Chuckle of the Day – Doctor and Mrs. Doolittle

by Sherry Riter in Audrey,Chuckle,Family,Terry

As I’m sure you already know, Doctor John Dolittle appears as the the main character who can speak the language of the animals in a series of children’s books by Hugh Lofting.

That was in the fictional world.

Wild animals are not comfortable around humans in the real world.

Lots and lots of deer not only walk through my sister and brother-in-law’s yard, but they also sit and rest. Obviously, the deer feel comfortable relaxing in the company of this lovely couple.

I know that secretly they are the real Doctor and Mrs. Doolittle.

This is what I miss the most about living at home! I live in the city now, and never get the pleasure of looking out the window and seeing deer (and turkey!).

Nice pic! I bet they are the real Doolittles!! What an amazing site to see in your own yard.

I want to live in a place where deer hang out in my yard. sigh

That is too cute. Reminds me of when I used to put salt licks out for the deer with my great grandpa 🙂

I didn't laugh but I smiled at your elementary school picture! Such a delightful blog! Almost soothing…is that weird to say?

I found you through a comment you left on someone else's post somewhere else in the blogger universe. Glad I stopped by!

Amazing and that would be so fun to wake up too or even just look out a back window to see.

Sandra, I take that as a compliment because that is exactly what I was hoping to attain…a blog of relaxation and a place to step away for just a bit. Thank you!

We had a deer in our yard this summer, but she did not look relaxed! The dogs in our neighborhood made her very nervous. (We are one of the only people who do not have a dog!) She went back to the forest preserve where she belonged that night!

Enjoyed your post! I don't know exactly how I got to your blog but you need to come visit mine. I'm a children's author and I have red hair. Must be fate!


17 Heather July 18, 2010 at 12:45 pm

Wow! That is incredible. Deer would not last very long in our yard. My wild children would be chasing them away!

I love the picture of the deer. Last year a doe and her fawn were in the nature area behind my house. I haven't seen any this year.
