At the End of the Day...How Do You Relax?

My Dad (Gumpaw to the kids) relaxes in a lawn chair while killing horseflies off the deer. Then he freezes the horseflies to feed to the fish in the creek later. My parents live in a valley that is full of very friendly deer. BTW, I did not notice the dead horseflies until I squashed one with my bare foot! Ewww!

The local raccoon came over to enjoy some overripe fruits from Gumpaw's friend, the produce man. So cute! Reminds me of the movie "Elf"..."Does somebody want a hug?" LOL! That does not end very well...

We are back home and today is full of "fun" (can you hear the sarcasm). I procrastinated and I am trying to get Wild Child enrolled in preschool. She is completely "daytime" potty trained. Night time...not so much! LOL!

We are going to the County Fair tonight! Mmmmm....I can smell the funnel cake now!

Happy Thursday!

How cool that the deer will lay that close to the driveway!!! We have deer all over our back yard most nights - They like to bed down near the swings after having a midnight snack in the garden.

Cute racoon - my parents have some that are very friendly little yard buddies.

Very friendly is right. I would say that there is not hunting season around that house! Cute post. M

Those are some critters you got over your way. How amazing. That deer is like a dog. I am surprised it is not panting. The coon can get in trouble though. Those are messy. Have a great time at the fair and with that funnel cake.
