A Moose Called Jim February 25, 2017

Posted by nrhatch in Animals, Humor.

One of our favorite shops in Bar Harbor Maine is Cool As A Moose.

There is something so pleasantly comical about a moose.

Or meeses.

I love meeses to pieces.

Especially ones named Jim!

Aah . . . that’s better!

LOL! I love the comic, Nancy! Have a great weekend!

My brother’s name is Jim . . . and he’s Cool as a Moose!

Great comic! I want to take my husband to Maine sometime. He has never been there. I was there as a teen-ager and loved it. My parents lived in Portland, Maine before having children.

If you take him to Maine ~ Kennebunkport is a great place to start, especially at the Clam Hut on the bridge. Driving north, a stop in Wicasset at Red’s Eats for a Lobster Roll is a plus.

Bar Harbor is a great spot to stay for touring Acadia National Park.

I remember Bullwinkle J. Moose; best friend of Rocky the Flying Squirrel. Along with their antagonists, Boris, Natasha, and Mr. Big. Those three were constantly being defeated by the Moose and Squirrel, who never had the slightest idea that they’d done so.

Yes! I loved Bullwinkle J. Moose. Saturday morning and after-school cartoons were the best!

I agree – moose are cool … probably because they do look rather comical 🙂

nrhatch - February 25, 2017

Exactly! They look cuddly, cute, comical and cool!

Oh, poor Jim. 😦 Our son’s sister-in-law has lots of Jims in her house in Tahoe. It quite put me off my dinner.

I’m not much for Dead Heads hanging over my head at dinner either, Sylvia.

My brother had a stuffed plush moose head that was great.

Yes, that’s when ‘fake’ is better. 🙂

My niece has a few Bambi’s hanging in her house. Unnerving for an animal lover plus I always feel that they are looking at me.

I’m not a fan of the “real deal” hanging around. But hunting can serve a purpose ~ thinning the herd can keep them all from starvation.

Behind the Story - February 25, 2017

My heart is against hunting, but my head agrees that it serves a purpose. I also feel a little uneasy about reintroducing wolves. (I’ve read too many folk tales.) But this video convinced me that it can be a good thing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysa5OBhXz-Q

Awesome video. I’ve seen it before and am convinced that increased biodiversity is a good thing for us, for the animals, and for the sustainability of this precious planet.

On no poor Jim! Haaaa – cool meeses Nancy 😀

nrhatch - February 25, 2017

I love the expression on Jim’s face ~ Zen Bliss!

8. L. Marie - February 25, 2017

I also remember Bullwinkle. I have a stuffed moose on my bookshelf. 😀

nrhatch - February 25, 2017

Cool! Any moose that fits on a bookcase can’t have been stuffed by a taxidermist. 😀

9. Ally Bean - February 27, 2017

Cute cartoon. As a child there was nothing quite as wonderful as when Mr. Moose got all those ping pong balls to fall on the Captain’s head. To this day my inner 4 y.o. still giggles a bit over that bit.

nrhatch - February 27, 2017

Mr. Moose is good for a giggle!

Ally Bean - February 27, 2017

Nice one! I’m giggling, I confess.

nrhatch - February 27, 2017

Now . . . go out and buy one of those snazzy red jackets with contrasting piping on the pockets and lapel!

Such fun! I loved Mr. Moose on Captain Kangaroo and Bullwinkle will always be a favorite!

We watched a documentary last night (Seasons) that included spectacular nature and animal footage . . . including moose! Just stunning! The film is by the same folks who shot Winged Migration.
