Christmas Cards for

Letters to A Recovering Soldier
Hello,

A while ago you had included a piece about writing letters to recovering soldiers.  I am a teacher and this is something I want to do with my students.  I remember that you reported someone had investigated, and that the Red Cross was the best way to get letters to these brave men and women.  Would you mind emailing that article to me so that I make sure my facts are correct and can share it with my colleagues.  Thanks in advance.

Also, thanks for the louisville.com newsletter.  I have been receiving it at my old email address. Long time reader, first time writer.  Since I don't work in Louisville, it helps me keep up to date on the community. Keep up the good work and thanks again for your time
.

Folks from the Big City spend Big Bucks and travel Great Distances to see wildlife.
I remember seeing live deer just over the ridge on a camping trip in the Rockies. There were raccoons, rabbits, geese all kinds of critters -
just like on live TV.

We would buy Christmas Cards with pictures of a Doe and Fawn in a snowy glade. Snow flakes falling, thumper smiling.. Peaceful, natural, aaaah...
beautiful.

that was then this is now
Now I want a gun. and maybe some razor wire

Stinken deer eat everything! They chew up small trees, dig up bulbs, generally they are a nuisance and they are everywhere! We spray nasty coyote juice squeezed from unfortunate coyotes all over the place trying to get rid of deer.
The deer just laugh, and laugh..  (
Grrrrr... )

Deer sneak around in the dark, looking for their nightly salt lick fix.

In the Big City you try to avoid the dudes with the red noses that insist on cleaning your windshield at the stoplight, around here you try to avoid getting Rudolph all over your windshield, and that red nose in the radiator. I was told those silly deer whistles they sell at the truck stops, actually attract deer. Figures .

Some deer, just can't stay away from that salt lick. They lick, and lick, and then they are really flying high. They just can't help it.

Up north they call them "Reindeer " and it is spelled NaCLdeer
in their rare extinct native language it roughly translates to "deer of rough tongue", or "too much salt licking deer" depending on who you ask.

When they go over the line, you see them flying around, dragging sleighs through the night sky. Bizarre. Way too much of the salt lick.

Anyways, reforming these "deer of rough tongue" salt lick abusers normally involves some form community service. Turns out they are terrible at picking up litter, (no opposable thumbs), and look kinda goofy in an orange vest, so they get a lot of small town photo ops with red suited elves this time of year.

Stop by if you see one, next to the Fire Barn on Saturday and Bring Your Camera!
Check that Tongue and Get a Mug Shot
