Bed Time in Alaska Open Thread – Brenda?!

14 10 2008

Apparently the irresistable siren song of the swing set has lured Brian the moose back to the yard. And as we have established that Brian is really more of a grand idea, than any one particular moose, you will notice that this one is sans antlers, and therefore a female. Brenda?

After the original Brian got the swingset tangled in his antlers and dragged it into the woods, we retrieved it, and set it back in place. Now, it seems obvious that the appeal, whatever it is, crosses the gender gap. Brenda rubbed her head all over the bars and played with the swings for a little while – long enough for me to snap this picture.

Never a dull moment in Alaska.


More sidebar toys!  If you look on the sidebar, you’ll notice a few additions. 

  • There is a very cool electoral college widget that has the current state of the electoral college race. 
  • There’s also a link to the Mudflats Amazon Store!  I’ve double checked the WordPress rules, and I’m permitted to have “one discreet link” to an Amazon store, so there it is.  In it you’ll find “Mudflats Recommended” books, and DVDs, and lots of fun election and Alaskan stuff.  Hope you enjoy it!
  • I’ve also moved the Blogger’s Choice Award widget to the top of the sidebar.  Voting ends on October 16, and Mudflats is now in the top 3!  I’m amazed!  Thanks to all who have voted.
  • And finally, there is a Mudflats Twitter feed on the blog.  For those of you who don’t know what Twitter is, it will let me post little messages of 140 characters or less from a cell phone or computer to get information out quickly.  I’ve been meaning to get it up there for a while now.  For those of you who are on Twitter, you can follow me.  The name is Mudflats!

Chatter on Mudpuppies. See you in the morning.
