I love animals, especially wild woodland creatures. However, one thing I do not want to see, ever again, is a big brown body with antlers crossing my path! I’ve already hit two in recent years and both did quite a bit of damage to my cars. Yesterday I had another close encounter of the deer kind! I was almost home when one leapt out of a little group of trees and ran in front of me. Of course I slowed to a crawling pace to see if he had friends. The last deer I hit was the straggler in a herd of about fifteen. While visions of my last two encounters flashed before my eyes I slowly made my way home. I will be extra cautious this morning since the herds may be moving due to the weather changes. However, I will try to remember what Gary always tells me- it is better to hit a deer than to swerve off the road into a tree while trying to avoid one.
Friday! Should be a good day at school. We have been making Native American crafts all week. Today we will decorate a paper vest with picture symbols. Next week turkeys! Food! Pilgrims!
Have a good one.
