Waffles and Mr. Two O'Clock

ELLIE:  Hi everybuddy, Ellie here! Today the deer family came by for a visit. It was getting kind of dark so Glogirly didn't get any pictures of them, but she SWEARS that one of the deer was an old friend of Mr. Waffles. The deer came right up to the window to get a closer look at him and it totally reminded Glogirly of Mr. Two O'Clock, who came by to visit during the pandemic. I wasn't even born yet, but Katie was here to see the whole thing. We thought you might like to read the story again! 


WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! Your 2:00 is here. 

KATIE:  My what???

WAFFLES:  Your 2:00. He's right here waiting outside the office door. Don't you have a meeting?

KATIE:  Uh, NO. Just like everyone else, we're working from home. So if some guy is showing up here for a meeting, he better go home and zoom us, or skype us, or something. 

MR. TWO O'CLOCK:  Zoom??? Skype??? What the heck does that mean? I'm here for snacks, not some zoomy-skypey thing.

KATIE:  Don't feed the interlopers, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  I think he likes me, Boss. Did you see his shoes?! 

MR. TWO O'CLOCK:  Shoes??? Who ARE these clowns?

WAFFLES:  Yup, he totally likes me.

We were all hanging out in the office today when all of a sudden, a young deer just walked right up to the door. He was super curious and was completely fascinated with us. He especially had eyes for Waffles. He must have stayed by the door for 30 minutes. If we had opened it, (which we NEVER would) he'd have walked right in.

Hopefully, Mr. Two O'Clock hasn't been given food by any humans, but we're afraid he maybe has considering how brave and tame he seemed to be. We have a very strict do-not-feed-the-wildlife rule here. Except for the hummingbirds. The sweet, sugar-water bar is always open for them.


  1. So wonderful to look back must've been amazing to see the 🦌so close sure did have 👀for😽

  2. I work security at a local branch of a nat'l car auction company and there are two large grassy areas on the property, both of which local wildlife enjoy meadering through and, if they eat grass, grazing on. White-Tail Deer are regular visitors and I enjoy watching them interact with each other. Last summer, one of the does went for a wander through a part of one of the car lots near the gate I was stationed at. I joked with friends via text Jane Doe had decided to go car shopping and sent them pictures. ;) There were also three families of Canada Geese, which meant many adorable goslings and lots and lots of pictures taken and shared. :D
