An “Alaska Stud Muffin” coffee mug. Back in the day I bought fine coffee mugs like these for friends and family.
I like these White Doe Prints, which I just found on Amazon back in 2016. Unfortunately Amazon won’t let me add the prints to my wish list, so I’m linking to them from here.
A moose statue inside Krazy Moose Subs, Wasilla, Alaska. Seems fitting to go along with my moose in Rocky Mountain National Park image earlier today.
Unfortunately this image (and accompanying video) are blurry — I didn’t want to get too close to them — but here are two moose in Rocky Mountain National Park, July 31, 2019.
I don’t remember the origin of this photo, but here are two moose fighting in Palmer, Alaska.
I lived in Palmer when I first started going through the thyroid issues, and because of those issues I’d go for walks at any time during the day, 24 hours a day. One late night or early morning I went for a walk and came across a moose, but fortunately I saw it early and it was a non issue. He or she went on their way, and I went the other way.
Right after I left Colorado ~3 weeks ago, I received a message that a package had arrived for me. I wasn’t expecting anything, so all I could think was that maybe the Nuts On Clark people had sent me a gift to apologize for a recent messed-up order.
I got back in Colorado last night, and when I walked to the front office today I found this “The Moose Is Back” t-shirt, which is an even better surprise than the free popcorn might have been. :)
Here are two moose that I came across one day in Alaska.

Three moose running across my neighbors yard, Wasilla, Alaska, November 12, 2010. I still remember being surprised at how much noise they made, it was like a rolling thunder sound and the little apartment I was in was shaking pretty good.
I wake up at 3:40am, hearing something dripping. I follow the sound around the new apartment until I find that it’s coming from the refrigerator. Looking around, I don’t see any water on the floor, inside the refrigerator compartment, or in the freezer. My guess is that this is what it sounds like when it defrosts. I have a sip of water and go back to bed.
I wake up some time later. It’s bright, so I don’t want to open my eyes. I’m enjoying a comfortable rest, and the pillow and sheets smell fresh and clean.
Why is it so bright? I haven’t been here long, but I know that the Sun rises on the other side of the building, and my bedroom only get indirect light in the morning.
Without moving my body, I open my eyes and look around. I see enough to know that I’m in a hospital.
