Reign Deer Games

Our neck 'o the woods, however rural, holds a shocking regional lack of Xmas spirit. I'm talkin' the glaring lack of reindeer - who evidently reside a LOT further North than California.

My Dad attempted to explain this fact to me; but once I espied my first stag at the tender age of five, all thoughts of "Reindeer R North' went right out the window (or, to my way of thinking - up the chimney...).

What was lacking in antler points was MORE thqan made up by the embodiment of Rudolph himself, apparently oblivious to his celebrity status, munching grass right in the San Francisco city limits out by the golf club's priced expanse of lawns.

I've been 'hooked' on deer ever since; somehow convinced that a sleighful of gifts waits just around the corner from every deer sighting.

Diane, You are so right about the cute little Bambi deer ravaging the cultivated plants of the garden and flower beds in neighborhoods. Even though my big garden is surrounded by city, I have seen deer in the wooded areas which means I will be contending with their greedy nature. I didn't know that they would eat cactus but it doesn't surprise me. They are able to leap tall fences in a single bound to nibble on a stalk of sweet corn. I have plans to thwart their attack. Have a Merry Chirstmas and a Happy New Year.
