Just in case you don’t quite see that Alaska is the last frontier, I should mention that a couple miles into the city (of 300,000, half the population of the state), in other words twenty minutes after I landed, I saw a moose nibbling on a tree in someone’s back yard as we drove by. Then, this morning a front page article appeared in the Anchorage paper: "Falling moose nearly takes out trooper: Animal plunges to its death of Seward Highway cliff." Now, although there is more to the frontier cover of the state than this, these two moose stories will be great to hang it on later.
Falling or jumping? Studies have shown prolonged wintry weather can dampen anyone's spirits.......
A morbidly morose moose?
Catch a falling moose and put it in your pocket...
That last was funny. Sing the song through and it is either post-modernistically poetic or Edward Lear without his usual structure. Maybe no one else is reading the comments here, but I laughed out loud. Thank you.
Seward worked for Lincoln, who was a left-wing tyrant who had the nerve to interfere with our God-given right to own slaves!
Moose to Alaska to Seward to Lincoln (as tyrant) to slavery as God-given right? Did I follow that correctly?
