I decided to go for a ride after work today. I really needed it since I haven't really been in the saddle for weeks so I headed out despite the wind and rain. I almost turned around after the first three miserable miles but I pushed through and eventually the rain and wind let up. I decided to do the Hillcrest ride. It was late evening by the time I got there and the deer were all out. I must have seen three dozen of them. As I was cruzing back down the hill, I turned the corner to find a large does standing in the road. I grabbed the brakes and started yelling at the deer but the stupid thing would not budge. I wasted all that momentum on that dumb animal. It finally moved and I cautiously passed trying not to startle it back into my path. I swear one of those dear are going to kill me some day!
