I noted with interest the comments on my preceding entry. Several folks were bothered by the dead deer, and some by the idea of an eleven-year-old boy being so happy about killing the deer. I had nothing to do with it anyway: the child is no relation to me... although I have no problem with deer-hunting, especially if one intends to use the meat (and I'll certainly take any ground venison folks may offer; it makes the BEST chili). My husband has tried, in vain, to procure a deer on our property this year. Thank goodness we have two pigs we'll butcher in February or March (let the weak of stomach beware, there may be pictures!).
I am proud of the fact, however, that nobody attacked me or my character. They all seem to realize it's MY journal, whether they approved of the entry (and the picture) or not. You really don't know how refreshing that is. Thanks, J-landers, for being mature in your comments. I intend to show the same maturity when I visit your journals.
