Crossing Guards

It used to be that when a deer crossed a road, it was done at high speed, the deer leaping out of the woods and making a break for it, with nary a look to the side.

But there are now so many deer in Morris County, New Jersey that they've become completely domesticated. They're even starting to act like good, law abiding citizens.

Driving along Mendham road early this morning on my way to work, I saw three deer lined up at the side of the road, looking both ways, patiently waiting for a break in traffic so they could amble across safely.

I just hope they don't hail from UK so that they remember to look left first instead of right. Next thing you know, one of the deer will designate himself a crossing guard.
