A large, pink pig?  When you got close, he didn't fly away did he?    I guess wild pigs can grow into real monsters, but I don't think most are pink.  Don't see why they couldn't be though.

That place in Kansas City is actually a "biker bar", and the noise, particularly when someone is leaving, can be horrendous.  Didn't phase those deer a bit, and I don't think they'd live more than a couple trips across that highway.  They must feel more at home there than I do.  John

I am glad they did not go too close to the highway.

Last weekend I saw a pig grazing on the grass on the side of the road! A pig! Had to be owned since I do not believe there are wild pink large pigs out here.

On the way to Florida it was dark before I got to northern Alabama and I saw maybe a dozen deer.  That was nothing compared to when I got back to the Lake Of The Ozarks.  Going past the lake I estimated seeing maybe 60 deer.  I didn't drive as fast as the speed limit as I was already tired and those deer obviously worried me.

Last night though, in Kansas City, I was amazed to see deer.  Peggy, I don't know if you remember where this is, and I've been told it's grown up a lot over the past couple of decades, but I played at a place on the corner or 40 highway and Phelps road.  It's right on the Kansas City/Independence border.  The parking lot where I took my breaks is in Kansas City and the building sits in Independence.  Across the highway on the Kansas City side, is a vacant lot of about an acre, covered in weeds.  Beyond that is a thick grove of trees.  While I was outside last night, 4 deer came wandering out of the trees and stood there for some time, just grazing.  Obviously used to the urban environment, they never got too close to the highway.  Such a beautiful sight in such an unlikely place.  They were there the whole 15 minutes of my break.  When I came back out about midnight, there was just one left.  John
