Talking about deer
Rick’s post on Donna the Deer Lady reminded me of the time one of my drivers hit one
It wasn’t late but it was dark, I got a phone call from the driver that he’d hit a deer on the Seaview Rd (that’s the road to my brothers house, now flooded, made famous by our E.P. Kings president Cheeky Watson)
Off I go, in the Landrover (a Defender, tow anything anywhere) to look for them, it’s a rural area no street lighting and as I said very dark, found them and towed them home.
Much too late to assess the damage, park the cars and only then did I ask ‘where’s the deer?’
The idiots hadn’t even loaded it into the back of the van so that I could at least have a month or twos biltong for my troubles, a sad story indeed
