Out Of Hiding

The moose are out of hiding now. We have been watching four moose across the lake in our neighbors yard. Our neighbor has a lot of land. He did cat work and made an airstrip which he then hauled topsoil in and grew a beautiful lawn. The moose come to nibble on his grass.

There was a cow with a calf and a bull and possibly another bull. It was not a big moose but the cow was busy trying to chase it off. I think it must have been her older calf. The vanquished moose just stays out of the way but has not left yet.

Here's some video of those moose, but the one hiding in the trees didn't get into the video. Isn't that sort of sad? Chasing away your offspring? Awwwwww, that is so sad, but necessary in the wilds, I guess. :-(

My Buddy

Life is a book that we study,
Some of its leaves bring a sigh.
There it was written, my buddy,
That we must part, you and I.

Nights are long since you went away,
I think about you all through the day,
My buddy, my buddy, no buddy quite so true.
Miss your voice, the touch of your hand,
Just long to know that you understand,
My buddy, my buddy, your buddy misses you.

Buddies through all the gay days,
Buddies when something went wrong;
I wait alone through the gray days,
Miss your smile and your song.

Nights are long since you went away,
I think about you all through the day,
My buddy, my buddy, no buddy quite so true.
Miss your voice, the touch of your hand,
Just long to know that you understand,
My buddy, my buddy, your buddy misses you.

thanks for sharing the poem, Connie. made me think of my dear buddy Millie. I miss her a lot. We used to call each other and pretty much laugh for an hour or so together.

Thanks Connie, I am having a very nice weekend so far. Sunny and everyone is home!

Jo, it made me think of Millie and my daughter Marie. Praying that soon Millie will be able to respond to us. Her "buddies" want to believe that she knows that we are with her. When I visit with her I share prayer requests and ask that she would pray while she is stuck in the bed.

You must have your camera at the ready all the time. Thanks for this short film of your meeces? mooses? moosie? You're surrounded with so such amazing nature. :`)

The poem is sad...

I love your new "blogskin!" I see you've had some creative fun. Hugs!

Hi e-Mom,
My camera is almost a permanent appendage anymore! I always wonder if I should bring my camera whenever I go out the door! Every time I didn't - I should have!
