"Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend.
Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

This is the view from my old home in Upstate NY. I miss that view. Forest , fields, deer and an acre of gardens .. all the neighbors homes were on at least an acre with landscaping and or wonderful trees.
In the winter, deer would come into the back yard and eat out of the bird feeders.
In the summer they would troop in a line across the field, through my property, crossing the road ( which made me so tense) and to the neighbors property where they enjoyed a nice fresh water pond.
Mama deer , fawns, all big deer, there was nothing small and delicate about the adults. And the big daddy had a nice set of antlers.
I never got tired of watching deer mosey across the garden and through the yard ..
and for those who were always warning me about ticks, I never found any ..
Not too long ago, the cats were sitting outside in the lanai, on top of crates and trunks that are out there just for the purpose of cat naps .. and they all perked up .. got very still .. and I did too. What did they see .... then I saw ... a young fawn with its mother.
It brought back all those memories of the NY House ... some of the Good Memories .
