Yesterday Lea at Cici's Corner posted a question and answer piece that I thought I might do, but I got hung up on the first question and knew that's what I wanted to write about. The question: What's your favorite animal?
I love bears and buffaloes are right up there, but at heart my favorite animal is the elephant. Always has been, going back to when we were in high school and for my birthday Mac gave me a stuffed elephant with his class ring on a chain around its neck.
Then about 14 years ago he took me away for a weekend and gave me another elephant with a beautiful sapphire and diamond ring on a chain.
The first elephant is long gone, our daughter played it to death. But the second elephant is still here, along with a couple of friends.
This week Mac painted an elephant and I fell in love with it, so he's going to paint one for me too.
I may get around to the rest of those questions one day.
