Also, it's not always the deer you see that you should be worried about, it's the ones coming up behind it you don't see because you're staring at the first one.

Good advice, thanks!

Chatsworth, huh? That's just south of DEER LAKE HIGHLANDS, right?


To be fair, deer are just about everywhere. Glad you didn't bin it.

Hahahah. Holy crap, it is indeed! I've lived in Los Angeles for basically my whole life (30+ years) and I've never actually heard of Deer Lake Highlands. LA is a big place, apparently
Nice Googling skills, Fatass! lol.

"a DEER, in LOS ANGELES??"

When do the Bucks come in to play?

Either the Lakers, or that other team.
