So Minnesotan...

Having grown up in Northern Minnesota in what I fondly call the sticks this moose light switch plate is very Minnesotan. When I was young we had a deranged moose hanging around the outskirts of town...very cool to see a moose close-up. Unfortunatley he had to be put down. A few years back my brother, niece Kayla and I went up in a 4 passenger plane in northeastern Minnesota over the land between the shores of Lake Superior and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) and got to see 12 moose.

This moose light switch plate is in the Wisconsin log cabin of my friends David and Joellen...so appropriate.

Now switching subjects...get it...switching...

Congratulations on winning your award! :o)
Also, I just have to say, it would be so awesome to see a real live moose! I can't imagine how enormous it must be and then in your case to see 12! How fantastic!
