Yikes!

Today I set up my tent for this weekend's show in Charlevoix with help from my sister Denise and some man who volunteered to help with the 'tall' stuff.  I picked up a few must-have items from Hearts to Holly, the quilt shop plus a new Charlevoix sweatshirt in case it gets chilly.
We're expecting rain and 25+mph winds later tomorrow.  Hmmm.....
A crazy thing happened on my way back to Denise's after closing up my tent for the night.  Minding my own business, a deer ran across the road in front my car as I was going about 50 mph.  I slammed on the brakes and thumped it.  It ran off along with at least three other deer as I moved the car off the main drag to inspect the damage.  Amazingly only my side lamp was knocked out.  There was a hunk of fur on the grill.  I walked up and down the street and never did find any broken pieces and the deer was long gone.  Hmm....
