Why is Bucky in My Flowers?

"BUCKY! BUCKY!" I yelled as loud as I could.  "I see you eating my flowers!"

"Huh?" Mumbled a startled Bucky.  "Did someone call my name?"


"Oh, it's you, the lady from the house." Bucky replied.


"Does your Mom know you have sneaked over the fence and are eating my flowers?  She is busy with your newborn little sister and has not been able to keep an eye on you or your twin brother.  I realize you have grown a wonderful new 7 point rack since I caught you in my vegetable garden back in June and you want to show it off, but you should obey your Mom.  Do I need to call her and tell her how you been acting?" I threatened. 

"Uh, oh."  He paused and thought for a moment then said, "If you don't say anything, I promise to behave." 

I nodded and watched as he effortlessly leapt over my fence.


"Shhhh." Whispered Bucky to his brother.  "The lady from the house is looking at us.  Don't tell Mom what I said."  

"Don't tell me what?" Asked Mama Doe

"Oh, nothing."  Said Bucky.  "Nothing at all."

    1. We see Bucky and his family often in the field and I wonder what they are thinking. I would say I hear their voices in my head but I might be committed to an insane asylum.

    1. We noticed that scar also and wondered what happened. We figured he probably tried jumping a barbed wire fence that was too high, or maybe he got in a fight, or was hit by a car, or...you are right. Boys will be boys.

  3. I think I shall blame my black thumb and shoddy landscaping on the deer. We don't have any but I'm blaming them anyway. :)

    1. But you know how to work an electric drill, saw, hammer, screwdriver, and even a PAINT BRUSH! We have been following Lavergne's (the camper) facelift and now Bill has started shopping for campers online. Just looking....
