This mule deer beelines to Alan’s back yard to have dessert.

There are sunflowers off Alan’s back porch and when this deer snaps one off the stem he looks like a little kid eating a piece of brightly colored candy. When I move to a back picture window to get a better look at him, he moves away to a safe distance.

On the edge of the canyon is a new house that has compromised my brother’s view.

People here like deer but hate wild hogs. Deer get into your garden and eat your flowers but they are gentle, peaceful creatures. Hogs tear up everything.

The neighbor’s house on the edge of the canyon is large, expensive. It has a big roof, a double car garage, two porches, several stories.

Why does it take so much too keep people happy and so little to keep a deer happy?

Do deer think about happiness?
