Some of you probably won’t like me after I make this confession, but after having “Doe, a deer” running through my head for the last couple of days, I have to get it off my chest.
I don’t like “The Sound of Music.” I know it’s a beloved musical favorite of many, and I can sing along to the songs with the best of you — but I cringe whenever ads for the “special holiday showing” start airing on TV.
Something I like even less? Seeing these guys while I’m driving.
The other night, I spotted no less than eight of these suckers — in two different spots on the road. They were standing the middle of the road, so I had to come to a stop to let them pass.
John Tesh wasn’t kidding when he said this is the most likely time of year to see deer.I heard it the other day on his radio show. Apparently, late October/November is their mating season — meaning they get stupid and run in front of vehicles more often. I believe it. I’ve seen deer several nights, but last night was the first time they impeded my progress instead of grazing placidly on the side of the road.
One last thought: Is it just me, or does everyone see deer in every bush on the side of the road after spotting one of the suckers?
