And what to my eyes did appear?!...


Okay, maybe it's a little late for that phrase but it fits. Just before dark this evening I looked out the front window and saw the darndest thing. There were ten deer grazing in the yard (which is really nothing new here) and then one of them kicked up it's heals and here we go. It was a deer rodeo!! I couldn't believe it. I thought when I first saw it that they were spooked and going to run off to their place to bed down, but they didn't run away, they played. One would run at another and kick up it's heels and then the others would join in. I watched for five minutes with my mouth open before I thought to get the camera. I didn't get any pictures of the rodeo but when I went out the front door they looked at me, let me take their picture and then trotted off. The pictures aren't good but you can see they were there. It really made for a nice end of the day in the holler. Blessings as always to you.

How cute! :-) Isn't it great when we get little glimpses into animal life like that? Earth is a wondrous place!
