Santa's lost his reindeer

I attract big animals ... in big groups often. There were the cows at community 22 I wrote about a couple of months ago. Then it was the big moose in the middle of the road a few weeks ago. And dont you think tonight, walking home from my friend, I met a huge flock of reindeer in the middle of the street. They were about 15, standing there under the streetlights, between all the houses and looking at me. I was chasing them, trying to get a picture, but it was dark and they decided to fear me and made a run for it. I dont live in the wilderness. I live in the regional capital (though its small). Its funny. Lovely arctic exotic experiences... every day of the week...

Pic: Imagine 15 of these, in the dark. :-) This is taken down the street from my house during summer.

What an amazing picture that would have been! But I guess it's only lucky that they were afraid of you.

I have always held that animals love people who are kind at heart. Now I've met one. Sad you did not get that pic. Other chances will come, though.

Hey, I used you in a poem without asking you first. Just humour. Hope you don't mind

That did not work, did it? Is the problem really fixed?

Of course I dont mind, Nana Yaw! It's an honour. :D

Maya: yeah reindeer are very scared of people who are not dressed like sami people, who own them. :)
