  1. Bison Bison Bison. Amazing! I grew up with a Bison ~ in the house. My grandfather found a bison head in North Dakota when he was young….and it was always over the fireplace at their Lake house in Washington. Such a memory growing up to see this huge beast in their small house. One Christmas with a roaring fire, the poor Bison’s beard caught on fire. We could smell it before we noticed it! No more “goatee!” That bison has been in my parents house the last 45 years. Now, it looks like their estate is sold and we have 8 heads and that bison to re-home! ARGH!. 🙂 Hard to find someone who wants a rescue bison!

    1. Lol! The demand for stuffed animal heads is at a low these days. My father tried to bring home a moose head once. Generally, my mother was very placid and just went along with my father’s fancies. For some reason though, she took an immediate dislike to that moose head and wouldn’t even let him take it out of the car. One of the few arguments I can ever remember them having. The few times they did argue, Mom always won.

  2. Hahaha! A woman and her home decor are NOT to be underestimated. Yes. These heads are a burden ~ from a time, now thankfully past, where values did not dignify creation and creatures. The environmental movement and native philosophy has done a lot to bring us instruction ~ we are finally listening.

    1. I’ve had the thought more than once this year that perhaps the Mayans got it wrong – 2012 wasn’t the end of things, 2020 is. At least, in the sense that we are having to rethink and repurpose our lives. Hopefully the worldwide suffering caused by the pandemic will be made worthwhile but changes that lead us to a better world for everyone!
