  1. Thank you for making my day! I’m sure this wasn’t the reaction you were looking for, but do you know how much I laughed when I saw that moose? The skies are beautiful, even for your ‘beastly cold’ winter..;-)

    1. Hey you, where you been Courting Disaster? Missed ya and I’m pleased you enjoyed the frigid photos! Nothing says Canada like moose eh? The sky is the only saving grace to the winters here. Brrrr How is it in your neck of the woods?

      1. Friggin’ cold! I would be perfectly okay with that if I could be like a bear and hibernate somewhere for the winter. I take it you’ve gotten your share of snow already,huh?
        I love the moose. Just the thought of driving along and out steps a giant moose into traffic…it’s enough to get me all tickled pink again.

      2. Right now Lisa, it’s horrible. Our snow is now black or at least some version of it in shades of slate gray to dirty salt and pepper slush. This has been a mild winter thus far so my fingers are crossed that it continues. I do know it is highly unlikely it will stay this way, so the shovels are poised for action and the salt/sand bucket is near the door. If I see another moose, I’ll take photo just for you and email it. I was thinking about some of the food you eat at the fair every year and we have balls of maple fudge called ‘moose droppings’ lol Gotta love CanadaEH? 😉

  2. I’ve never seen a moose either. In Arkansas, these things cross the road: Possums, raccoons, squirrels, kitties, dogs, cows, foxes, drunks, chickens, skunks.

    But there was a girl we called “Moose” in college. Well, not I didn’t call her that. I though her manly physique was attractive.

    She wore the moniker like a crown, though.

    I love your photos, Val.

    1. I love you how you snuck in ‘drunks’ lol Bryan. I wonder whatever happened to your gal moose? I bet you were polite to her back then because she could kick your ass if you got lippy with her! 😉 I’m pleased you like my photos and just because you are such a fan, I’m posting more in about two minutes!

  3. Val,

    Wow! What a sight that is. All we got around here right now is rain and dogs. If a Moose ever showed up here it’d be the talk of the town for decades.

    1. LOL Dr. B. They are really wonderful critters. Hmmm, maybe we should import them to your area! 🙂 God knows we have too many here now.

    1. Mr. Squires, that moose was graceful but skittish and it pleases me that you liked it. They are damn common in Canada, but did you know they are not native to this island of Newfoundland? They were introduced a long time ago (a reference I use when I have not damn idea what year because I’m too lazy to google it) and ever since they have proliferated and killed many humans on the highway by jumping on their moving vehicles. In fact, they are trying to force the provincial government to erect fencing (a very expensive project for an this oil rich province) along the the highways in the most moose populated areas. 🙂 Moose steak is delicious!

      1. Here is the dope on how they got to Newfoundland Jessie. A bull and Cow moose were introduced to Newfoundland from Nova Scotia in 1878 and then again in 1904 two bulls and two cows were introduced from New Brunswick. There, my google skills are still humming along like a good engine.
