This weeks Theme is Childhood
This weeks theme is Childhood but no one said that it had to be about human childhood. I found this photo and thought it was absolutely adorable. Actually I feel more than a little sorry for the poor fawn. It looks cold and lonely doesn’t it?
My mother actually had a pet deer when she was growing up.
This was back in the days when people truly hunted for food. I think her father or one of her brothers had killed her fawns mother and they brought the baby back to the farm where my mother quickly adopted the baby deer. If I remember right that story doesn’t have a happy ending because when the deer got older an other hunter, perhaps from a neighboring farm mistakenly shot the pet deer.
