The deer of the desert

We all were talking to my uncle from the back patio when javelinas started coming around the side of the house; around dusk Sunday. They stopped around the bird seed that mygrandpa pours on the ground each morning. And they just kept coming. We counted13 at one point. My grandparents have been there 34years and they even have never seen that many; captive ether. And yes these wild pigs smelled.

They were not spooked even when mom came down the spiral stairs that leads to the roof deck. One even came within a couple feet of Me to check out my walker. Dad labeled him the teenager of the group.

It was pretty remarkable.
