:shock: Russ IthacaVTX meets up with me at my house to collect some Sturgeon '07 flyers to pass along to the band, so that they may give them out to their loyal fans......I tell him the flyers are at work, and I had to run to town anyhow, so we set off for Granola Central(for all you outsiders, that's Ithaca, NY).
After getting the flyers, I tell Russ that I've got 2 stops to make, both in the city, then it's time for an adult beverage. Right after stop #1, in the heart of "Tha Hood," on State St near the intersection of Plain St, I proclaimed "Welcome to tha Hood," out loud and we start rolling off with the green light.
I see something coming at me from right, on the sidewalk in front of me as I'm in the intersection........it looked like a big dog running for its life. No......it was a deer!! In the heart of Ithaca, this thing is running down the sidewalk, darts out in front of me in the crosswalk.
The only thing I could do was stare, I almost hit it. Had I done one of my signature starts, I'd have either hit it, or it would have plowed into me. I can't help but laugh and think out loud at that moment that today is Friday the 13th. Wow. :shock:
