I had a good, long, and hard belly laugh yesterday which was much needed after the day we all had yesterday in Kalamazoo, after a local police officer was shot on duty. Luckily the officer is going to be okay. This deer in Mattawan however, not so sure. But that doesn't mean there aren't people out there who care and are willing to go out of their way to make people laugh. So this is a little graphic.

There has been a dead deer on the north side of the road on Glidden St, which branches off of Front St in Downtown Mattawan for at least 2 months. I've seen this  poor animal everyday coming home from work, until yesterday when I saw two shimmering circles waving around in the distance, I started laughing by head off. Someone went out of their way to buy a "Get Well Soon" and "Feel Better" balloon for the poor lil' guy.

THE FOLLOWING IMAGES ARE SOMEWHAT GRAPHIC
