We have decided on the name for our place finally. We are now officially known as SMILING MOOSE POINT. The smiles come in because we don’t do any hunting here…I like to think of it as a sort of refuge for critters in hunting season! (I am not anti-hunting, folks…just not at our place.) And the point is because our cabin is situated in the side of a hill. You all know we get plenty of moose on our little 10 ac. piece of paradise, so that’s fitting. I really like the name better than [Dead] Grouse Point and we have tons of moose paraphernalia around the cabin. Daughter Jessica even made us a plaque around 10 years ago for outside the then non-existent door which is adorned with two moose! And, my sweet grandson, Leslie Andrew, gave me a little stool when he was 6 yrs. old, with a Christmas moose on it. (His mother said he picked it out himself at WalMart and insisted that he must buy it for Grammy.) I guess all the moose postcards I sent him paid off ;<). Anywho, welcome to Smiling Moose Point, now go home!! You've seen this guy before, but now he has his snowflakes on!
This picture hangs in our dining/kitchen area. My neighbor Denise is the photographer and she snapped our little moose cow while she was wandering in our woods at the cabin. (photo copyrighted and copied by permission only)
This is the stool Leslie Andrew got for Grammy for Christmas 2005. I just love him so much! Miss you Andy-boy.
The plaque also holds our door bell, which is portable, so I can unplug it at will. he he he.

And I the name of your homestead. We never did that. It's been 10 years, is it too late. ha.

Jen ~ Will keep my eyes peeled! Thx. No, I think you should name your place now. The tune of My Old Kentucky Home keeps playing in my mind.

Cassie, I love the name you have chosen. It seems very fitting. And I am having a good laugh over your moose decorated up with his snowflakes on! HA HA! I enjoyed this post, Cassie. This was fun seeing all the moose roaming about your place.

Great name Cassie!! Before I fell in love with the Loons on our lake - I had thought about the moose. (But they are only in the U.P. of MIchigan and Isle Royale - not in my part unfortunately.) When are you getting your official moose sign???

Daisy & Shelley ~ I have lots more moose stuff: dishes, dish towels, rugs, cutting board, thermometer...too much to photograph. Not sure where I'll even get a sign. I recall you had a place on line,Shelley,could you remind me of the name again??
