Well you certainly live in a great place. I miss it. NC is growing on me though. It was 86 degrees in the sun today and the flowers just keep blooming. None are as pretty as bluebonnets but first there were daffodils and crocuses. Then tulips. Then daylillies. Evidently the sunflowers should be next according to the news today. They decorate the highways bigtime with flowers here.
I was going down 242 one day a few years back and one ran out and this car hit it. One actually ran out in front of me from behind some bushes along our blvd. so I had no chance to stop. Luckily for me they're so fast just it's hoof caught my front bumper. I was so shaken up; I stopped and this guy stopped next to me. I was "Oh, my God, is it okay?" and he was like laughing trying to calm me down saying, "Yes, it's okay"....."No, you didn't kill it."
Very cool. When I lived right down the road from you, I had to watch out for deer on my way to work. I was terrified of hitting one. Plus I always hated that if you hit one, you weren't allowed to at least take it home and eat it. It just seems like such a waste.
Our addition has lots of wooded area and is flush up against Jones State Forest which is protected. In other words, hunters like Matt "can't touch that!" A while ago I looked out and one mommy was laying down just a foot or two from the back door chow'n down with eight babies laying around the yard. Don't know where all the other mamas are. I've just seen one or two adults with the babies the last few weeks, and I've never seen so many babies all together like that before.
