This morning on my walk I could not help but admire the rooftops that stand proudly against the blue sky. I enjoy looking at the houses on this stretch of road as they are each unique in their own way.
One homeowner has set their house apart from its neighbours as they have placed a moose on the roof. I remember being surprised the first time I saw this a number of years ago. Now it is merely a landmark that tells me I am near to the major intersection.
Why a moose – or the smaller caribou? you may ask. Maybe because it is an animal that typically represents Canada. I have always imagined these homeowners as being patriotic.
I enjoyed my early morning walk today – and tomorrow plan to walk another route. My nod at the caribou will happen some time next week when I walk this way again.
Would you place a moose on your roof?
