Deer Alarm

In the foggy morning, shortly before six I heard a pair of venison outside the window snorting like they owned the place.  

I don't know if a man running at them in bare feet and a blue bathrobe can really strike enough fear into them to keep them away from the plum trees for very long - but I'll do it every morning if I have to.

It's not really such a bad way to shock the body awake -- a pair of cold, dew-wet feet.  Probably healthier than coffee.
