Quotes from my mother’s letters to the girls:
When Grandpa rakes leaves, he builds a little fire. The deer come out of the woods and stand around the fire warming up. I take them cups of hot chocolate. Yesterday I taught them how to make s’mores. They roast the marshmallows on their antlers.
Then in the next letter:
We have several inches of snow and it’s cold. The deer are unhappy. They miss the bon fires. One deer tapped on the window and waved a hoof for me to come out. But I don’t have a fur coat. So then he put his hoof up to his ear like, “Call me.”
Now this is important: Don’t ever ever give your phone number to a deer. He will call you at 2 a.m. That’s when deer like to eat and say, “Hey the berry bush at the Smiths is really tasty. It would be so good with s’mores.”
You just have to ignore deer.
