Whitetail Deer on the Appalachian Trail
“A wounded deer leaps the highest.” - Emily Dickinson
I was hiking with Leon and his dog Halifax in the Shenandoah National Park when all of a sudden this deer ran up to us staring at the dog. The dog was ahead of us and the deer ran around us as if it wanted to get a better look at the dog. The dog was laissez-faire and did not pay the deer any attention, but the deer acted curious, as if it had never seen a dog before.
Humor for the day - As a drunk guy staggers out of the bar one Friday evening, a fire engine races past, siren wailing and lights flashing.
Immediately, the drunk starts chasing the engine, running as fast as he can until eventually he collapses, gasping for breath.
In a last act of desperation he shouts after the fire engine, "If that's the way you want it, you can keep your bloody ice cream!"
