|... last night, I started out just before sunset for a quick run down the multi.
'Bout 5 miles into the bike, I came across 5 white tail deer (and they were quick to show me their namesakes) who trotted alongside for about an eighth of a mile before heading through the brush... wonderful, yet a bit ironic.
I'm not a hunter, but this week began our local deer hunting season. These particular animals will probably survive, partly due to 09-11-01. Not only are they in or near a park system... they're near power, water and airport facilities... a real no no zone for hunting this year. It made me pause a bit to reflect... and then be thankful that I had my screamin' yellow PI jacket on...
... let's be careful out there...
