Happy Hump Day

Hump Day is here.... only half-of-a-week to go!

One of my other favorite things, which I don't mention often, is that I LOVE elephants! Not only are elephants adorable, but they are super smart! First, did you know they do amazing self-portraits?

You can also see a video of the action here:



Secondly, check out one of my favorite articles about elephants rescuing tourists from the Tsunami in 2004

Eeep! They are just soooo cute! If only I could have one as a pet....

This is also one of my favorite poems that I remember reading as a kid:

HOLDING HANDS
by Lenore M. Link

Elephants walking
Along the trails
Are holding hands
By holding tails.
Trunks and tails
Are handy things
When elephants walk
In Circus rings.
Elephants work
And elephants play
And elephants walk
And feel so gay.
And when they walk-
It never fails
They're holding hands
By holding tails.

Whatever makes you happy today, I hope you are able to take it with you!
Happy Wednesday!
