Dear Deer

...What can the matter be? Oh daughter of mine, do you really think I wouldn't notice the front end damage to my car from grazing a deer the other night? Please don't hold back vital info such as that from me or I shall have to post a story about it on my blog!

Oh the poor deer Mrs.Mac!!
Is it Ok?
When my brother moved to Iowa, his daughter, Ginny said that that was one thing she could never get used to...seeing deer along the highways that had been hit by cars.

Hope your car is ok!!..Love Terry

Mrs. Mac said...

Apparrantly the deer got up and rejoined its two other buddies ... damage to car was slight ... She wasn't going too fast ... but it scared her enough to shake in her boots.

Pat said...

Did she look like a deer caught in the headlights when asked about it?! That can be very dangerous, it's always on my mind when I'm up north at the cottage.
Glad everyone is ok, including the deer!
Your starting to scare me, your posting scriptures that go with everything like Sara does!

Maggie Ann said...

wow, could have been alot worse,huh. Bad enough though. Deer out and about scare me...we've had several close calls. One did run into the car once but amazingly did no damage...sort of slid along the front end.

We just had this happen too. sigh.......

I'm glad nobody got hurt.

In 2005, Dave's brother hit a deer in Wyoming, on their way to hook up with us on our family vacation, and totalled their mini van! That same trip, while we are in Alberta Canada (Waterton NP) we had an enormous bull moose rise up from out of nowhere and run right in front of our van! Our conversion van sits high up but I swear we were looking up at this thing!

I went back and I think I resized my photos. I took the ones that I posted directly from the Canon software folders for posting, not realizing that they were also in my normal folder as well! Hopefully that will work better (if I indeed did them right!)

Hi Mrs.Mac. ...Just read your nice comment about my rubberstamping collages...=). How nice you enjoy collage and cardmaking too! Just thought I'd let you know that buying unmounted rubber stamps is the way to go, for me anyhow. 'Above the Mark' has a wonderful sale page. I take mine and make a masking tape loop to stick them onto my acrylic block just long enough to use. That way placement is perfect because you can see exactly where to place it. I love the detail a stamp adds. Listen to me running on here...can you tell its one of the loves of my life...grin. Hope you have a peach of a day!

uh oh! didn't think to mention that did she?? doens't she know by now that mother's find out EVERYTHING!! :0 Glad no one was hurt...those deer crashes can be serious.

Dear Mrs. Mac.
Thanks for your visit.
Did you notice how quiet it is at you place now?
A couple of days ago, I flew in and swiped Miss Holly.
Then I scooped Pilgrim's cat, Willow, on my way back home.
NOW I am putting up with the barking!
If it weren't for our owning our house, we would surely be kicked out of the neighbourhood!
I was going to blog the two of them yesterday but then I got that nice envelope from Hebrews11:1 and his sister, little Montreal girl and I just had to share it!

Hopefully if I can put up with all this racket for another night, I will blog that kitty and that bad dawg and send them RIGHT home!....Love Terry

Are you high-speedin' yet?

Mrs. Darling said...
