Here There and Everywhere

Oh Deer!

AdventureMan and I keep ourselves sharp by exploring new areas. As I was looking around in a newer housing area, I found that the old residents are still hanging on. Deer can be a problem – the nibble on your roses and sweet peas, they cause a lot of damage . . . but don’t they have a right to forage for a meal? Weren’t they there first?

  1. Very Frank Lloyd Wright looking home. The biggest problem I see with us invading “deer country”, is many of us take to feeding the deer. This becomes a problem because they over-multiply when this happens. Then, many deer fail to thrive. You will see the deer get smaller in size, but larger in groups. We have a lot of deer near where we live, and it is perplexing to figure out a way to happily co-habitate.

    It is so nice to watch the deer though, we really enjoy watching them in the evenings when the sun is going down. Most of them have become very tame. They will come right to you, especially if they think you have some corn for them.

  4. Hmmm, Mimfoy, you think Frank Lloyd Wright? I was thinking Craftsman, and it is for sale for around 1.1 million dollars. 😦

    You are right, it is no favor to the deer to feed them. When there are too many, and they starve in the winter, it is awful.

    Holy Smokes, Momcat, cougar?? Keep that little doggy and the new kitty inside! Holy smokes – are cougar protected?

    Mrm – when I was a kid in Alaska, we didn’t worry about deer, we worried about bear. Baby bear are so cute, and our Moms always warned us not to play with the baby bear because their grumpy, huge Moms were nearby.

  8. I can see craftsman. Ouch! That’s expensive. It must be hard to afford a home on the west coast… even the small ones go for a lot.

  9. daggero – please tell me it is not a website about older women preying on younger men!

    Mimfoy – the market here is very uneven right now. There are some great bargains to be had – some fabulous houses going for less than their worth even a year ago. But also – if a house has a great view, it usually has a huge price. Ouch! Ouch!
