If I'd Only Known
I'm sure something could have been worked out to get our Princess one for her birthday, too.
Maybe next year when she finally turns 30...
Beach-goers in Pinellas County, Fla., were surprised to see an elephant cooling down in the ocean over the weekend and a video of the animal standing in the surf has been making waves.
The elephant was apparently at North Redington Beach as part of a birthday party for a 60-year-old woman.
She had received permission in February to have the partying pachyderm attend the event, Bay News 9 reported.
"We could not believe our eyes," witness Todd Unbehagen told HLN TV. "There was a professional elephant trainer there and a couple police officers for the event. It looked like somebody was having a party (private) at the beach house, and the elephant was giving rides as well to the guests."
We'll haf'ta start crowd-sourcing for that starting in January, though, cause the itinerant Eskimos keep blowin' their paychecks on booze and beefcake - what, you thought they were male?
We wanted the work done right the first time.
Happy Monday, everyone!

I think I saw that elephant a couple times.
But she was pink.

Thar be ephalants!
My wife is on a photo safari in Kenya and Tanzania. I would have gone but for the hip. I am reliably informed that ephalants are both gaseous and odiferous.
Can I stamp my feet? Olduvai Gorge.
