They had me down in Sallyport 3 tonight. You couldn't give me that job with twice the pension and a gold watch.
I spent four hours driving around in circles in the P-car and four hours alternately sitting in that smelly shack reading a book and walking around and around and around and around the sallyport.
The only difference with doing that half of the P-car circuit is there are more critters down at that end. I counted fifteen deer (mostly does, one or two young bucks) out in the field and some even up by the road.
There was one fat something eating acorns off the road for awhile. A woodchuck or a groundhog or a marmot or an ibex or something. Whatever it was it was fuzzy and rotund and if it had come inside the fence somebody probably would have promoted it.
At one point I stopped and checked out four or five deer up under the trees eating. I saw some movement out of the corner of my eye and saw, not ten feet away behind a tree, this small black cat watching the deer.
It was all crouched down behind the tree roots and had that tail just twitching back and forth like it was trying to figure out which one of those deer it was going to eat. I just had to laugh.
When I came back around again the cat was across the road behind the fence and still watching the deer but from a much safer distance. It had this look in it's eyes like "Man! Those things are bigger than I thought! Maybe I'll wait here for a smaller one to come by."
Sitting in the car with my duty belt on has got my back hurting. Took my pain and sleepytime drugs.
