A deer in the Manor

I was sitting here quilting and heard a crash. Thought Pirjo had dropped one of the large planters they are putting on our side patio. Then I heard excited voices so went to see what was
the matter. First it sounded like Laura said, "There's a bear in the bldg.!" but she repeated it and said "There's a deer in the bldg.!" It had been in the courtyard and something frightened it
so it came through the window across from the laundry room!! Had run toward Lee Square and
going too fast to head toward another window so went behind the chairs and out the door window that faces the laundry lines. Pirjo was out side and amazed to see half a deer hanging out the window until, then came the back half. No blood left behind. It had run around the property but the fence was too high to jump so too fast to get a picture it went out in front of the
garages and down the drive. Called the paper. He must have recognized the name as asked if
my husband was a minister there. But in the next days front page news about the deer he was
listed as manager so has been receiving some kidding.

Then yesterday a lady from the local public television came by. I happened to be in the hall so
got interviewed! We have dial up but Lahti's have dsl so we saw it at their place. Didn't look as
stupid as I feared!

Too funny! How much damage did the deer do? Wonder how often that kind of thing happens.

About a month ago a deer went into
a nursing home and a year ago into
the same home! Just broken glass,
no blood, no poop, no pee! Just
some chunks of hair here. Pauline said anyone can go to Lakeland Public Television KAWB on their computer and get the archived report from Tues. dk

Kuoppala and Inlaws said...

Great job Mom on your interview. Next time I see you, I'm looking for an autograph :)

Kuoppala and Inlaws said...

Great interview! And what a fun surprise. The most wildlife i've had stop in is a chipmunk one of the cats brought in that got away from the cat and lived in the basement for a bit before i caught it.

apparently a fox came into town and ate a neighbor's cat the other night, so mine are staying indoors and going crazy - probably wishing they had a chipmunk to play with.
