Open Thread – Surveying the Kingdom
This time of year when it’s light in the morning, I love to take my first sip of coffee looking out the window at the weather and the view, and just enjoying it for a moment before the business of the day begins. I was doing just that the other morning, and suddenly I noticed… I wasn’t alone. Someone was, literally, ahead of me. Brian the moose after apparently dozing on the lawn near one of the last patches of snow, took a few moments upon waking to enjoy the same view and lazily survey his kingdom in the morning light. He stayed there quite contentedly well into my second cup of coffee. We animals are not that different.
