It's been a leisurely fall and I've been doing my best to stay out of any gun sights. One ventilation hole is enough for a lifetime. I'm afraid the next one that catches me in the crosshairs might be an elephant gun and I'd be a goner for sure. I've kept my moose version of a walk about confined to the USA. Lots of crazy stuff going on in the world and besides, I really had to stick around to see if my old gun banning buddy, Barack, kept his crown for another few years. If he has anything to do with it, I won't have to worry about getting shot anymore. Heck, I can raid and pillage to my hearts content with no fear. Anyhoo, moose are basically solitary individuals so the walk about suits my temperment quite well. Every now and again I feel the urge to seek out a pretty little moosette but good old VisuTrac's constant referral to my "tick infested hide" has seriously damaged my self esteem. I'm just not feeling that same confidence in my manhood that I've always carried and have avoided the pleasure of female company until I can get a good scrub down and rid myself of these little vermin. While doing some birdwatching, I've also been keeping my eyes out for my fellow monkeys though nary a one has made their way into my camp. I keep a nice warm fire every night so company would be welcomed and the coffee's always hot and a flask of Jack Daniels is never too far out of reach.. Took this photo with my iPhone in a particularly beautiful forest. Now doesn't this entice any of you to hit the road and join me.
