Smith's, er... Smiths Falls today to look at tractors with a farmer buddy... and let me tell you, it was colder than an ex-wife's heart. Pretty country -- but the highlight of the trip had to be getting t-boned by a deer on the ride back home.
Our animal friend just appeared outta nowhere... crossing the road, we think... emerging behind an oncoming car and exploding against the driver's door.
It was dark and we were so stunned it took a minute just to realise what had happened. It must've been impressive, though... the car behind us pulled over as well, to make sure that we were okay... and provide an instant replay.
Apparently Rudolph wasn't K.I.A. -- he managed to pull himself off the road and head out for parts unknown.
Don't even want to contemplate the carnage had Rudy been another half-step to the right.
Anyway... good prep for our trip into the Devil's Armpit tomorrow. My antenna will be up and swiveling furiously.
