Moose and Malarkey

moose, alaska

When serving the crew their daily slop in the port of Juneau, June heard the sailors teasing one of the fresh “recruits”—calling him “Moose”. He had raised a bull moose from a baby, and it followed him everywhere. It raised a ruckus as the captain captured the young man, which earned him a whipping. June noticed Moose had kind eyes, despite his fresh wounds.

“For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”
