the buck stopped here

Typical Monday. Busy.

Time line:

8:30 - 9:30: Swim lessons for Meego.

10-ish to 10:30-ish: Take dog for her beauty walk.

11:30 - 12:30: Take Chaco to driving lessons and pick up new modem.

1:00-ish to 2:30-ish: Hook up new modem. Do some work work. Do some housewifery. Eat some lunch (egg sammich!)

2:30 - 3:00-ish: Pick Chaco up from driving lessons, think about the next thing on my to-do list... but WAIT. Here's what we came home to:

Yeah, that's Meego out front, a little too close to some visiting deer. Dude, this is NOT the zoo.

I had to slow down and snap a few pics.

They've been hanging out in our neighborhood off and on for a few weeks. That buck is getting ready for the rut.

Yeah, he can hardly wait!


  1. At least they weren't IN your house...that would BLOW!

  2. When does the season start?
    They're cute until they start tearing up your plants/beds.

  3. Talk about tame! The only time the deer around here get that close to humans is when they are getting hit by a car.

  4. omg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wow, that's a little scary, since the males can get aggressive when they are out of their gourds in rut.

    But it's amazing, too!

  5. What a rack! WOW! interestingly enough, we don't grow them that big here in Texas (I know! Go figure!).

  6. Wow - those are definitely deer!

    (also, the post title made me laugh far harder than it should have)
