Finger Lakes Vacation: Day 3

On Friday (May 27) we awakened to a rainy morning. It rained all day long.

Rainy Day reading

I read “Last Summer Boys: A Novel”, by Bill Rivers. I finished reading this book, after returning home from vacation. It was a good read, and I highly recommend it.

I took a break from reading to prepare a pasta salad.  While preparing the salad I saw a deer walk through the side yard.  I think the deer crossed over Wyckoff Rd into the yard.  I wondered if there were more deer, and I missed seeing them.

I took another break from reading later in the morning to listen to “Smoke: The Disappearance of Damien Sharp”, a podcast produced by Brian Hagberg and Stacey Gross.  While listening to Episode 2 of the podcast, I noticed several buzzards circling overhead.  Bob said they were perched on the roof, wings spread.  Then I saw a deer peeking through a fence in the neighbors yard.  The deer passed through the fence and into our yard, entered the path through the woods and disappeared.  This part of the yard is on the opposite side of the house than the deer we saw earlier.  A little while later I saw a deer’s head popping up and down, looking toward me, as it walked through tall weeds, on the neighbors side of the fence.  The deer that seemed curious about me kept getting closer to the side window by the fireplace, in the living room, where I was sitting.  I felt like I was being watched, when the deer made its last appearance.

I WAS being watched!

The deer soon disappeared down the hill toward Wyckoff Rd.

Be sure to check out Stacey and Brian’s podcast, mentioned above. The podcast is about Damien Sharp, a 22-year-old Warren PA resident, who went missing 20 years ago. The podcast examines the case, the people involved, and the context within which Damien went missing. The first three episodes were released on May 25. I will be listening to Episode 5, which was released today, June 8, sometime this week. 

So, this was a stay at home kind of day. It rained off and on all day long.  Between 7:30 pm and 8:00 pm it looked like it was clearing up.  We saw some blue in the sky and the sun, briefly.  More rain is expected on Saturday.

    Sounds like you enjoyed a great book and podcast! Perhaps the deer was interested, too. 🙂
