We’ve got a messy storm blowing in, so Cait and a friend wanted to get in what may be the last of the skating for a bit.
Cait takes a moment to tighten up her laces.
Even though the ice is 5 inches thick (thick enough to safely drive a car on) and we have a long-line rope on the fence post, I still wind up checking on them from time to time. My old EMT safety habits die hard.
What I quickly saw was that they had company. Can you see their eyes glowing up on the ridge?
I wondered how long it would take the girls to notice. Cait usually has a sixth sense when there are critters around.
Ah, there– they’ve both caught sight of them.
What they can’t see (because of the floodlights) that I can see is that these are our five deer.
Pow-wow to decide what to do.
When in doubt… move on out!
Both girls and deer have scared each other off.
Hmm, that ice looks inviting… I think I’ll go for a spin.

Oh Karen, *hockey playing deer*, wouldn’t that make a great Christmas card for your family to send out next year? LMAO as I write! (Laughing my antlers off)…..
Cindy, I can imagine them playing hockey with their antlers in the wee hours of the night. LOL
DeeDee, someday we’ll have to compare ER stories!
LOL…I love it. Those glowing eyes are enough to spook anyone…and so are girls on skates :)

I would have high-tailed it out of there too. I didn’t know you had EMT days…I have old Med-tech in an emergency room days behind me :)
Guardians of the night no doubt. What you may not know is they were probably waiting to get their own skating party on! “Antlers On Ice”, yeah, I think that’s the name of their club….
