Thread veer: One might not be able to make a sheep bark like a dog, McGrath, but I have been barked at by a deer. Amazing thing to experience. She was standing on the other side of a deep, narrow gully, obviously warning a young'un that there was an unknown afoot. She knew I was close by but because I didn't move, she couldn't locate me. The sides of her breast and belly went in and out like a quick bellows and her mouth opened as the hoarse bark sounded.

This was soon after I quit smoking and I've never forgotten that it would never have happened in my smoking days. That was enough reward right there.
