  1. Reminds me of the Seinfeld episode when pigeons kept getting in George’s way. 🙂 Enjoyed.

  2. You should drive a garbage truck or a snow plow.

      My son drives a big-arse snow plow for the county. They don’t stop on a dime. It’s not pretty when a deer gets caught in the wing. British Columbia has a neat way of keeping the “livestock” off the roads in the mountains. Along the highways where the areas are heavily populated with deer, etc., it’s fenced and there are openings where the animals can get into the woods off the highways, but they can’t get back out onto the roads. Kind of like a turnstile. I thought it was very cool the way they did that. We don’t have that here in Ontario.

    • I actually mostly drive a Ford Flex these days rather than my truck.

  3. I have hit a moose before and lived to barely tell about it. Also, once a deer ran up alongside my car, clipped the side then vanished back into the woods. Maine is a crazy place.

  4. I thought at some point you were going to say a few lawyers got in your way…

  5. That there is a lot of roadkill stew, my friend!

    That’s not the best Christmas song I’ve ever heard, but it’s not the worst. Very funny Mr B. R. C. You always cheer me up.
