Me Love Of Meeses And A Postie That Must Think Im Crazy.....

Ok...... so most know of me love of Moose, or Meeses as Sharkie corrected me when I told him about me mooses find....

I still dont know where this passion of mine comes from, but Im always typing in Moose on Ebay and having a flit around...

Look what I bought a couple of weeks ago.... how mega chufted was I LMFAO..... what a bleedin saddo I am that something so daft makes me smile from ear to ear LOL.... And the wonderful thing is it only cost me 99p plus a couple of quid for postage.... 99p (50cents I think) for something that when it was bought new by the previous owners (and its in as new condition) must of cost a fair packet cos the label says *Knight and Lee* and thats a wellabit posh shop lol....



Dont look so puzzled lmfao..... its a Moose Rug thingie, of course its not a real dead moose its fake BUT AINT IT JUST THE BESTEST thing ever ..... its about 5 foot long and it has this big proper head and I just LOVE it ...... jebus, you should of seen the look on me lads faces when I showed them what had come in the post....It was that look of 'mums lost the plot' lol..... at the moment its in this middle room with all the childminding toys etc and the nippers LOVE him, they roll on him and wrap him around their shoulders and pretend to be a moose...... I think when I sort me bedroom out I might put him on the floor next to me bed and then I can pretend I live in a log cabin in the woods LMFAO.....

See how easily pleased I am..... just tiny little things makes me smile, Im very low maintenance lol and this moose rug has made me BEAM lol..... I also bought off ebay an antique moose jug in perfect condition and it came all the way from America..... well most know me love of jugs and I just fell in love with the moose jug.... I will take a photo when I get batteries for me camera.....

Anyways, back to me story..... a few months ago over at...

FamilyPhilsBlob

he had a photo of some of the junk on his desk and said he was having a clear out..... so I commented that if that was really the case then I would LOVE the little moose figure that I had spied amongst his stuff..... and guess what, all these months later? ... can you see the smile on me face......look what turned up in the post...



Oh my goodness, it was a parcel from Phil.... all the way from Idaho or somewhere left of the staples.... and look what was inside...



Not just the little moose model thingie but other bits and bobs of meeses.... just look at that HUGE mug thing, it keeps drinks hot or cold and a fridge magnet and and and..... can ya see me beaming smile...... fanks Phil, it was so very kind and sweet of your family.... hope your little 'fanks package' arrives soon....

So..... where was I going with this post lol...... I have a very nice postman, and he has been me postie for way over 4 years and he knows he can knock me front door until the cows come home and 9 times out of 10 I wont hear it, cos Im usually not in lol or Im out the back in me kitchen...and the radio is ALWAYS on and the washing machine etc..... so, if he has anything to deliver that wont fit through me letterbox he knows to just come round the back where he will find me or if Im not in then he leaves whatever on me back door step, he aint suppose to but he does, cos he likes me and he knows I wont stitch him up lol and the funny thing is, even when he is on holiday or off work sick the stand in postie knows to do the same LOL..... and if the back door is shut (its never locked) he will shove any bits through the cat flap :)

And the funny thing is with me postie he ALWAYS reads where me letters or parcels have come from, Im forever calling him a nosey git lol and sometimes he even stands there and says 'open it then Mel, Im curious as to what it is' LOL....... good job I dont order stuff from those sexy online catalogues LOL

So, I heard the back gate open and saw me postie walk past the back window and shout through the open back door......

Mel MEl MEL you in...... I have a parcel for you...... this is the conversation that happened LMFAO.....

Postie - Mel looks like you have a parcel from America...

Me - Oye you, dont be so nosey...

Postie - (shaking me parcel) do you know what it is? ...

Me - Nope I have no clue (I didnt know Phil was sending a parcel)...

Postie - Come on then, open it....

Me - Brian, bugger off it might be something private....

Postie - Mel, why do you call me Brian? ...

Me - Cos thats your name...

Postie - But its not me name...

Me - Shut up Brian, of course its your name...

Postie - Its NOT me name, so why do you always call me Brian...

Me - What do you mean its not your name, Ive been calling you Brian for 4 years...

Postie - I know you have and it always makes me smile, why did you think that was my name...

Me - Errrmmmm cos you look like a Brian...

Postie - So you started calling me Brian without knowing my name cos you thought I 'looked' like a Brian.. - Mel what is a Brian suppose to look like...

Me - You.... you just look like a Brian.....

Postie - Did you escape from some secure unit, like years ago or something lol...

Me - Brian thats not nice, so if ya names not Brian what is it....

Postie - Im not gonna tell ya... cos Ive just got so use to you calling me Brian lol...

Me - But I cant call you Brian if thats not your real name, go on tell me what it is... and why didnt you say it was not your name when I first called you it...

Postie - Well, ya've been calling me Brian for years now so why change a tradition lol and there is no way Im telling ya me real name cos ya would only take the mickey out of it *belly laff* and when ya first called me Brian I was being polite and didnt like to say you had it wrong....

Me - Brian, since when have you ever been polite LOL... so its all your fault then.....

Postie - Well, then Brian it is.... I think its rather cute....

Me - Sod off Brian and dont forget to shut the gate...... lmao



This is Brian (or not as the case may be), he let me take his photo, I was laffing so much...... now dont he just scream 'Im a Brian'..... you can see Janet and Mabel pecking around the garden in the background lol

Why does everyone I know think Im crazy LMFAO.... and just let me get on with it...

Proof that Ive always called me postie BRIAN

I dont think there is any hope for me lol...... everyone must think Im a right proper dinlo... like Ive bovvered, much :)...

Ok enough Twaddle for a freezing cold official First Day Of Spring....

Slip said...

Nice mooseses you got there. I have a metal moose my dad welded up in 1969 for an art festival. It won best of show. Now I am gonna have to post a pic of Bullwinkle on my blog for ya!

Ciao Bino said...

Sounds like somebody has a little crush on you, Marmie! If that's not flirting, I'll kiss a moose!

[Let's all sing now:] "Mellie and Brian sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G! First comes luuuuuv, then comes marriage, then comes Brian with the baby carriage!"

Maggie May said...

I could've done with your snuggly moose out in the playground today as it was cold enough to get frost bite.
You've got me wondering just what Brian's name really is!

toadman said...

HA!! Brian is a perfectly wonderful British postman's name, I think.

Also, we recently got a nice parcel from Phil as well! I've yet to make a video thank-you though...but it's coming. Mark my words.

Phil rocks!

Bina said...

How sweet of Phil to send you that care package! He sent great stuff, too. LOVE the moose rug. You lucky thing.

I will agree, he does look like a Brian, but not sure it's because you said he does, or he really does, ya know? Maybe a Steven, too, but he sounds like a great fellow!

ciara said...

((((mel and anyone's for a good frolicking on a moose skin rug)))) looks like ya beat the stuffing out of the thing ha ha that was nice of phil to send ya all the moose things. i guess my little moose figurine i sent you PALES in comparison, huh? yeah, i see how it is...see if i ever send you another moose or reindeer w candy poops (actual EDIBLE, no less)again! LMAO jk.

the rug is cute, but i think it needs to stay where the nippers are...i can totally see the kids having lots of fun w it. :)

Akelamalu said...

Love the rug Mel, and all the lovely moose, mice, meese, things you got as well.

Postie definitely looks like a Brian!

Anonymous said...

It's funny in a way about the Moose thing, my wife has the same affliction. You two must have been sisters in a previous life if that's possible, as she is consumed with moose stuff. I just found a little statue of one for her with big brown eyes that droop a little like a sad puppy, she absolutely loves that thing. As for Brian, I guess he will be really curious very soon when a large tube like thing arrives in the mail, he will surely be bugging you then to find out what it is. Not your ordinary package for sure, the entire postal community will want him to get back to them as to what it is. Leave him hanging and let the rumors fly. The Stickman

JeanieSpokane said...

Marmie! I read your Father's Day tribute and cried buckets! You are proof there is a God and His humor spills out of you with every breath you take! My email is jeaniecookielee@yahoo.com and I would love to write more about this.

Oh - and MOOSE or Meeses, are my *favorite* things. I have all kinds of stuffed huggable moose that I bring to work with me and have on all my shelves. Very professional for a legal secretary. :)

Kati said...

LOL I LOVE the Moose rug!!! My daughter had a bear rug like that for a few years.

I tagged ya! Come see!

susan said...

Well, I wrote you a long comment, but it got deleted.

It ended with my name should be Susan Elizabeth Robyn Mary Carol Crystal, but don't call me Brian.

There is a story there, but I am not rewriting it.

Love You.

Katrina said...

Hurray for sweet Phil! And you know, if you ever make it over here to Idaho for Blogfest, we'll take you to see a REAL moose!

I agree...he does look a bit like a Brian, although he could also easily be a James. Hmmm...

Casdok said...

Wow!!! :)

OrdinaryShark said...

I'll bet his middle name is Brian!

buffalodickdy said...

Moose is also good eating! Your postman looked more like a "Phil".. my middle name is Brian! I always tell people it was misspelled on my birth certificate- it was supposed to be "Brain". That was until one woman said "Do you mean to tell me your parents named you Dick Brain?" :)

Jen said...

Love the story about Brian. And Happy Spring!

JBelle said...

what.the.hell? I haven't gotten a damn thing from Phil. JMJ!

In_spired said...

Number 1: I'll never see a picture of a moose that I don't think of marmitetoasty.

Number 1: The Brian Story is one of the cutest stories I've ever read. You could probably get it publlished in some book like "Chicken Soup for the Soul."

Great reading!!

Bay Views said...

Alas, I'm a bit preoccupied this week. My 70th birthday falls on Easter Sunday the 23rd. But if you send me your e-mail address, I'll send you some moose pictures.
hhuseland@aol.com

Mrs. Mac said...

Your collection of moose is bigger than my collection. I like the 'rug' moose ... my son Nathan sports a rustic bedroom ... cabin northwoods stuff ... including a few 'stuffed' animal moose and elk heads. Since he's inclined to knock pictures and the like off his walls ... I opted for something soft should it fall on his head. Great stuff from Phil.

Brian of Idaho said...

When might you be planning a visit to the Moose country of Idaho? July?

--not really Brian, just a fan!

Bina said...

I have a friend that lived in Alaska for several years, and she worked at this place called, "Once in Blue Moose". (She loves moose, too). She said the rug you have is anywhere from $150 to $200 (American) so you got a GREAT deal!

You go Girl!

Ciao Bino said...

Well, I don't see a ring on Brian's left hand! Why not? He's not half bad-looking.

By the way, I'm surprised that neither you nor Ciara went for the rather obvious "anyone's for a big package." ;)

Cedar Street Kid said...

I live right in front of a mountain, and often see wldlife. my
wife, who grew up in Baltimore, has never seen these things before, and is delighted to see elk, deer,bear,etc, One day last summer she got me and said"there is a black horse on the mountain.
I about died laughing-"honey, that is a moose"now she knows the difference.

Cindy said...

Mel- that postie looks like a pretty good package himself, lol...

Robin said...

Okay....now that I've picked myself off the floor where I was laughing myself stupid, my job is to begin going back through your blog and getting to know you. My God, this post was funny.

Happy Easter!

MarmiteToasty said...

Over here we dont have anything really exciting in the way of wildlife, and certainly nuffin dangerous or deadly.... whilst in Maine last summer we did get to see a real life black bear that ran out across the road and saw where the bears had eaten their porridge in me maties hideaway cabin in the woods cos all the grass had been squashed flat and they left their porridge bowls everywhere lol.... but alas the only moose we did get to see was in this wildlife park thing and it was behind a fence, which was sad.....

Oops... Didn't realise I'd done that. LOL! Oh, well, you knew what I meant. LOL!

Yeah, we're all moved in now. The place is still a bit of a mess because we don't have everything unpacked and sorted yet, but the moving part is over, and that's all that matters at the moment.

Ol' Lady said...

We must have some previous connection somewhere...the postal worker that use to deliver to our shop was a great guy...I never knew his name and always called him Steve, for many years, and he always answered to it...

Pamela said...

He looks like a Charles to me. I'm never home when the mail comes so I have no idea what my postman looks like.

I'm jealous - I want a moose, too.

MarmiteToasty said...

~((((toriZ)))~ I could do with moving to clear out most of me junk lol..... I hope you make many many happy memories in your new home :)....xxxxx

~(((((pamela)))))~ nah he aint no Charles lol thats to posh for him..... everytime I see him I now rack me brains to think what his name is lol....

When he came round the back yesterday with a parcel (chicken jug).... I said 'fanks Eddie' to see if he answered to that name lmfao........ he just burst out laffing at me LOL and walked out the back gate shaking his head lol......xxxxxx

Mei Del said...

The Mistress of the Moonlight said...

I am originally from Newfoundland, Canada. Moose (God love 'em) are our speed bumps!!! They are something that we have to look out for when we drive out along. I like to collect them, too. Those that you got from your friend are really lovely. M

jolie-jordan said...

You and your mooses make me and my stuffed sleeping duck feel okay. (lol)

So about your poor mailman...does he have a complex? So funny my girl you have me smiling like a fool into my computer and you're right...dammed if he isn't the perfect Brian. But, now you must do some detective work and find out his real name or it will drive me mad.

Who is Brian? WHO? See what I mean...I am so snoopy it will drive me batty.

Made my day, again.
