Jeff, don’t let Dwight fool you. I once saw him take down an adult Moosetrout with his bare hands. I rest easy when he’s on watch.

Those moosetrout can be a handful, if provoked. ::)

Grab 'em by the horns Jeff, just watch out for the tail. I hear they can be tall.

Moose trout are only dangerous if you're in the water with them and can't get out....

...they don't keep after you on land like a DUCK will!  ;) :-* :-*

Perhaps someone with artistic talent could produce a novelty postcard like the following, with a moose trout atop a WW&F flatcar and Dave standing on top:

What–me worry?

I wouldn't lampoon the moose-trout idea.  If we can get our most notable "Moose-calleur" to spin a new story of the lonely Sheepscot Moose-Trout, then we can create a children's book and the stuffed animal to go with it.  Hey, it's how they market toys and games these days - why not - it worked for Thomas.

I am sure our notable "Moose-calleur" extraordinaire could come up with a great children't book story, that would also enthrall the troops at the end of a long and productive work weekend.

It would give us all something to look forward to after this Covid mess is over.
