i neglected to mention earlier that jim took two deer during archery season this fall: a doe and this nice eight point buck.
he's a regular legolas, if legolas shot deer instead of orc and traded his blond tresses for a camo balaclava...
notice dylan's complete lack of horror. our friend patrick got a deer first, and when it was hanging (i know) and i was out at a MOPS girls' night, jim took our toddler up to see it and let her pet it. all week, all she she she could talk about was "pet pat's deer! see pat's deer!"
oh, we country all right.
