Monday

I finally had a day off yesterday, and a gorgeous one it was, too. I was doing afternoon chores in a t-shirt! And it is 54 and sunny out there right now-54 in the shade! I had the house 78 last night and was dying...lol

Saw 2012 last night that movie was awesome! Wow! TG the Firebird had to pause it to lock up the geese because I was all tense on the edge of my seat! I am glad I didn't see it in the theater; that would have been too much!

Sat with a dying deer on the side of the road yesterday afternoon. I thought it was dead and stopped to see and it was taking its last gasps. I didn't see a mark on it and tried to roll it onto its chest and then it fell over the other way and I saw a place on its head that looked like a bullet hole!

After it died I dragged it up into the woods into a little hollow and covered it with leaves. I did hate to waste the meat but I didn't have a knife on me to bleed it and I would have had to call a game warden to get their permission to take it.

I felt so sad for it. :( It was about the size of one of my goats.

I did check the wound and didn't see a bullet but the skull was splintered a little there so I think someone did shoot it but it ran off and died later with me at its side. If it had been hit by a car, it would have had a different wound, I think.

Deer are pretty tough that way-I hit one in the Blazer once, straight on doing about 50mph and ran over it with both passenger tires. Broke my headlight and grill. I stopped and the deer was gone! I had deer hair in my grill and both tires?!?! I don't think it went very far but it was nighttime and woods on both sides of the road.

I saw a car pulled over one night and they had just hit a deer near a friend's house and they couldn't find it and they couldn't believe it ran off. Then for two summers my friend saw a very lame doe in his front yard-with twins...he hasn't seen her in the last few years so some hunter or coyote must have finally got her.

Well, enough deer talk! Thought I would try something different today! Deer not goats! LOL
