It starts when you walk in to Walmart one day and notice suddenly everything is green. Aisle after aisle of all manner of orange and green. That’s when I realize what time of year it is, and what’s coming next. Summer, being a fairly long down-time, finally fades to make room for the green and orange.
Green, brown, beige, another green, and black all randomly swirled together and draped in blaze orange. A hideous, jarring combination of colors that would never be allowed in the same room in the city.
But this is the country – and it’s deer season.
