This past Tuesday at about 1 p.m., I came out of the back door (east door) of the Steeple Building and started to walk down the brick sidewalk. I was several steps away from the southeast corner of the Steeple Building when a doe, running at full speed, came around the corner. It screeched to a 4 legged stop several feet from me. It stared at me, I stared at it, while the song “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” flashed thru my mind. Then the doe took off at a sprint, continuing east on Main Street. If I had taken three more steps toward the corner, I would have had a head-on collision with the deer. The moral of this story is to watch out for crazy deer, even during the day,
Bishop Hill is a popular destination. You never know who you going to run into.
