Here’s what’s going on around here —
I woke up this morning to find a dead deer in the back yard. He may have been the one who used to sleep here as a baby. Animal control came to pick him up while I was at work. She called me because she broke a garden ornament while dragging him out from under the pineapple guava tree. He was quite large, she said. He’d been hit by a car, most likely, and then retreated under my tree to die.
It was a very peaceful place to die, she said, but we both agreed that it was sad.
