Well, not a reindeer, but a real deer! I was working on the mo-ho in the driveway. We live on a very busy street. We have a large business that sells windows, doors, siding, etc, next door to us, and a golf course across the street. I had just finished washing the front of the mo-ho, and went over in front of the truck to dump the soapy water in the gravel. Just as I was leaning over and dumping the water, I hear something russeling in the leaves. I look up and right there between the truck and fence is a deer going full tilt towards me! I barely had time to stand up and lean back as it shot past me down the side of the garage and into the back yard! Craig is on the other side of the mo-ho, hears me scream, SH#T! Comes over to see what was going on I point and yell, A Deer! And as he looks, it shoots through the evergreens across the back of the yard and is gone. Now where the hell did it come from at 2 in the afternoon? It was a beautiful 66 out and the golf course was busy with people, The business next door has 8 ft fences, and we live on a very busy road.
But anyway, if I hadn't moved, I'd been trampled! That's the closest I ever want to get to deer going full tilt!
And in other news, Like I said, it was a beautiful day! The warmest it's been since last October! And we took full advantage of it because today it's gone. Colder weather with rain and possibly snow later this week. But that's March, a little bit of everything.
I also trimmed back some shrubs, and Craig put our new State Park stickers on the car and mo-ho. Then it was barbecued chicken and marinated zucchini on the grill.
It was a perfect day! (well, except for the damn deer!)
