We are living in a ZOO.
This afternoon I was working on a talk at the kitchen table and looked out the window. Right next to our patio was Bambi, right there in my yard. It was this adorable little deer. I couldn't believe it. He just walked all over the yard checking out different patches of grass. And then when he slowly walked past the back yard and down the side, he stopped and stared at me in the window for the longest time. We have all kinds of animals around the yard and it reminds me of a petting zoo at home. President Albright loves animals and has always had exotic pets. (much to my dismay) He has been so fascinated with the little critters here that he bought a bag of food for them, seeds and stuff. He puts it out on the patio and in the yard. We have a couple of little squirrels that venture right up to the door for the food. They walk all over the patio searching for what he has left. One funny thing he did was buy a little food box and set it on the patio. The little critters came and were dragging it across the yard and Pres. went and took it from them. Well he hung it up in the tree right next to the patio and those little guys came, unhooked it, took it down and carried it across the yard with them. They are really smart little animals.
