It's because you guys are so cheap. They are all down here on the river vacationing. I was paddling by a secluded beach the other day and there they all were, laying around getting some sun. So, I said, hey, what are all you guys doing down here? They said they were on strike and that Alaskan's are too cheap to pay them any more than minimum wages to stand out there and pose for the tourists. They said at those low wages, it just wasn't worth it to stand out there in the cold all winter, when they could come down here for very little and bake in the sun and not have all those crazies with the camera's sneaking around them. So, if you want the moose back, you better do something, or I fear we are stuck with them. :O) Bob Noble www.sonic.net/bnoble ----- Original Message ----- From: "trapper" <trapper@xxxxxxx> | Not a moose in sight...Not all winter have we seen our moose..Usually they | are everywhere..on the roads and in our yards...Been a very mild winter and | little snow...Now enough snow to chase them out of the mountains.. | The first time ever that I can recall That our sled dog race had to be moved | and all but cancelled because of no snow.. | To unsubscribe from this list send an email to pcductape-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Web interface.
