oh deer, that's a lot of critters

I think we're running a whitetail all you can eat buffet out behind the house.  It started out with about 3 deer munching away in the field.  They must have told their friends, who told their friends, who told theirs, etc etc.  Every night we've got more deer out there and last night I counted 23.  What are the odds that they're going to stick around and be such easy targets in November during hunting season?  I sure could use some venison in the pantry.

The birds are all coming back as well.  I saw the first robins last week and the Canadian geese are honking their little hearts out.  I was at the window yesterday and heard a weird noise, it took me awhile to figure out that it was birds singing outside.  It's been a lloooonnggg  winter.  If we're lucky, maybe one of these days the snow will finally all be gone as well. We can only hope.  I think I'm going to start some tomato plants this week.  I've never been able to start plants inside, but I keep on trying.  Maybe one of these years I'll get it right.

WE's girlfriend and her family are back from vacation.  It's nice having only one dog in the house again. This place just isn't big enough for 2 big full-grown mutts.

I see a lot of deer feasting in the fields while I'm working and the poor things look so scrawny, i think it's been a really long winter for them too? I know it sure has felt like an eternity for me too! Singing birds and the sight of geese is making me smile....spring is close! Can't wait to see flowers popping up and getting my patio furniture out of the basement.
