We Lost It
Remember the last time we drove country roads there was still one we wanted to go back to explore. Well we lost it, we couldn't find it. We turned right off the highway and headed the right direction but somewhere along the way we zagged when we should have zigged. We didn't even see that road so we ended up on some roads we have been on several times. One being where John and his then wife built a house and lived. She still lives there so we just viewed it from a distance. Though of stopping for a cup of coffee but thought better of it and passed on by. We saw a deer cross ahead of us and it was in no hurry. Then in another place we saw two together. They were crossing toward a deer proof fence and we knew they would not be able to get through so I slowed down so as not to scare them when they realized they would have to turn and go back across in front of us as there was no way they could scale that fence. More and more ranches are putting them up to keep the deer in their ranches. Many of them are turning it into a business and charging people from the cities to hunt. It is convienent to San Antonio for people to come out after work to hunt and then go home the same night. Others come from Dallas, Houston and all over Texas. Good for the motels, restaurants but not good for the deer. Yes I know they do have to be thinned out but I don't like to think of that. Well it was almost dark and John was checking his watch every few minutes as if he had missed a bus so we started home and got here right at dark.
