I should be writing. Instead…wildlife management.

no deer
Seems local deer have denuded [Will that word choice get this post an ‘X’ rating? Anything for readership, right?] our front yard lately. The crocus plants are reduced to nubs and the nandina appear to be less than productive.

Always armed with rational solutions, I took matters into my own hands.

It was obvious–appeal to the deer’s logic. Let them know they’re not welcome.

So far, the sign’s been up for an hour. No deer in sight.

I knew it would work.

My wife–cynic that she is–seems dubious.

If the deer do reappear, it will be time for a summit and a ‘candid exchange’ with hopes for peaceful coexistence.

More later. Stay riveted.
