Moose Sighting!

May 30, 2010

This is not what you expect to see out your kitchen window. It was hauling between my house and the neighbor’s abode, so I dried my hands on my sweater as I dove for the camera and told the girls to go look out the back window.

Somehow, I only see these beasts when they’re dropping the velvet off their antlers (disgusting, fyi), or when they’re losing their winter coats. Also, seeing a moose in town is completely different from seeing that same moose blocking your path on a mountain trail while a dangerous Montana lightning storm has your hiking mate quaking in his boots. A moose is an unpredictable creature. He/she could leave you alone, or attack. A moose between you and home = a bit scary. A moose reclining in the grass under your laundry line = so cute! (Even if he is ugly as sin) If you zoom in, you can see his little antler buds.

I had other things I wanted to blog about today, but they’ll have to wait. Time to get my little monkeys on the bedtime train!

    It looks like a homeless moose. Bullwinkle, is that you?? Fame has not been kind.

    That must have been completely nuts!

    lol! Oh, so true. He looks so depressed and mangy.

    He ended up munching in our backyard because our lawn is the longest in the neighborhood. šŸ˜‰
