Moose on the Loose: The World Travels of Herbert J. Moose

Meet Herbert J. Moose. Originally hailing from Moosylvania, now living here in Indiana. He's about 3" tall. He has a very famous uncle, but he doesn't like to brag about it.

Herbert has been traveling around the U.K. for the last month and a half, on the first leg of his It's a Small World Tour. He's visiting the homes of a number of miniaturist friends and having a grand time seeing the sights (pictured left in Kent, England.)

Herbert's trip is being chronicled in photographs and entries in the journal he took along, as well as on his own Facebook page (feel free to friend him if you want to keep up with his journey in real time.)

He arrived in Derbyshire, England on March 16th and spent a week visiting with Donna and her family. From there he went to see Julia in Kent, England, and then Tina in North Essex. He then travelled back to North America and caught up with Judy just in time to tag along on her trip to the Isle of Man and London. They got to spend a few extra days in London when flights home were cancelled due to volcanic ash (Herbert was disappointed he didn't get to see the volcano.) He just arrived back in Canada this week, where he is visiting with Lea and Arden and getting a welcome bit of rest after his whirlwind tour of the U.K. Lots of beautiful photos, be sure and check them out!

Cute idea - I had once a visit of a travelling rat called Rudi Ratz made by a blogger friend. That was fun, too!



About Me

My Photo
Griffins, traditionally, are Guardians. Often carved at temple doors in ancient times, they were said to guard the way to Wisdom. I, on the other hand, seem to be the Guardian primarily of odd bits of string, pinecones, scraps of paper, mismatched socks, old calendars, homeless imps and gnomes, pencils with no erasers, jokes nobody gets, forgotten gods, keys with no locks, and other people’s lighters. If any of these things might be of use to you, let me know.
