Well, we all know that I have a tendency to collect moose – right? From the beginning of our trip to Homer where a real live 1000+ pounder caused some damage to the car – to the Goofy Moose we found as we left Homer. What? I didn’t tell you about the Goofy Moose?
aha – perfect finale to our anniversary trip tale, I’m thinking.
When we stopped for breakfast – at the Caribou (thanks, Gal) – we spotted several goofy caricatures carved from wood placed around the restaurant. I grabbed one of the business cards as it had a website address on it and I figured – well, you know what I figured – I would contact the “Bear Man” at a later date to see about getting one of the said Goofy Moose.
I didn’t have to wait long – as we left the Spit area after our boat jaunt I spotted the critters sitting alongside the road. Made a u-ie and went back to take a closer look – oh, so cute! Oh, so necessary for my collection! Oh, the things he let us see that I didn’t get a picture of – because they are only for “special” minded folks. Yes, I know that many of you out there have the mindset to stand for it – but, well, I just blushed and carried on – no pics.
Anyway . . . I did take a shot of the “moose-squito” for you all.
and here is your faithful PurpleMoose grinning just like the Goofy Moose.
Darn! I thought I had taken a shot of my little guy – but I don’t find it here. And, he is in my office at work, so can’t get a shot for you today. Maybe later this week. And, I am only going to post these smaller photos because I understand that people have tried to take shots of the sculptures in order to make their own – I don’t want to be a cause of such a thing. Go on over and visit his site and get your own.
as per usual – I am living up to my motto – I live in Alaska – I make my own fun. Woot!
