Oh Deer!

This past week, cousin Brian (hunter extradinaire) gave a deer to Allen. So, on Saturday Dad and Al played butcher boy in the barn. Dad really overdid it, but he was determined to stay for the whole thing. And he loved every minute of it! But boy, did he crash when he made it back to the house. He didn't move off the couch for the rest of the day. We're all learning to let Dad do the things he enjoys even when we know he is overdoing it. If it is too much for him and he is wiped out for a few days, that is OK. At least he got to enjoy the moment. Trying to tell him he shouldn't do something is pretty useless anyways, so we might as well get some benefit out of seeing him enjoying himself.
