Wildlife Week

It's been a wildlife week here in Empire. First we got new peeps, then our bluebirds hatched out the second bunch of chicks of the spring/summer, the baby sparrows left the nest yesterday and today when I looked out the garden doors toward the barn, we saw a little deer checking out the progress of our apple tree. By the time I grabbed the camera with a telephoto lense, she was gone.
Normally I would have been at work both yesterday and today, but I've been on call this week and worked Monday night and last night so I decided to work from home these last two days and that proved to be fortutious. Had I been at work, I would have missed three of the four sightings mentioned above. It's a gift.
And on the Crazy News Wire:

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire - A New Hampshire man says he swiped his debit card at a gas station to buy a pack of cigarettes and was charged over 23 quadrillion dollars. Josh Muszynski checked his account online a few hours after the purchase and saw the 17-digit number — a stunning $23,148,855,308,184,500.

I had heard cigarettes were going up, but this has to make a lot of folks stop smoking :)
