After the mugging I had Friday night I have had time to review things. First, the clue that all 42 of my resident deer had vanished should have been a clue. I do have to admit I have been walking around like a zombie for so long that I did not even register they had gone.
Second, I know better then to walk around with my head down and my brain in lahlah land... Again, zombie mood.
Lastly, that my animals care and watch over me and I forgot that too. I care and work for them and they do the same for me. I spent the weekend thanking Llama Boy and Kasha for how they put themselves on the line for me and I wanted them to know that I will do the same for them...
This afternoon the deer returned to the farm and several of the does came very close to me as if to say "We Back and Life is Safe Again"... Now, don't get me wrong I am still very watchful when I go outside in the dark. I carry the hatchet at all times and also keep my ear open for sounds. But it is great to see the deer back
