Oh Deer!

So many deer were walking the trails in Chagrin River Park today, it reminded me of a school playground at recess time…recess for a large class of does, bucks, and fawns, although the fawns are getting pretty big by now, and the only buck in the class is a young fella just growing his antlers. Take a look at them. I don’t have captions on the pictures tonight, so I will have to do that tomorrow. Meanwhile, enjoy the class picture:

And finally: Here’s a persistent deer that was walking in my direction and didn’t know when to stop. She definitely invaded my space, but she wasn’t aggressive. Definitely assertive, but not aggressive. I am sure she thought I had food for her, but I didn’t. She was disappointed when I waved her off and walked away.

I wonder if she is part of the herd that comes out of the park at night to visit my back yard bird feeders? Now that there is snow on the ground, they come every night and polish off whatever food the birds didn’t eat during the day.

It’s really neat to live practically next door to this beautiful park, but I do wish the deer would respect the park boundaries. However, I’m not going to hold my breath while I wait for that to happen.

See you soon.

  1. I think you should photograph the deer on Robin Drive at 3 a.m. or so. Or even in our backyards at night. I will hold the lights for you. Marge Herman Stevens was here Friday afternoon. Jennifer is now in the care of the Cleveland Clinic. She has had tests which confirm the MS diagnosis. She now has to decide which medication to take; one is oral and the other a shot. At this point prognosis is good. I thought she lived in Eastlake, but it is Euclid–not too far from Kathleen.

    What do you think about going out for breakfast after my eye appointment Tuesday morning? I am hoping that since it is at 9:15 a.m., I might not be too terribly long in his office. She writes hopefully.

    If you are unable to take me, let me know and I will draft Kathleen.

    Services for Andy are tomorrow. One of Ed’s friends–who is in Florida for six weeks–wrote a remembrance which he has asked me to present. It is heartfelt and quite touching. Hope I will be able to maintain composure.
