Postcards from Paradise #1

 On Monday, a big top circus tent suddenly appeared three blocks from our house at the rodeo grounds.  My husband and I took a walk over to check things out.

We discovered camels and lots of other animals, like brown zebras and miniature ponies, relaxing and having snacks.

But the most amazing and dear part was when a trainer – who saw us taking pictures –  brought over three elephants, walked them around in a little circle, and had them pose…just for us!   I swear, it was one of the sweetest moments ever…something that you think might have happened only in days gone by.  

Paradise…in our own backyard!
