Look real hard and you'll see him
The white buck. He is in the middle of the frame. In all the years we have been in the Northwoods of Wisconsin we have never seen the white deer that are revered. On our last day of vacation I was having a good stare out the passenger side window and swore I saw the ghost like deer in the woods.
Fireman turned around and went back down the highway a ways, and this time he spotted it. I couldn't get very close.
I have been working on a prayer shawl/lap blanket for my father. There are some issues that I continue to work at in our relationship. I was finding myself feeling his frequently challenging personality coming through the stitches. I keep praying about it, and for him. Anyhow my father is an Outdoorsman and taught me to love the Northwoods, a bit by accident. So, when I came across the white buck, I decided then to add it to his lap blanket. Did I see the rarer beauty this year so that it would be part of my father's shawl? What do you think?
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
