Add this to today’s list of Things I Love:

Earlier today, around 2 PM, I was sitting at the kitchen table, working, when out of the corner of my eye, I thought I saw a horse galloping through our suburban subdivision. I looked up, startled, and saw this:

A herd of deer! About seven of them. I grabbed my camera just before they ran out of sight, and snapped these pictures from the dining room window. I ran downstairs and caught the deer standing in the yard beside someone’s house:

They ran off, but I was too slow this time to see where they went.

(I’d probably love it a lot less if I had a yard of my own. Can you imagine the damage those guys could do to a vegetable garden?)
