Next one was good, as well and I learned something. This has been very educational. Ayuh.

Urban Dictionary: stave
I used to hear it from an old timer in New Hampshire. The only time I heard "stave" it was a compound word...."staved-in" as in .... "The fender on his car was all staved-in!"

Yup. I get stove up every time I run that 40 year old tiller in the garden. At least today I didn't get stove all to hell.

One time when I was walking around on Little Cranberry Island, there was a deer curled up in front of my cousin's house just watching everyone walking by. Yes, I have a picture Deer, moose, turkeys, etc. nevah know what you might see Don't feed wild animals btw. If you see a moose headed toward your car, duck.
Turkeys running down the middle of the road while driving 65 miles an hour Scared the crap out of me. I almost hit it. We have a huge deer problem here. I have a friend that ran into one on her bicycle on our bike path. She was seriously injured. I see them down the street in our park and on peoples lawns all the time. My Howie likes to chase them through the park, but I have to check both of us for ticks. There was this rather large buck that followed us through the park one snowy winter night. It was magical but he was running around the streets and I was afraid someone would hit him and be injured. I used to see him from time to time in another small piece of property a couple of blocks from our house. He was quite magnificent. They are a mixed blessing here in suburbia and some need to be culled. It's too dangerous to hunt them here and the few coyotes we have like to eat our pets instead
