Wildlife Preserve

On my way out to a party on the far west side, I stopped by Miss Mary Kay’s parents house, as she is in Cleveland for a wedding and to visit her clients here in Cleveland.  Miss MK’s family lives in a semi-spacious area of Cleveland – it’s not like my house in Geauga County, but it’s close.

At any rate, as I pull into her driveway, there are four deer chillin in the yard, eating.  I sat in the car for about five minutes just watching them, and taking a few pictures on my camera phone.  Even out in Geauga, I don’t get to be that close to the deer.  One of the deer was still pretty brazen and stood their watching me as I went to the front door.

Miss MK answers the door with her nephew, and I point out the deer in her front yard, and she’s like, “Oh my God, get inside, quick.”

Later, she confesses to me that maybe she’s turned into a bit of a city girl.  My response?  Well, maybe a little.  I mentioned on my way out the door, that I need to be a little fair.  It’s hard to be afraid of a dopey-eyed deer when I’ve had a racoon try to climb in the car and make friends when I was smoking.  Rabies at midnight strikes more fear into my heart.

  1. You probably could have gone up to that deer and pet it. At Blackwater Falls, W.Va, Grandma used to feed them leftover pancakes by hand.
