Andrew Hamm: the Bipolar Express

Ruminations on theatre, music, and just about anything else that crosses my bipolar brain.

Good Morning!

He started in the front yard around 7:30 this morning and alertly made his way around the cul-de-sac for about ten minutes before trotting off into the deep woods.

I'm pretty sure this is a different buck from the one I saw last month. I didn't see that one for as long as this morning's, but I'm pretty sure Mr. November had four points, and this one had six.

Pretty soon we're going to have to start giving these guys names to keep them straight.

    Part of the joy of living sub-URBAN is that you are also sub-RURAL!

    Glad to see you are finding joys in your first Christmas in the new home. I look forward to seeing the House of Hamm in person!

    He looks delicious. You need to get a bow. :)

    I'm pretty sure I can't shoot a deer in the street in from of my house. But venison is quite delicious, particularly in chili...

    You'd be surprised what you can do with a bow, and deer is in season. Maybe you can't shoot the deer in the street but if you could entice them into your back yard - yum time. Rose has a Sorority friend whose husband bow hunts in the 2 acres behind their house all the time in Vienna, VA. He scores lots of goodies!

    I always say I need to start hunting. As a motorcyclist deer are a major threat to me, every one that's not out and about is good for me. Plus they are delicious. I'd have to get over the sentimentality of shooting Bambi's dad, but I'll bet that wouldn't hold me back too long.

    I think I was watching a viedeo recently of our father talking about hunting telling a story - he rarely had any luck in the 60s and 70s when he hunted up at the Farm, the last day of the last season he ever hunted - really the last hour - they were on their way back to the house to pack up and go home - he nabbed a buck!

    I saw a white deer in the skyline drive area a few weeks lovely! I know the deer population is out of control, but the thought of people hunting these beautiful creatures makes me want to cry!

    Makes me want to cook. :-)

    The other day I was walking my dogs in the field behind our house (the field includes the home firle for the State H.S. Champion Stone Bridge Bulldogs football team) and the dogs, used to chasing rabits, went a little bonkers for some deer in the distance. My dogs are not large, I told them, those aren't rabbits, those are deer, and they are a lot bigger than you and full ycapable of kicking your collective arses!

    But Tucker, being a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, probably just would hav herded them anyway. :)

    I would have loved to see Tucker herding deer, crying "HAR! HAR HAR!" all the way.

    I couldn't handle killing a deer. I escort bugs out of my house instead of killing them. But I support hunting them, and certainly would take venison if presented to me.
