Now it isn’t a bad day if I discount several freezing rain showers.
We were out at six thirty and it was fine, a bit of moon and the odd star twinkling away. I took a big torch with me in case I found the deer. Thought a bit of lamping might help to keep the beggars still. I never found them so that was a waste of time.
What do you call a blind deer?
What do you call a legless blind deer?
Still no idea!
Sorry about that I’m trying to get into the Christmas spirit.
Now onto the three-two-one bit.
Two from our second walk this morning…….plenty of deer but miles away and the other side of the river. These are mainly hinds but there are two or three mature stags still with them. Usually they have split into all male and all female groups with immature stags staying with the females. It must have been the warm autumn that has confused things.
It’s a good job the Magi didn’t have to contend with this weather, travelling at night must have been a problem without a head torch, it’s bad enough with. Bet they and the camels fell over a lot. I do with a lamp. I only glimpse the stars about once a fortnight. Have all on, finding Palestine not to mention Bethlehem and a bit of a stable. I wonder what Jesus did with the gold, frankincense and myrrh? (Bet a pound to a shilling Joseph couldn’t spell Frankincense or Myrrh. I had six goes before spill chucker even recognised my efforts and I’m heducated ham I). Those naughty Romans stole it. That’s my best guess.
That’s all for today.
