In absolutely no particular order are these photos of our experience with a fawn yesterday morning. I think I'll tell the story in the order in which the pictures should have appeared, and leave it to you to guess which photo should go where. Once upon a time Danny and Mollie were having coffee under the oak tree when suddenly they heard the alarming cry of a baby goat in trouble down in the woods. Mollie checked on the baby goats, which were still safely in the pen, while Big Dan ran to the source of the noise and discovered a fawn being dragged home by Jeb, the puppy, to serve as a new and improved chew toy. Dan grabbed the fawn and brought it to the house. The cute baby deer got rested up, the dogs got tied up, and the girls took him back to where we found him. He went immediately to a flattened place in the grass to wait for his momma like a good boy. She came for him soon afterward and they all lived happily ever after. The End. The sequel will star Fat Suburbanite Dad as "The Deer Slayer" in a year and a half.


  1. You think FSD might see the deer next year on one of his "nature walks", where he likes to wear orange and drink his coffee from a "camo" coffee cup?

  2. I'm glad this story had a happy ending.

    PS Happy birthday, Becky.
