Deer in the Headlights


One of the benefits of living near the woods is the variety and frequency of animal life that likes to traipse on by. This afternoon when I got home I happened to spot a couple deer munching on my front lawn, a young buck and a doe. The funny thing was watching one of my cats standing paws against the window hoping I'd let him out to go chase the them I assume. And, it's funny because my cat is in no way a threat to a deer. He's tiny by comparison and not that bright. I just looked at him and said, "do you really think I'm going to let you go out there?"

I would have had pictures but all the damned cameras in the house had dead batteries, and I wasn't too interested in unhooking my webcam from my PC, hooking it up to my laptop, and finding a good spot to take video/pictures. Sorry folks! Maybe next time.

So it looks like I've gotten into a bit of a regular schedule of posting. I was thinking, if there's sufficient interest, I might start posting pieces of the novel I've been writing. It's interesting because I started at the end, then I wrote the beginning, and now I'm trying to fill in the middle. Since I figured out the ending first, the rest is basically one long flashback (a technique I've always found interesting), so I can't really describe the plot without throwing off the suspense created by not knowing anything about what's going on in the beginning. Let's just say, it's epic fate of humanity kind of stuff because I am absolutely entranced by stories of that kind.

Maybe you all out there in blogland can help me come up with a title and character names, since at present, I have neither.

Anyway, I'm going to go make my rounds on other people's blogs. So I bid thee adieu for this entry.

All you have to do is hang a bar of soap nearby, and they'll leave the flowers be. I think they just want an excuse to hunt the deer.

I think we should do the march just for the novelty of watching that many deer heading through the capital. Hehehe
