Mutant Deer

Saying for the day: If it looks like a deer, and it walks like a deer , why isn't it a deer?

After much thought and study I have come to the conclusion that our local deer are mutants. They have a different DNA then the average deer.
Why do I think this?

1. The smelly stuff that keeps the average deer away (guaranteed) doesn’t phase them at all.
You can soak the plants in it and they still eat them. ( TC that means Tiger poop wouldn’t work either)

2. The sound thing that is supposed to drive them off with a sound they can’t stand has no effect on them.
They ignore it and eat the plants.

3. Ordinary deer are chased by dogs.
These deer are not only not afraid of dogs they chase them.

4. We planted only flowers that the seed catalogues said the deer hated and wouldn’t eat.
They ate them anyway.

The only possible reason for all of this is that this is a new strain of deer.
It seems to me that this deer season we should get a local hunter to send a sample of local deer blood for DNA analysis.

These may even be deer from some spacecraft that escaped from their handlers.

There has to be some explanation for their behavior.

News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my backyard where the trains still run and so does the White Rabbit– The town has a new problem. The tunnel over at Crippled Creek collapsed or to be more exact sunk. The engine can’t go in without hitting the roof. Dr. Fortress has had to reroute everything through the lower tunnel. This means no business for the restaurant just at the fall season. Dr. Fortress sent up a crew but it doesn’t look like there is any kind of fast solution on the horizon.
The White Rabbit showed up last night in a new blue sweater. The people that saw it said they liked the pink better. Mrs. Trumble said it makes no difference to her she will shoot no matter what color sweater the demon is wearing.
Eino announced today that he is nor running for Mayor. He does not want the job. He will not take the job. One by one the people of Pigeon Falls are standing up and counting themselves out.
Somebody suggested Pastor Marvel for Mayor. One of his members said that if he runs or gets elected that she would quit the church since the Church has no business in politics. Pastor Marvel, himself, has not commented.
The council and the Mayor are now a bigger item of conversation at Nancy’s than the White rabbit and Mrs. Trumble. People are beginning to worry that come November they will have no government. But at the same time none of them are willing to run.
The group in charge of the Pumpkin Fest are asking for ideas as to thematic things to do. There will be pumpkin carving, of course, and the pumpkin street dance. There will be a pumpkin pie throwing contest. But these are all old hat. They want something new this year.

I notice that the blog I picked foir the day has the new blogger beta blog and is giving some trouble in making comments. Margaret has some direction in one of the comments for the day on this blog. Thanks Margaret. Betty and I have decided to go to church tomorrow. Well I need a breathing treatment.

Just this morning the deer were up closer to the house. They spotted the kitty coming out from under the pine tree and started following it around the yard. Kind of funny to watch.

So the White Rabbit is fashion conscious? I would leave a different color sweater out for bait.

Might be interesting to see what happens in a place void of government.

i think deer are cute and i love watching them on the roads up in Banff and such but they seldom come to our yards here and definetely not to mine. i can imagine how frustrating is to have them eat all of Betty's beautiful flower. she works so hard as is..naughty deers but they can't help love your home and her flowers...
***********
Eino won't run? that's horrible...i guess there is still hope, the Pastor hasn't said no yet. i'm sorry about the tunnel. Dr. Fortress is very smart, he will figure it out. It will ge up for the festival...what resturant is blocked off? not Nancy's right?

Deer!! Don't you just love deer season? You rarely see deer anywhere beginning mid November. Maybe if deer season was moved from November to May, June, July, and August we'd be able to have a garden.

white rabbits in pink sweaters, flying dragons and now mutant deer...how's the real estate market up there?
As for the pumpkin fest people wanting to try something new...around here we have pumpkin launchers and a contest every fall to see who's launcher sends a pumpkin the farthest. These are "machines" that the contenders have built and the pumpkins come out of them like rockets. Both individuals and area businesses enter the contest and the event draws more people every year.

I just wanted to stop and say Hi! I noticed you were attacked, too, over at the "God Uncensored" blog. The guy obviously has some issues. Luckily, there's more of us, than there are of them :0)
