So, I'm heading to our Winkel (monthly meeting of pastors in our circuit) this morning and I see a deer dart across the road up ahead of me. I slow down, 'cause, often, where there's one, there's more. As I'm looking to make sure there aren't more coming, out of the corner of my eye, I see the deer that had crossed in front of me do an amazing 180-degree flip-turn (I know, what's a "flip-turn"? I don't know, but that's what I'm calling it) and start heading back in my direction. A millisecond later, THUMP! "What the? How'd that happen?" I watch in my rear-view mirror and see the deer do like eight flips and land in a heap on the shoulder. And then, as I pull off the road, I watch that same deer, which could not have possibly survived this episode, get up, shake herself off, and dart into the woods, as if nothing had happened. Amazing!
I am thankful that no one was hurt, including, evidently, the deer, but my truck has other thoughts:
