And what to my wandering eyes did appear?


A skunk and a deer, trotting side by side down the road, on my way work this morning.

Just when I thought I'd seen all....

I discover, I not!

I'd never actually seen a skunk running before this morning, was a sight see. Are they always that awkward and clumsy looking trudging along down the road?

And, what's up with that deer?!?

I could smell that skunk from inside my car cruising past them doing 45 mph.

I be honest.... I still find this country life pretty amazing.

the reader told me to watch out for skunks....

You were right! They are out here!

Happy Wednesday!

    They're filming a new version of Bambi. That was Bambi and Blossom, out on a break from shooting scenes.
I would totally watch a live action Bambi movie!

    We have a lot of wooded areas in the city here and i see or smell skunks almost daily. They do look odd when they run.
I have to say.... I'm not a real big fan of skunks. I know... God's creatures and all.... but that smell turns my stomach.

    Yes, skunks move in an unusual motion when running. It is the way they are put together with shorter front legs then back legs. It looks clumsy until they stop and raise up in the back. At that point, you want to be ahead of Paul heading away from M Le Pew.

    Bambi and Blossom. Might be an interesting alternate story. Would Thumper be jealous?
I had no idea their front legs were shorter than their back legs.... Learn something new every day!

    So were the skunk running away from the deer after it sprayed it? I don't know how long you've lived in the country but just think of the things you've seen and well see. To top it off the peacefulness, and tranquility of it all. Happy Thursday I hope you're having a good day!!
I've only lived here since mid September, and I've seen a lot! LOL It is very peaceful.... I can't even tell you how much I enjoy not having to hear neighbors in the hallway or the apartment below me. Happy Thursday to you too!

You know, I just thought of something. A lot of hunters use a skunk smell to mask their human scent.... Maybe those deers and skunks are actually nature friends??

    Ms. secret_lade,

    Some of the sight we see in the country astound people. I seen a great many critters just wandering along together. I am still amazed when I see thing like you saw.

    Just be careful if you ever see a skunk during the day, because 9 out of 10 times that skunk is sick or rabid.

    At dusk and dawn I don't worry about them too much, but I still give them their space.
It's still dark out when I leave for work, so I don't think this particular skunk was cray-cray. I didn't know that about skunks being out during the day time though! I will keep that in mind if I ever do see one!

    Walking together? Really? Hmmm, that's cool. Sorta like Bambi and his bunny ๐Ÿ‘ฏ friend.

    So I was taking my very, very early morning walk, down by the darkened lake โ€” a couple of weeks ago โ€” when guess who I ran into not far from the gazebo? Black with a white stripe and not a care in the world. I was ten feet from him before I noticed.
    Damn, I RAN in the opposite direction โ€” while swallowing my screams.
    It's the forth time I've run into that guy. ๐Ÿ˜ถ

I have never been close to one.... I've seen very few actual living skunks in the wild, most of the time they're dead on the side of the road. You certainly know when they're around though.... Yikes!

A couple of weeks ago I saw a fox casually strolling down the turning lane in the middle of town when I was headed to work. Crazy! It's always dark now when I'm headed to work, so I see a lot of critters now. It's also that time of year when it's getting dark out by the time I leave work too.... Ugh
