I am on my way to spend the day with my favorite sister. She and I plus other family members are in the process of downsizing again. That is the polite way to say we are going through boxes and saying things such as: “Where did all this junk comes from?” And more importantly “What in the heck are we going to do with it?”
This takes us to gifts and let us address the elephant in the room, or in this case the over 100 elephants in the storage unit.
It all started when this fabulous woman, let’s call her, Celeste – began to collect elephants – not the real ones – at least not to my knowledge.
Then many of her students – also known as Cherubs – began to collect elephants. This includes one of Celeste’s original Cherubs, my sister. At the time of this writing, we are not certain of the inventory of elephants in storage, but the number of boxes marked “Elephants” gives me pause.
Our current idea is this to sell them as gifts. Let me know if you are interested in purchasing an elephant. I am certain we can make you a Christmas bargain – this entire box for only $1.00 and it is BOGO!
The alternative is: If ya’ll don’t buy these elephants Celeste and Tarvah are going to be so surprised on Christmas morning when Santa leaves them on their doorstep. I think an elephant in your camera range, T, will add much to your fabulous wildlife photos.
