“Well, then my old dad said in his gruff voice, No boy of mine is going to Healy U. when the rest of us went to…
“You know”, said Lola slowly. “I’d prefer if you’d start telling stories about the Moose again, just to stop making me crazy, wanting to pull out my 30-30 Winchester and..”
“All right Dude” said Tristan to Morris. “High 5 Points! and with that said they butted Antlers, with Tristan saying, “I knew that sooner or later Lola would come back to her senses, and welcome us back!” Yeah” said Barney. “Her friend can drive any well-adjusted Moose crazy with those stories!”
“Hey Man. You seem troubled about something” said Tristan with a concerned look on his face. “What’s up?”
Barney answered slowly, “Shelia is due in tomorrow on Cloud 9, at 9am from Australia!”
“Wow Dude. What a Bummer! Two Nines can’t be a coincidence, especially if you are a Vision Moose! Hey, why don’t we go Moosing together tonight, before she comes tomorrow? We always used to get lucky in the Vision Forest outside of Homer, and….what are you laughing about?”
Barney just looked at him and said, “When you said Homer, I was expecting you to say….With the two Moose saying in unison, “Homer Alaska!” and laughing until they thought the trees would break.
“Yeah” said Tristan. “He really knows how to get her Moose, doesn’t he?”
Lola just looked at him and said, “I know I’ll regret asking you this, but didn’t your parents ever do things like the rest of us normal Alaskans grew up with?” Then covering her head as if the sky was going to fall!
“Well, of course we did.” Said as if to show his indigence at her ignorance. “Why when I was young, Mom said, “Now now my young fellow. If you put that broken twig under your pillow tonight, a fresh new one will be there tomorrow morning after…”
“You mean a tooth of course?” asked Lola, as if I didn’t know a twig from a tooth.
“No. A twig. When the Vision Twig Fairy came to call, I was ready with my little eyes closed, but clutching my Moose Light in the hope of catching him/her red-fetlocked in the act! There I was that one fateful night when…”
“You are talking as if you are a Moose, or something? and…”
“Whoa Dude! That Lola wasn’t born yesterday, was she?” said Tristan, while Barney just nodded and wondered if the old body was up to a night in the Forest with the ladies?
“Gosh Lola, when you shake your Antlers like that it was almost like the first time we met one another in that Forest near Homer…..Alaska. You rubbed your…”
“We are not Moose! Got that?” said as she wondered how the latest nail color, Moose Denali Blue would look on her fetlocks, making her just sigh, when she thought about how he would make her Antlers shake, almost like the time that…”
“Here’s to a night on the Town!” said the Two Vision Moose toasting each other with a cold Moose Juice, as they saw how Lola and her Mate were getting on.
“Yep” said Barney. “She is one of a kind Moose Gal, isn’t she?”….
