"I'll probably have a revolver," Taylor said. Then she stopped herself. She doesn't want to needlessly kill a wild animal. She'll have to think more on that.

She got lucky with the shovel. One would have thought they would have had a gun in the truck. She got lucky with the shovel. Husband v. moose is something to think about? Sounds to me like Mr. Taylor might have something to think about.

I tell you what, any woman who loves you enough to take on a moose to save your behind deserves a yacht or a mansion or a big diamond or something else expensive.

Moose Head Stew

Take one moose's head, skinned, and immerse in water with about four onions, carrots, celery, parsley, and any other vegetables you like. Cook until the meat begins to fall off, remove skull, add brown rice, a a little soy sauce or even a little A-1, complements the dark flavor. A dark dry burgundy would be good in the pot and by the plate.

If you put the carrots in and then cook the meat until it falls off the bone, the carrots would be a gushy mess

the carrots and vegetables go in only for the last 15 minutes

Keep a close eye on your sisters, apparently the moose have graduated from biting.

Ha! That's a "Bush" pilot not a "bush" pilot? Would it be an "Airline" pilot? A "Crop-Duster" pilot? I don't think so...

I see that's the way it was in the Anchorage Daily News.

Interestingly enough, that same technique often has to be used to keep Michael Moore in check at an all-you-can-eat buffet...

Graduated?

Au contraire! Stomping is not a step up.

It's a step down...
