That could have been dear...

What is it about the countryside and animals?
Does no one teach the animals the Green X Code?
Driving back from Hemel yesterday, at 50mph, a deer shot out of the hedgerow into the road in front of me. During the second that followed I thought "Blimey! at least it'll be across the road before it would be in my way" .
Then another deer shot out behind the first one. This is where I thought I'd better brake. Luckily there wasn't a third one following the second. If there had been that could have been an expensive bump.
Footnote: Robert, sitting in the back, declared, "Dad, I thought they were kangeroos!"
