Deer Trouble

My husband will be looking for a new car ( I'm sure I will help ). He hit a deer on the way to work yesterday morning. He said, "when I went around the corner there she was." Thank the Lord he was not hurt! We always buy used vehicles, so we only purchase liability insurance; thankfully, (we do not remember doing this) we purchased some extra car insurance that covers accidence do to animals. Well a deer is an animal, Odocoileus virginianus, head and body length, 4-6 ft., Habitat- forests, swamps, and adjacent brushy areas, in other words, beside paved country roads. Sadly his car is only worth about $600-$800. He really has gotten the goody out of it! Of course this is better than having nothing at all! We did just receive our tax money, Buy, Buy bathroom!

On a funny note, someone pulled up beside my husband ,in a truck, and ask him what he was going to do with the deer; not," are you ok, can we help you?" My husband traded the deer for the use of their cell phone. God is good and has cared for us thus far, and I know that,"all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28. Have a great day and watch out for the Odocoileus virginianus! (:

Oh, that's to bad! There are a lot of deer alongside of the highways over here too. Just a few nights ago we seen about 15 of them right beside the road.
