Hot Hot Hot and a Moose.

It is sooooo HOT HOT HOT here.  Even the swamp cooler can't keep the house cool. 
(some of you left comments about What is a Swamp Cooler so here is a Wikipedia def.)

All the kennels are cooler than My House.   Sheessss...
So Off to the Mountains for a bit.   Above is a picture of My Vickie's neice Becky after spending the day with us.  We get kind of dirty......

As most of you know, that kind of dirty is the funnest......
Close to the place we always stay is a lake that has all the cool wildlife.  For years My Vickie and I have tried to get a picture of these cute little blue birds. 

We are not patient enough to sit for long long periods of time, so we had to use one of Johns pictures to show you what they look like. 
The moose have already reached 1/3 of their antler growth and it is fun to watch them.  Someone told My Vickie that they grow about an inch a day.  Does anyone know if that is true?   Anyway....really really cool to watch.

We didn't see the new borns this year because there was still so much snow, but we are back in the swing of things now.

If you wanna take the time, here is a short short video of one of my friends that John video'd for us.  WE missed it this time but My Vickie says next week we get to go camping again.


Hope you all have a great 4th of July weekend. And I hope it is cooler where you are cause it is MISERABLE here.

I hope that it cools down for you soon. ... What is a swamp cooler?

That is a pretty blue bird. We've never seen one like him before. I think the moose are pretty cool too. My nana calls me Moose - I'm not sure why though.

Happy 4th of July weekend, Bert!

Did you get to sniff noses with that Moose?

Frankie Furter said...

Hey Bert... my dad says that Horns grow really SLOW... butt those Antlers.. can sometimes grow an inch a day... it there is plenty of good foods in the area and the animal is in prime condition.

I know what a Swamp Cooler is... butt I'm betting lots of folks would like to see and learn about them... I'm just sayin, buddy.

Wow, a real live Moose!!! That's so cool. I think Frankie is referring to me because I don't know what a swamp cooler is ...

Your pal, Pip

Oh yes, it is just so hot and humid here too - we spend most of our time inside. A trip to a lake or the mountains sounds like a real treat.

Happy Fourth to you and your family.

Aha, a moose on the loose. Right then, now that Canada Day is over, eh, let me take this opportunity to wish y'all in America, a peaceful and positive July 4th.
See ya later, eh, :)

Maggie and Mitch said...

We think mooses are really cool. It's probably because we've never seen a real one in person before!
We hope the temps cool down for you, Bert!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Hi Y'all,

You bet we're havin' a great 4th! Hope y'all are too!

Love the mountain blue bird.

We're still at the shore. It's cool here today, only got to the low 90's here today. It's already down to 88 at 6PM.

Hope the boat gets back soon so we can go to the mountains.

Drought is killing us and the rivers are dropping. Hope y'all aren't in drought.

Y'all come by now,
Hawk aka BrownDog

Hi Bert, thanks for visiting me. I wish we had some hot weather. Here it is very cold and mum keeps making me go outside all the time for a wee. Brrrrr. Those moose are so cool. No worries, and love, Stella
