Elephants walking along the trails
Are holding hands by holding tails

Trunks and tails are handy things
When elephants walk in circus rings

Elephants work and elephants play
And elephants walk and feel so gay.

And when they walk, it never fails,
They're holding hands by holding tails.
- Lenore M. Link

There has been a big stir over at the WTM message boards about Pete's Pond - a livecam set up at a pond in Botswana. The camera is sponsored by National Geographic, and any time during day or night you can see animals coming and going around the pond.

I hear you can see elephants and zebras and monkeys, but I have been watching off and on for a few days and only saw a bird or two and some bugs flying at night. As I am typing this message it is evening at Pete's Pond and I have seen an ostrich and two deer-like animals. So cool.

I'll be watching for those elephants today..

Wendy, I love the poems you put in and on your blog. I wonder where you got the most recent? "Elephants are holding hands by holding tails."

Mom, I hope you are joking - you sent it to me!! Have I already posted the ele-telephony poem?

Wendy, I recognized the poem. It is one of my favorites. I don't think you have posted the ele-telephony one yet. I'll be waiting to see that. I think some of my files are still in boxes in the garage. Do I still have the originals or do you? Mom
