I wish more people would go out and save a wonderful

Me, too! I have noticed a new presence who told me his name was Clyde -- 
guess that means I'm up to 31.  A while back I tried to get people around here to 
donate some dry food for them, but only one person responded with a 7 pound 
bag.  I use between 50 and 75 pounds of dry food per week.  I have to share an 
awesome experience my grandson and I had last Saturday.  We arrived at my house 
around dusk and were just getting out of the car when I hear a huge commotion 
-- lots of running feet and grunting.  I looked up to see a tiny buck (looked 
like an 8-point) and about 8 tiny does running as fast as they could into the 
church yard across the street. One of the does ran into the magnolia tree 
there when she first saw us.  They all stopped and looked at us (we were only 
about 25 feet away from them), and, as if they recognized us, the does calmly 
began to graze while the buck slowly walked to the edge of the woods where he 
faded into invisibility. I'm sure they were running from the literally hundreds 
of hunters in the woods just past the city limits.  I am always shocked to see 
just how small the deer in this area really are.  They way they are described 
under the kill shots in the paper ("Big Bad Bucks") always makes them sound
