I got Moose in January, 1996 shortly before me & hellbob moved down here to the real world. My friend Becca, who was our roomate in Fargo, and I came down to the cities a couple weeks before we moved so that we could do laundry. We were so poor that it was cheaper to do it that way because Kathy let us put the gas on her gas credit card & we used their washer & drier. When we stopped in Alexandria for gas we each got a matching Moose because they were cute. We wanted to both get the same one since I was going to be moving away. A month later I was going to Vegas for scubagrrl's wedding & I had to go by myself because we couldn't afford for hellbob to go to, so I took Moose along as a good luck charm. Since I went for the weekend with $100 cash & my return ticket home and still had about $5 when I got home I decided that he worked as a good luck charm. Then a couple months later when hellbob & I went to a concert with Jeanine and while there I found Moose in my bag. Since he had snuck in with us we included him in some pictures I took. After that I took him with sometimes and took pictures of him and at some point it turned into Moose always coming with. His first big trip was Arizona and since then he's travelled with me to LA twice, Vegas again, Seattle & Washington state and Toronto.
Here he is in LA. He went to a taping of the Tonight Show with us:
He's also been photographed with several people, mostly at sci-fi conventions. Now he also travels with other people. genevra & akdar took him on a 2 week tour of Italy, Jeanine took him to Mexico, chebutykin has taken him to BNAT in Austin, TX, and to Puerto Rico and scubagrrl took him to Finland. In the near future I think I shall mail him to England to visit dakegra, K, and the Beans.
Here he is at the Grand Canyon:
He actually has his own photo album in my gallery at: http://www.dreamflyte.com/gallery/Moose
When I went to Toronto I had more people ask me when I got home if I got Moose's picture taken with James Marsters than if I had.
I got to have my pic taken with James and I asked him if he would hold Moose for the picture and he did.
