Jotting Judi - He sees the sparrow fall; How about a fawn?


Posted by: tdt -

Our move from the flat prairie land of Texas to the rolling hills and curvy roads of Western Pennsylvania has challenged us in many ways.  Getting from point A to point B may seem like an easy run but it is a good idea to follow the GPS designed for the area.
We have learned the deer population is at an all time high and caution must be exercised when traveling around town.  They do not only cross the roads and residential streets near the “deer crossing” signs! (I must admit, this does remind me of watching for cattle on the road in Texas but here they do not choose country roads.)
We headed out to run errands last week when we saw something crumpled on the street ahead.  As we approached, we realized it was a small fawn.  Traffic prevented us from stopping but we were able to veer around the sight so as not to create further damage to the small, fallen creature.  Later, when we headed towards home, we noted the fawn had been removed.  This helped me breathe a sign of relief.
