Natural Sightings: The buck stopped here

Patrick Nance took this photo behind his house in Stallion Springs of a California Mule Deer (Odocoileus hemionus californicus) buck laying in the shade. At the time this photo was taken on Sept. 13, this buck still had some velvet left on his antlers. This is the fuzzy, vascular-rich tissue that helps their antlers grow so fast. In late summer and early autumn when the antlers are done growing, the velvet grows thin and dries out, and the buck removes it from his now-hardened antlers by rubbing and polishing his rack against trees and shrubs.

Ghost sightings around Mooresville predate Lake Norman

I have never seen an actual ghost. It doesn’t mean that I don’t believe in them, but I have not been privy in this life to have experienced anything remotely paranormal. What is irritating about that factoid is that I am not afraid of spirits or the paranormal and I welcome a visit from some restless apparition. I have a good hundred questions that I would ask them about life in the other dimensions, the very nature of death and “passing on,” or continuing with life in the afterlife, so to speak. Did they see heaven? Can they see what the past was truly like as opposed to the bunkum history books say? What did it feel like to move on from this world to the next? Was it peaceful, aside from the initial terror and pain that seems inevitable unless you die in your sleep like Sean Connery?
