    My son is home sick today and I was in his room waxing on too much about the benefits of the throat lozenge when suddenly a moose walked behind him.

    sunnufabitch!

    So we pinned our noses to the glass. She was about ten feet from the window. Just moseying along. And stopped at a bush to eat it. I grabbed the camera and realized the batteries were dead. New batteries. I went to my office window and took this pic:

    And then I went out on the front porch and took some more pictures. She didn't care about me. At 6'6" and 280 pounds I'm an insect to her. I made noises to get a better pic, but she could care less. Tasty bush.

    Eventually she turned and moseyed a bit more:

    As you travel the road of life, be sure to stop and taste the lilac bushes:

    How cool and exciting! I didn't know there were moose in Washington. I was just looking for info and found this great site about Moose in Washington. It says there are about 1000 Moose in NE Washington now. It also offers some very good safety information that you may want to review, considering how you were trying to get the Moose's attention for your photo. You may see it again, and it would be wise to know the dangers.

    Lucky rascal. All I get to see is Petey the Possum eating catfood each night next to the window on the front porch.
