?
