Don't Moose Around

There is a joke in Alaska, about never seeing enough pictures of moose in the newspaper. If the news is slow, and they don't have any other ideas, you will always see a moose on the front page! Moose in yards, moose by cars, moose with other moose, baby moose, mama moose, papa moose, moose heads, moose hineys, moose running, scooting, waving, and sailboating! Well, you get the ideas.

Anyway, all my Alaskan friends will say "so what? another moose pic?" when I post this. But I have always been fond of moose (you know this if you have followed this blog awhile..remember the ka-YUTE baby moose?) and I just never get tired of them. We see them just about every day, but I rarely stop to take a picture.

This guy made me laugh though, with his funny whitewashed face. And when I pulled over the car, instead of running into the wintery wood, he turned to face me and posed.

Goodbye funny fella. Maybe you will be on the front page of the news when I get it tomorrow.

I didn't know that any newspaper did that! If Houston did that, I'd think something was wrong with our'd be too peaceful. That's so cute though :) Merry Christmas!

Love, Mere

That is so cool! I am so jealous!
BUT did you see the moose on my blog a while back? We have had one living next to our house! I think I posted it back in November!
