Awesome answers, Deb! I had to laugh at your deer. My husband had to do the same thing! Now MY dad hit a deer and called the police. Both of your goofy dads decided to EAT it! LMAO! I was laughing so hard at my husband, and then YOU had the same thing. Too funny!

Sounds like you've had a pretty sweet life. Hope all continues to go well!

I remember my stepfather hit a deer with his car and then brought it home to "eat" Wasn't one of my favorites.

That was fun to read. I don't think I'd have many more to make bold than you do.

take care,
Dawn
