montreal: Woodpecker Wednesday??? Seeing Red in Montreal, Quebec - 08/10/11 02:46 PM
Bon mercredi de Montréal, Québec!  Happy Wednesday from Montreal, Quebec!
Last Wednesday, I was astonished to see the following scene in Montreal and in the backyard!
 
For those that regularly visited my blog during my days in Montana, I have created a group called Moose Monday on ActiveRain where photos of moose were featured and shared on Mondays.  I have actually made a few Moose Monday posts from Montreal.  Now, with the latest sighting, how about a group called Woodpecker Wednesday?  Just kidding, Wordless Wednesday is sufficient enough! But it does sound fun and it would be interesting to see and know where else in … (29 comments)

Moose Monday - Maple Leaf Moose
This is my lone post for the month of November 2010.
The only thing constant in life is change.
And this moose is an indication of change.  

Happy Moose Monday from Canada!

montreal: Extra, Extra! You Moose Read About It! - 02/09/10 01:28 PM
I had this great moose photo that I received via email from a friend of mine which I thought would be great for Moose Monday.  I waited patiently to Monday to post it at Moose Monday but my Canadian Buds (Al and Peggy Cunningham) also got their hands on the same photo and posted to the group before I had the chance.   Imagine my big surprise when I was having my Monday morning coffee and the first post which I visited after logging on to ActiveRain was Al and Peggy's Moose Monday (Moose Monday - How Much Do You Love Your Moose?) post!  I don't know … (30 comments)

montreal: Moose Monday - Montreal Moose - L'orignal de Montréal - 01/25/10 11:03 AM
I looked long and hard to find moose during my visit to Montreal, Canada.
Then, as I was riding on a bus in downtown Montreal, one finally caught my eye.  I got out of the bus in a hurry just to photograph this one!
Here he is with allhis Montreal charm.  I present to you "L'orignal de Montréal" (funny enough the word "moose" in French rhymes with Montreal).
 
Isn't he adorable?  Eh!
Now, check out the surroundings where this photo was taken and what was hiding on the top of the roof on the same building where this moose was!

Happy Moose Monday from Montreal!   … (36 comments)

English version follows (below the flag):
Je veux juste prendre le moment de souhaiter bonne fête de la Saint Jean à tous les Québécois.
Ayant grandi et ayant vécu la plupart de ma vie à Montréal, je tiens le Québec chaud au coeur.  Je me souviens et me souviendrai toujours de cette jolie province appelé Québec.
