Hey guys!! Subscribers, thank you so much for signing on to my page! How cool to see you all on here. Do not be afraid to comment and talk to me. Haha, as you can see I can be a talker at times. Lol. Crazy thing happened the other day!! So I was going to Walmart and I noticed the traffic is stopped for some crazy reason. Of course this little Haitian nosey girl gets her camera ready and trying to move my car up as far I can go. Ugg, tapping my foot, Seriously everyone: God did not give me any patience…literally. After what seems like decades (more like five minutes) I see it..A dang moose!! In the middle of the day! They are active in the day but tend to stay away from people and definitely WALMART!!!This girl is just chill’n and eating away not caring that there are like half the world checking her out and taking pictures. So, being Francia I had to go and google stuff about moose! Heheh. Heres what I learned!!…Oh btw here she is
