I miss the Mermaids of Norfolk/Virginia Beach. Here in Seattle, they have carousel horses instead and it just ain't the same.

By the way...

Norway: Northern rail line shut down after train hits moose
15-Aug-2006 04:05:34 PM (GMT) Norway's northern train line, Nordlandsbanen, is expected to be shut down until Wednesday afternoon or evening after a cargo train on the line struck a "monster moose."

Aftenposten reported Tuesday that the accident occurred between Dunderland and Mo i Rana. Passengers are being bused between those two locations until the line can be reopened.

The crash caused the train to derail.

"It must have been a monster moose," an official with the railway operating company said.



I wonder if there were any asses involved.

I lived in Tidewater from high school, through college and a twelve year relationship, followed by post-divorce weirdness and caring for my mother until she died, up until about three and a half years ago when I moved to Seattle.

That makes about twenty years or so in the Norfolk-Virginia Beach area.

So, since I lived half my life there, that makes it my hometown. I've come to accept that. V-A in the hi-zouse, two up two down, represent. Wink

Despite all the assurances from road signs that moose were around -- walking on dashed lines or prancing about (according to the drawings on the signs) -- during the whole time we were in New Hampshire and environs this past week on vacation, we didn't see one single real moose, until the morning that we left our 5-day stay at the state camping site at Lake Umbagog. (If you're curious, that name is supposed to be pronounced "um-BAY-gog," but I imagine a valley girl confusing it with "Oh, my GOD"...)

Anyway, we leave on that last day, and just less than a mile or so out of the camping facility our car comes upon a moose standing ahead of us in our driving lane. Fortunately we have enough time to stop at a distance of several yards, but the moose starts bolting off down the lane away from us, trips and falls, then picks itself up (as if saying "I meant to do that") and wisely skips off to the side into the woods.

Not much of a story, but at least we saw a moose!

Is it wrong that I wouldn't necessarily object to moose attire? I have a sloth on my shirt, adding a moose into the mix would be pretty awesome. Actually, let's just take it one step further and upgrade to a wooly mammoth. Now we're talkin'...

Yeah, but it's funnier than moose. Did I mention that I am the Author Guy and can therefore make-up words as I please because I am the Author Guy? Ha!


And let me add: Ha!

I was pretty sure that the pural of moose was meese. If not, than it should be. Mooses is funnier, but meeses tie into "Pixie, Dixie and Mr. Jinks" which is a cartoon and therefore moore suited to a larger audience...or not.

Your call, you are the authorguy. I just read it.
