So..can't ignore the elephant in the room, I guess. Many will celebrate by getting trunk, but I'll just have a peanut, thanks.

Have you ever seen the picture book "Faithful Elephants" before? It's written about a true story, and is read aloud national radio every year in Japan. It's sob-worthy.

I love elephants. Did you know they will stop and examine the bones of other dead elephants. I've seen this on T.V. It's like they're mourning the death of another elephant.

When they find one, they put their trunks on the bones, as if kissing them. That gets to me every time.

Thanks for celebrating elephant day:~)

But, isn't every day elephant appreciation day, really?

I think our blogging friendship began around elephant appreciation day, when I posted about seeing the baby elephant at the Oregon Zoo. I might be wrong, however, because I do not have a memory like an elephant. :)
