Sunny Saturday

Hello people!  Mark is golfing, the sun is out, the herd is back.
There is a total of nine that come but one was out of view and the other has a broken front leg and was holding back.  If she was hit by a car, she may not survive.  It irritates me when people show videos of deer being struck and running away, thinking it's OK.  It's not.  They even run after being shot and it doesn't mean they are not mortally wounded, or have devastating internal injuries. 
 
When Mark's friend came to pick him up for golf, he peeked in to say hello and the look on his face changed drastically when he spotted this.  What did he think they were?  Even the feathers in the pouch gave him pause.  This guy has solid white rooms from floor to ceiling so I know he's clueless about dried gourds. Something tells me he will stay in the car and blow the horn next time.
 
I'll be sitting in the waiting room for several hours this week while my brother has tests so I need to pick another project to take with me.  I'll also be picking up a chair I saw last year at this time that was already sold. I reserved one this year.  Hand made brace back with claw arms and primitive paint.  Can't wait.
 
Enjoy your weekend my friends.

When I was 20, a fawn and doe ran in front of my car at night and I knew I'd nicked the leg of the baby. I was on my way home. My father called the local constable and we took a flashlight to see if we could find the baby. In concern, I asked, "What will we do if we find him?" The constable's response was, "If he's dead, you can have him." Obviously, we were not on the same wavelength!

You sure do get your family time in doctors offices and hospitals, now don't you..Maybe it doesn't pay to be the "healthy" one. LOL

Hope you will show pictures of your new chair when you get it.

White walls ? ? ? Sounds too sterile & boring for me.
The deer are a wonderful and precious sight. Hope the one with the broken leg can be helped.
Will send prayers to you and nephew...Hope all goes well.

Peace to all,
Barb

I know it's part of nature, but it breaks my heart when I see a deer that's injured.

Very sad about the deer! People need to be more responsible! I love dried gourds and have a few I keep up all year. From Sept. to Thanksgiving, my house is full of them.

Oh my heck...you actually made me snort. We went to my husband's friend's house last evening to watch the Superbowl and he, too, is a Mr. Whitewall.... It was the first time I had been there, but now I understand why he was so very quiet when he came to our house the first time...and has not been back since. ;o) Poor dear deer...hope she recovers. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
