Pat said...

How awesome. There is nothing to see out my window in the city except a squirel...but up north at the cottage, the view never ends, but we've never seen anything like this! I envy you.

Wow! How gorgeous! BTW we received your lovely 2010 card. Thank you! Your Mangy Moose Lodge is a beautiful place full of love!

Isn't the moose a mighty sight.
He moves with the haste of the wind over fences and hills.
Never thought that giant could behave so elegantly.
It sure must be a he, a young he, according to his horns.
Wonderful pictures.
Wonderful scenery.
Wonderful homestead.

I'm sure it is bigger than the pictures show, so I wouldn't venture out too far either! Still, it has to be a bit of a thrill to see something like that so close. Every now and then we see some deer in the field behind our house but that's it. Most days it is just squirrels and birds.

We see only squirrels, sparrows, and the occasional cardinal around here, but when we lived in Montana we saw mule deer, antelope, and lots and lots of cattle. What a gorgeous animal the moose is!

Oh Golly, M&M! Be careful, those guys can charge a person!

Reminds me of the little boy skating in the Cathedral of St Andre, in Bordeaux, France. I took a picture of him before Mrs. Jim made him stop. He didn't pay much attention to Mrs. Jim but he wanted to charge me for his picture.

See what the good Lord sends when you have no words (perhaps you should not wait for just the 'brilliant' ones).

in my beloved manitoba, these poor creatures were hunted. i always refused to eat them. dad golden used to go with the guys but he could never kill a one!
