Don't let the deer get you.

Saying for the Day: One should only hunt in season.

I read on somebody’s blog where they hit a deer. It reminded me of a family in the parish.
She was driving home on the road from Amasa when a deer charged out of the woods and ran into the side of her car.
It staggered and then fell down alongside the road.
She called her son on a cell phone to come and look at her car to see if it was safe to drive.

As she was waiting the deer was walking back and forth gathering strength.

As the son was driving in the deer suddenly bolted and ran smack into the side of the son’s car. Again it fell down alongside the road.

When the son got out of his car the deer staggered to its feet and slowly walked into the woods.
I figure it had filled its license and was only allowed two cars during car hunting season.

News from Pigeon Falls-Pastor Marvel introduced Retired Bishop Thadeus Westemen to the congregation at Last Lutheran Church this morning. He said he looked forward to the Bishop being an active part of the congregation. He was also looking forward to the Bishop’s wife ,Anna , becoming part of the ladies group. She is expected Thursday or Friday. That should put an end to the rumors about the Bishop’s wife. Pastor Marvel went on to preach a sermon about the evil of gossip . A number of the ladies squirmed through that one.
The Methodists held their spring picnic today. They marched from the church to the picnic grounds singing old time Methodist hymns. Those Methodists can sing. The Methodist ladies made little hand held pasties ( best pasties in town) and had a feast of a picnic. In the afternoon they played all kinds of games. For such a small church they sure do make their presence known. The big excitement at the picnic was the appearance of the white rabbit. It was standing at the top of Iverson Hill when they saw him. By the time somebody climbed up it was gone. One lady said he looked real cute in his pink sweater. He waved at them and winked.( No throats got slashed). However, Mrs. Trumble, she’s a Methodist, fainted dead away.
They found a dead pigeon this morning.
Somebody shot it in the head with a bb gun. Mayor South is all upset. She can’t believe that anybody in Pigeon Falls would kill a pigeon. Bob, our part time constable rounded up the usual suspect, Tommy the undertaker’s kid. Tommy denied it and since they can’t pinpoint the time of death we don’t know if he has an alibi or not. He has a bb gun but you can’t do ballistics on a bb. Can you imagine the laughing at the state crime lab if we sent them a bb and a gun and asked if it was fired from that gun. Even more laughter when they find out the victim was a pigeon.

It was a quiet day. Betty went and served coffee after the 10:00 service. Then we went and visted Jon Aho to celebrate his daughter's graduation. We also got to see his HO layout which was very nice but not as good as we expected. Betty went back to getting the flower bed ready and we had to make another trip to Iron River for dirt. Well I need a breathing treatment. GBYA

Sad but funny about the deer.I feel so bad for animals running out of land to live on and getting hit trying to survive.

Im sure glad the deer I hit was already dead on the highway. Im glad I wasnt the first to hit it so I dont feel responsible for his death. My brother and I looked under the car a few days ago....there was blood and hair all over the bottom....I wanted to throw up.

Im glad the wife is coming to Pigeon Falls to end all speculation!

I hope you purchased your soil and didn't win it in a pocker game. That has been known to case problems between the citizens of Crystal Falls and Iron River

Well, I guess that deer decided that enough was enough, which is a good thing, because the third time is usually a charm.
Hope you are enjoying this holiday weekend.
