Elephants Reunited After 22 Years Apart


Watch the short film here.
This wonderful film was created by world-renowned filmmaker Allison Argo from ArgoFilms. Read more of this story on PBS. I want to know everything there is to know about Shirley and Jenny...free at last to live out their years together. This footage proves that elephants never forget.
Shirley and Jenny, two crippled elephants were reunited at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee after a 22-year separation. The bonding was immediate, intense and unforgettable between the two former circus elephants. But long after the cameras were turned off, the wondrous moments would continue. Snif, snif.

Sweet Attic Office

I love an attic office with a view. Mine is like being in a tree house. Since I got a wireless laptop I don't spend as much time there as in the past. It's so nice to be untethered. image

Autumn

It's time to give the grass a crew cut so the leaves will blow away. I need a couple of sunny dry days before I get on my riding mower once again. Have a good week. Will you be driving to New England along with the other leaf peepers? via
