Happy one-day-left-to-order-Thoughtful-Branches and one-day-more-to-wait-till-the-Holiday-Catalog-goes-live Day! Ha – you thought I was gonna say Happy Hawmp day, didn’t ya? Well – happy that, too! 🙂
Before we get to the card, I have a teeny little deer story for you. This evening when I stepped out the back door to go feed, as soon as I walked past the end of the house, I heard this great galumphing and pounding of feet at the other end of the house! It scared the you-know-what out of me! Once I returned to solid ground, looking around quickly to be sure no one saw me be such a ninny-wussy-sissy-la-la….I saw the cause of the commotion. The two tiny, baby deer twins – who are no longer so tiny or baby (they’re pretty much still twins. And….deer) – had been browsing the shrubs right against the house (no – it matters not to me, they’re ugly things that will one day find themselves on the burn pile!) – and I scared the you-know-what out of them when I came around the corner. 🙂
They boinged off a little ways – showing me how big their white tails are – and then turned to look at me. One just stood there – I choose to think she’s a she – and therefore smart enough to have assessed the situation and immediately determined I was no threat. The other, in a show of mighty manliness, stomped his little teenage deer foot a few times. When I didn’t immediately bow to his ferocity, he stomped it a few more times!
Well, that did it. I quickly jumped in the golf cart and backed cautiously away. I know when I’m licked! He definitely showed me what for!! 😉
In truth, it was pretty danged cool to be that close to them – once I could breathe again, that is!
