Oh yes indeed. Love the moose...

Rev. Paul said...

Thanks, Stephen. That's the one which gave rise to my URL "mooseintheyard". First one we saw after moving here. :^)

I'm hoping you'll soon post the photo of the moose with his full rack displayed.

And the quote is the absolute truth.

Rev. Paul said...

Matt, I'll dig out a good bull just for you, for the next header.

Guffaw, not at all. As an ordained minister, I don't find an "amen" out of place at all. It lets me know I'm reaching somebody in the 'congregation'. :^)

PH, you weren't supposed to notice. Get back in line! Heh.
