Moose crossing

This is my former Indianapolis News colleague David Mannweiler with his giant moose head lodged in the sunroof of his Audi, en route to my house at 5009 N. College Ave. in Indianapolis.

It was on a summer day sometime in the mid-1970s and David was moving to a new home that had no space for such an enormous wall hanging. So I offered my house as a temporary moose sanctuary. We hung the moose head on the upstairs landing where it cast a glass eye over events in the living room for the next few years.

He eventually reclaimed it.
