Heartbreak Highway

I do a fair amount of driving, and it's always a little tougher at this time of year.

The sides of roads and highways are littered with deer carcasses, and you can see the live ones in the woods, just off the shoulders, waiting to dart out in to traffic.

I know the animals are active at this time of year, and the population is up.  The yearly thinning of the population, at least with guns, is still more than a month away.  Yes, I know they can do a fair amount of damage.

It breaks my heart.  They're such beautiful animals, and I hate to see them meet their end on a highway.

There really is no major moral to the story today, other than to say be careful.
