Bad morning

Actually, not much was wrong with the morning (other than being tired and beat up from last night’s adventures – more on that later) until halfway to work this morning. Just before Route 3 merges with 46W, there was a sudden slow down in the left lane. People swerved away from the shoulder, and as I reached that spot I saw the trouble – a deer lying on the side of the road. Worse yet, he was still alive. I nearly cried when I saw him struggle to get to his feet. I drove like a maniac to get to work so I could search for a number for Animal Control. I finally found a website with all of the relevant NJ wildlife contacts, but the phone has been busy for some time. I can only hope that someone else called them about it. Still, it will be stuck with me for a while – more so if I find tomorrow nothing was done.
