Deer At The Parking Lot

Where did the summer go? Hard to believe that it is almost the end of the summer. Have been quite busy with lots of things. I went to the annual Wisconsin state fair last week and was grossed out by all the fry food on the stick. Can you believe that they even had a fry bacon covered by chocolate on the stick this year? Disturbingly bad. Besides that, we finally get some rain. It has been a dry summer and most of the lawn is yellow due to the lack of the rain. Work has been very busy and quite some late night. While I left one of the local hospital for work around 7pm yesterday, we noticed a bunch of deer hanging around the parking lots. There were 3 bucks and 2 does. Each buck was at least a 8-point one. I waved at them and they all just ran away. Guess the summer is coming to an end and the hunting season will start soon! And it will be the volunteer working time for Mexican Fiesta on this coming weekend!

I would be surprised how far the deer would come into Madison. I know they've worked hard to keep greenspace in and around the city, but still.
My head still gets confused with what season we're in. 'It's August, we're going into fall, no.. we're going into spring..' 40 years of seasons are a hard habit to get out of.

Guess I would be confused if I were you too. It will be strange to spend the Christmas under the summer heat! :)
