We have warm sunny in the high 40s weather today.  I was able to do more walking by parking my car far away in the lot at the grocery store then walked to the post office in the next lotThe gas price has been sort-of reasonable but I still combine all the errands in one trip and walk from one place to another as long as it is safe to do so. 
We saw a group of deer (about 8) when we were leaving Mammoth Cave in Cave City, Kentucky (top and above photo).  This particular deer (above) looks like it was starving because it was all bones.  Not sure what happened there whether it was sick or because it just gave birth.  We tried to take more photos but the babies all ran back into the wood.
We saw about half a dozen deer while driving along Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina.  Thankfully the deer were either in the wood (above) or standing in the middle of the road but far enough that we were able to avoid hitting them.
OK, my adoring fans probably are saying, "TOTA, you are really losing your marbles here posting photos of deer while talking about walking."
Well, today is the 13th and parking lot might not be a safe place for walking anymore.  Why?  Because a few months ago, right here in my town, a woman was knocked down by a dear in a busy parking lot.  The woman was injured and hospitalized (she was in a coma for a few weeks) but has fully recovered.  Who would have thought that such incident could happen in a fully developed commercial area.
Just this week, there were three car-deer accidents on Highway 40.  Last month my husband was painting the nativity when we saw a 8-point buck jumping over the fence in our backyard chasing after a doe.  Last week, I saw another buck running across a 5-lane road (Alisa, that is across from Target store on Manchester Road).
So, if you see a short-chubby geezer looking around while walking in the parking lot, ready to take cover, that would be me just being caution!
