Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Wishing my herd, my library family and all of my internet friends and supporters a very

Happy Thanksgiving!

I will be spending the day with my herd mates cooking up a special meal, and yes, we will clean up the library kitchen and put everything back where we found it.

Wishing you all a day filled with family and friends, some good food and perhaps some football will round the day out nicely.

Thanksgiving Day portrait.


Hi everyone, shown is my official library portrait of my Thanksgiving day habitat. All of my herd are very thankful to live in such a wonderful environment and to have such a great group of humans to care for us and for us to provide for. My owner asked if I'd be kind enough to send our Thanksgiving best to his Mom. She is back home and he said he was very thankful about that. So from me and all of my herd, a happy Thanksgiving to my owners Mom...oh heck, besides that we wish everyone who follows this blog a very happy Thanksgiving!

What to read, what ever should I read?

Here I am checking out the books in the library...what ever should a suave, sophisticated, urbane, witty, and darned good looking Moose-about-town...err, Moose-about-the-library read. As you can tell, I think I'll revisit one of my all-time favorite books!

Here is a fancy, real-time photo shot of me, the Library Moose, posting this very blog post. I just knew that those Library security cameras could be rerouted for my purposes. Libraries are wonderful places, the technology that they offer the public for email and the such is just amazing...and yes, the books, CDs, magazines, etc. are pretty cool too!

Amoosement for the day.

In case that anyone doubted my ability to do my own blog by myself, I post this picture showing me hard at work. Yes that is one of the library's public internet PCs. I am limited to using the PCs prior to the library's opening and of course after closing which is what I am doing right now. With documented proof, I hope no one will continue to believe that my owner is behind all of this.

Speaking of the owner, he has begun the process of changing over to my next habitat...I am oh so thankful [a not so subtle hint to what the habitat will be] the flickering skeleton lights were getting a tad annoying and the cape was beginning to chafe.

Scene of the crime....CSI Library!


To the left is a mysterious and highly suspicious note [click on it for closeup details] found in my habitat upon rescue and return. No ransom was demanded but I think that the mooseknappers didn't realize that mooseknapping such a famoose moose as I would bring the hot bright light of inquiry to close to their criminal activities! That and the fact that without me, an awful lot of library staff would be unable to obtain their needed chocolate and without chocolate, well let me just say this, if you think the screenwriters strike will be ugly and messy, you haven't seen librarians cut off from chocolate, it isn't a pretty sight, downright dangerous too!


I was unceremoniously discarded into the barren wasteland in the storage area, abandoned, lonely, I waited to be found, trying to maintain a brave front as I stared my fate in the wild, alone and nearly without hope....felt much like an unwanted, discarded book!


You may ask, do you, oh Library Moose have any ideas as to who was the nefarious and dastardly mastermind(s) behind this abortive mooseknapping and yes I do suspect someone. However upon forsenic crime scene investigation, not a fingerprint, hoofprint or animal fiber was left behind, not a clue, so even with suspicions, that is all they will remain but I hope to state my case at a later date and let you, my loyal audience decide the merits of my case.


Free at last, free at last!


I want to get in an update this evening to let all of my fans know that I am free from my mooseknapper(s) and back in my rightful place in Technical Services leading my herd. The above photo shows me earlier on Wednesday, having my fill of wonderful food at the staff Halloween potluck. My recollections of events once I ate are fuzzy at best, unfortunately I can only conclude that my mooseknapping was an "inside" job and that my food was mixed with a knockout drug of some sort.

What happened and where am I?


Uh, that must have been one amazing Library potluck party yesterday, for I, your humble Library Moose, find myself somewhere, lost far away from my normal habitat. Too bad I didn't leave a trail of "moose munch" to follow back home, but then again, we all know how well that worked in the fairy tale don't we? Where ever I am I did find a computer that I could put out this plea for rescue......
