Many years ago my children were ready to get me an elephant ranch. I had a running joke that elephants were my favourite animal. When asked what I needed for a birthday, I just told them to buy me a place for my elephant.
Yesterday we were out on a ranch. For a wedding. With sheep, and chickens and what sounded like a few coyotes. Oh, yes, there were some 200 people to see the wedding as well.
I looked over the ranch. Flowing hills coverged into watering holes in the lower basin. This would be perfect for an elephant! Or for chickens!
I’ll leave it up to the kids. See what they might surprise me with . . . I’m not holding my breath!!
