I guess that now that I don't eat nuts it's okay, but at one time, I would have loved to have had pecan trees. How cool.
I wonder if we have more deer right now because they are well populated, or because of deer season, which is now.
I've seen them running twice...which is not a usual behavior for these deer, who are never messed with. I looked for animals around, like bobcats, a dog, mountain lion, or bear, but didn't see any. Dh said that maybe there are hunters around somewhere. Maybe.
When we moved here, I'd not let the kids play anywhere outside at this time of year without bright clothing on. There are hunters who do not respect property lines/rights.
I remember that I had a red dress shirt that was not for a smaller child, but I insisted that Ds wear it when he was small and wanted to play outside after school. It was too large, but he was short then, and I didn't want him not being seen well.
The dogs had bright collars, too, for the same reason.
