The Moose Misfortune



The Pastor is supposed to be moose hunting this week. For those of you who don't know, Moose hunting is a once in a lifetime thing (at least in Idaho). He's tried to get his permit to hunt one for about 15 of our 19 married years and has never been chosen. But this year was different. This was his year. Monday was supposed to be his first day of hunting and Saturday night he started coming down with the flu.

Even though he and I have had some pretty heated "discussions" regarding if and where he could hang a ginormous moose head in our living room, I definitely didn't want him to miss his first big day of moose hunting. But he did. And he missed the second one too. The clock is ticking...he has 14 days to hunt his moose and right now he can barely get out of bed.
Please pray for The Pastor!! Pray for me, too. If he actually gets better and shoots one of these things, my living room decor has the potential to change dramatically!

Oh goodness ... what lame timing for him, after waiting all these years. On the flip side of that, I feel for you ... there is no good place in a home for a moose head!

Yeah, I know, but honestly, it's too important to him not to let him. Right now, I feel so bad for him, I'd agree to just about anything, but I'm hoping he doesn't see me put it in writing!!

"A ginormous moose is tasteful both in the kitchen, and on the wall"-Martha S.
I would suggest only the horns though. Their whole mug is not real easy on the eyes. He'll get one.

Tasteful in the kitchen???!!! I don't think so! I do agree with you that he'll get one, though.
