So cool!

I was taking the garbage out on my way to school and noticed some movement out of the corner of my eye. I dropped the garbage can lid, because its freaking freezing out! And saw something jump in our neighbors yard. I turned all the way around and saw a deer!! I ran up the steps and fumbled with the door trying not to scare the deer. I yelled "hunny, get the camera quick!" While waiting for him I noticed that there were 3 deer!!

The camera had dead batteries, dangit! So Stu ran to get new ones while I watched whispering to the kids "shh, don't scare them." One started walking toward the street and our street is really busy with no sidewalk on our side, so I said "don't go into the street." Cause deer understand english and would listen to me, duh. To my surprise it started walking into our yard! Woohoo, we might get a pic after all.

Stu got this picture...



before they ran down the hill and out of site.

I hope they found food or whatever it was they were looking for. They were so cute :)
and for Stu's version, click here.

Cool!
If you happen to be driving around our city after midnight, it's common to come across deer in the middle of the roads. Along w/possums. We've also had coyotes come to the bottom of our stairs. You'd think I lived in a freakin forest.

we get lots of deer, and um - peacocks (yes you read that correctly, there's a peacock farm down the road) - in our area, too!
