This little guy and his momma showed up today during one of the heavier rain showers.
They wandered around, ate some of Pammy’s berries and stripped some branches off the trees. The young one then took exception to our pulsing sprinkler.
I don’t know why. The sprinkler was not running but something about that yellow and black hardware in the middle of the lawn really pissed it off.
It sniffed and pawed and finally stomped the sprinkler. It would walk away with a bit of a strut in its step as if to say, “Well, I certainly showed you.”
Then Pammy turned the water on. That really upset both the moose and it’s momma. Note the hackle standing up on the back of the neck. If you ever see a moose with its hair up like that, just walk away. Now ! It would charge the sprinkler until it was hit with the stream then it would back off. It did this over and over.
Finally, they moved off into the woods. Pammy gave it about five minutes then moved to turn off the hose.
Momma came charging out of the woods snorting and grunting. Pammy was in no danger as she was behind the fence. The moose made several threatening moves toward the now running sprinkler but didn’t like to get sprayed in the snoot or the boot.
At one time I had this nifty little WordPress plugin “Add Link to FaceBook” that worked like a champ.
If I made a new post on this blog, the plug-in would automagically interface with FaceBook and share a link on my business page. “http://www.facebook.com/fortymilephoto”
Then FaceBook decided that was a bad thing to have. They first made changes to the API so you had to stay on your toes keeping up to date.
Then it just quit working, the plug-in developers decided it was way too much work for their free efforts.
So it died.
Seems Facebook wants you to compose your offsite content to their “standards” before you publish a link. It would be nice if Facebook would vet the links to be sure there are no nasties associated with the link. People will click on anything.
When you pull up and stop to view the Northern Lights, please do not do as this person.
There is absolutely no reason for this. Once you have put the vehicle in park, shutdown your lights. If you can not run the engine / heater in your car without the lights being on, please go somewhere else and don’t spoil the dark skies for others. The driver in the above vehicle sat for two hours without moving. Motor running, lights on, nobody home.
And for those of you who just don’t “get it”. No one is saying you should turn out your lights while moving. Only a fool would think that.
