I'm a city boy.
When I see a moose, I think of Bullwinkle.
A bear - Yogi and Smokey.

Fortunately, I have visited the forests and seen the real thing.

No anthropomorphizing for me! I'm no longer 5.

Thanks!

gfa, what's the point of being a grown-up if you can't be immature once in awhile? :)

Thanks, PH!

We have black bears here in Appalachia, but those guys look like a whole new level of trouble. Here, the state come and traps trouble bears in a big cage, and hauls them off into the Tennessee mountains where they won't bother people. Somehow I don't see that working with those guys.

Rev. Paul said...

Welcome, Harry! The brown bears here in town average between 650 and 800 pounds, and larger on the mountainside above town. They resist relocation, and the Fish & Game attitude is "they were here first, leave 'em alone unless they attack someone."

Ahhhhh......SNOW! Thank you!

Rev. Paul said...

Chickenmom, um, you're welcome? You know, of course, that those pictures are from previous winters? I promise you that we don't have snow on the ground in July. Heh. :)

Chickenmom said...

Yeah, I know :0) .... just wishful thinking. It's just so darn HOT here! The thermometer say 102 and that's in the shade! I can't imagine what it is like in the city!

Ewww. In the words of Doctor Who: "I'm sorry. I'm so, SO sorry."

:)

Rev. Paul said...

Sorry, Max. Never promised wordless comments, only the post. :)

Good ones, and not a pet in the lot... :-)

Chickenmom said...

Mooses!!!

Rev. Paul said...

NFO, you're right - none of these would make good pets. I don't care what the Lower 48 folks think. :)

Chickenmom - and bearses, too!

There's only two reasons I'd feel uncomfortable in Alaska....

1) Winters that make Chicago winters look like Palm Springs

2) The possibility I could step outside for something and come face to face with a bear.

A BIG bear!

Other than that, I'd probably enjoy living there.....

Rev. Paul said...

Jim, I've lived in Anchorage for 12 years, and haven't had any face-to-face encounters. Not yet, anyway. We've seen a couple, but from a comfortable distance. And the wind chill in Chicago is WAY worse than the actual temps here. We don't get that much wind.

There, I feel better. :)
