The Deer Arrived, Finally!

I've been wanting to see the deer come down out of the woods and this morning is the first time I've noticed them.  Usually they are here 2 at a time, but we saw six of them in the yard this morning.

Before that, I got up this morning to hear the boys talking softly and working the last of the jigsaw puzzle.  I let Justin use my camera to take a photo of the puzzle, and while he was at it he took pictures of everything in sight.  I got him to take some of the deer.


 You can click on a photo to enlarge it.  They turned out a little blurry, but he did a good job for a 6 yr old!

I normally never let any kids touch my computer, phone, camera, etc.  I know they are familiar with all kinds of tech devices that I don't even know how to use, but as I told him, I'm retired and if something breaks I might not have the money to get it fixed.  And besides, I would rather get mad at myself for breaking something than I would a kid.  I don't know why I let him use the camera, but I did.  His mom had to fool around with it to get the picture on the screen - I use the viewfinder!

I still haven't gone anywhere except to the A&P for a couple of items.  Maybe I'll head up towards Hyde Park and the Roosevelts tomorrow or the next day.  I have plenty of time and I'm still working off the effects of the travel.  I love having the treadmill downstairs.


  1. That's some puzzle and the kids finished it!. Love the deer he didn't do to bad but I agree letting them play with my stuff is a no no, mostly because they know more than me and might change something and then I can't figure out how to fix it back, its happened lol

  2. Always love to see wildlife, especially deer.

  3. I agree - I never let my grand kids touch my electronics. But they have their own, and their parents have no problem lending theirs to the kids. I'd hate it if they broke something - what would I do then? No good options.

  4. That is a mighty big crossword puzzle.

    I like to see wildlife but with the population growth in the area we no longer see any deer.
