Whitetail Deer on the Appalachian Trail

NOTE: Headed to Maine to finish my Appalachian Trail Thru Hike. I have prepared a number of blogs and scheduled them to post while I am on the trail. Thanks for following and I will be back soon.

“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!"
