The Realm of the Verbal Processor

Jarvis's Ramblings

Locked Antlers

I was having a hunting conversation with a co-worker and was showing him the pictures below. My dad found these when I was about three years old. These two very mature bucks had been fighting and got their antlers locked together, and because they couldn’t get their antlers separated, they ended up dying or killing each other. They were found on private property in Mississippi back in November 1974. Somewhere out there is a picture of a very small verbal processor sitting in the center of the antlers.

Just a note: the antlers were locked together hard. Before they were mounted, my dad and someone else tried unsuccessfully to pull them apart. Another note is that both of these deer were large enough to make the Boone and Crockett record book. Clicking on either picture will take you to the higher res version on my Flickr site.

“Winter” in Florida

A couple of days ago a “cold” front came through Florida where I live. The lows at night have been around 48-50 degrees. This morning while driving to work I stopped at a grocery store to pick up something. It was really amusing to me to see the really large display of firewood for sale in front of the store. Yep…”winter” has hit Florida. If the temp drops to 40, I expect to see people walking around in parkas.
