    Elephant's Memory - A Touching Story

    In 1986, Mkele Mbembe was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from
    college. On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull
    elephant
    standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed
    so
    Mbembe approached it very carefully.

    He got down on one knee and inspected the elephant's foot, and found a
    large thorn deeply embedded in it.

    As carefully and as gently as he
    could,
    Mbembe worked the thorn out with his hunting knife, after which the
    elephant gingerly put down its foot. The elephant turned to face the man
    and with a rather stern look on its face, stared at him. For several
    tense
    moments Mbembe stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being
    trampled.
    Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned and walked away.
    Mbembe
    never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.

    Twenty Years later he was walking through a zoo with his teenaged son.
    As
    they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and
    walked over to near where Mbembe and his son Tapu were standing. The
    large
    bull elephant stared at Mbembe and lifted its front foot off the ground
    then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted
    loudly, all the while staring at the man.

    Remembering the encounter in 1986, Mbembe couldn't help wondering if
    this
    was the same elephant. Mbembe summoned up his courage, climbed over the
    railing and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the
    elephant and stared back in wonder. Suddenly the elephant trumpeted
    again,
    wrapped its trunk around one of the man's legs and swung him wildly back
    and forth along the railing, killing him.

    Probably wasn't the same elephant.

    Something for Thanksgiving?

    PREGNANT TURKEY STORY
    One year at Thanksgiving, my mom went to my sister's house for the traditional feast.

    Knowing how gullible my sister is, my mom decided to play a trick.

    She told my sister that she needed something from the store.
    When my sister left, my mom took the turkey out of the oven, removed the stuffing, stuffed a Cornish hen,and inserted it into the turkey, and re-stuffed the turkey.

    She then placed the bird(S) back in the oven.

    When it was time for dinner, my sister pulled the turkey out of the oven and proceeded to remove the stuffing. When her serving spoon hit

    something, she reached in and pulled out the little bird.

    With a look of total shock on her face, my mother exclaimed,

    "Patricia, you've cooked a pregnant bird!" At the reality of this horrifying news, my sister started to cry.

    It took the family two hours to convince her that turkeys lay eggs!

    Yep.................SHE'S BLONDE!


    (I think I will post these little OTs and after awhile delete them to make way for more important items.....SuSan)

    Loved the story about the pregnat turkey,lol

    The guy with the elephant, well some people never learn.

    I think the OT humor is just as important as the serious stuff too. We all need a balance. Laughter is the best medicine- well besides good pain meds,lol

    Thanks and have a great day-Carla

    What could be more important than these valuable lessons about the wonders of nature and our fellow living creatures? Elephants, turkeys and blondes.

    And so was the blonde all forlorn,
    That milked the cow w/ the crumpled horn,
    That worried the dog
    That bothered the cat
    That chased the rat
    That ate the malt
    That lay in the house that Jack built!
