Near Miss

I went for a quick ride after work.  Usually, I worry about traffic and debris in the roads.  I was just 1.5 miles from home, when out of the corner of my eye I see two brown shapes running towards me.

"Dogs!", I thought.

One of the shapes ran out in the road right in front of me, the other veered away.  The one in the road was just about 8 feet away.

It was a deer!

It continued across the road and bounded over a fence into a trailer park.

Jeez, you never know!

By the way, the deer statue above was made in commemoration for John Deere.  Before they made tractors, John Deere made bicycles.

Didn't know that! I love deer, I think they are one of the most beautiful creatures.
