On a recent weekend outing in Carolina North Forest right here in Chapel Hill, they heard a rustling nearby and stopped to watch this beautiful creature standing not 20 feet from them.
She froze, looked up at mom and dad, then simply lowered her head and continued grazing.
Then, the next day they were back out there in a different part of the forest and spotted this beauty staring at them. They watched her for a moment, dad got his phone out for some quick pictures, then they quietly left her in peace.
While out doing some errands on the 4th, in a wooded residential neighborhood nearby they had to stop the car for a mom and her two fawns hopping across the road. They were too quick for pictures, but the young'uns were absolutely adorable, though not as adorable as me.
And now for something not about me
I'd love to I'm being forced to share. Once in a blue moon dad heads out to the Carrboro Arts Center to warble sing his heart out with Pop Up Chorus. He's been doing this off and on pretty much since we moved to Chapel Hill, and he's real excited (yawn) about the songs they did the other night.
There's usually a good sized crowd in attendance, and the last outing saw more than 200 joyful members belting out Abba's "Dancing Queen" and Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody". "I mean, Come on, who doesn't love these?!" cried the big guy with the psycho falsetto voice (my opinion. Trust me, he waltzes around this place croaking and bleating unrestrained).
Anyway, like I said, he's real excited about these two hits, songs from his youth about a hundred fifty years ago. Now and then he goes on and on about the seventies, gets this glazed, sad look in his eyes and starts babbling something about the good old days (uh oh, he's telling me to get back on topic).
You can find Pop Up Chorus on YouTube, Facebook, Myplace, Yourspace, whatever really awesome social media-hey-look-at-me-I-wanna-share-with-the-world thingy it is you humans do.
|Um, excuse me, now can we get back to me? (hey, check out the big guy's stinky toes back there)|
