Well, dbd33 of Going Country said it was road and deer season and last night around midnight a fawn walked out in front of my car. I was just leaving the town so wasn’t going very fast, and nor was Bambi, so we avoided a deer/car interface.
It left me with both a feeling of pleasure at having seen such a beautiful creature staring at me through the windscreen, and also a rather shaky feeling at having seen such a beautiful creature staring at me through the windscreen.
So I drove on rather cautiously, mindful that deer with less good road crossing skills might be out there.
A few kms further on the car that has been following me puts on its light show….
Indeedy, another policeman. I pulled over, wound down the window and waited. The officer came up with the torch in front of his face, with it shining down on mine. Well of course I couldn’t see his face, so couldn’t hear. I explained and he moved so that I could see him, excellent. This time I was driving too slowly. He wanted to know why I was pootling along and the deer explanation was good so he left and I drove on. I suppose drunk drivers drive slowly.
So, another deaf aware police officer. This is good.
Bambi and I survived unscathed. This is also good.
