Right in the middle of my soap opera, too.

Mary Nelson, still shaken after a deer jumped through a small living room window of her home Tuesday afternoon, surveys the damage as she recounts what happened. "I was sitting right here watching TV when it came in. I heard this explosion. Next thing I knew, a deer was in my living room," Nelson said. "It rammed the wall and then went into the bedroom, tore it up and went into the other bedroom and made a mess of it, too." The deer eventually exited through a bedroom window.

I'm originally from Arkansas and I've never heard of a deer jumping through the living room window. Days of our Lives must be really awesome these days if even the wildlife want to see it.
I would have freaked out.

Deby... made me think of what's been going on here at SIU... we have a TON of deer on campus and some knuckle-head decided to try to go pet momma and her 2 fawns... she and 2 others ended up in the hospital with broken bones... now SIU has signs posted around campus saying: "Caution: Deer" I've gotten emails about it, there have been newspaper articles about it here... too crazy :) So, maybe it's not so much Arkansas as it is Southern Illinois...

Could you even imagine?? holy cow!! I have encountered many a deer on my runs and have always invisioned headlines"Woman killed by deer while running...." Kind of scary. Just reminds me that perhaps we are getting too big for our britches and taking over places we have no business doing...I love the country but dont believe its going to be country for long....I may have to move :o)

That picture is priceless! Reminds me of Tommy Boy. Sorry we couldn't catch up again when I was in Quincy. We'll just have to make it happen!
