Lazy Americans

Lesson of the day.  Deer were originally called darlings by the early settlers, due to their non threatening nature.  But, as Americans tend to be lazy, they shortened the name to deer since it was easier to say and spell.  By any name, though, it's always a treat when you see 'em.

  1. I knew that but had forgotten...Thanks for the word lesson! They are not darlings to me...they are probably asking "Which way to Judith's?"
