A L O H A !

" Santa Claus has the right idea. 
Visit people once a year. "
Victor Borge

is the prime color of the world,
and that from which 
its loveliness

Pedro Calderon de la Barca,

“ I always like walking in the rain,
so no one can see me crying. ”

   Charlie Chaplin
" A day without laughter
is a day wasted. "
Charlie Chaplin 

And now, on a personal note:

 Sure, we all gain a little weight
over the holidays,

but there's NO reason
to call me an elephant!
Oh wait. . .

Actually Sista' I do believe I have returned to the innermost hole on my belt comfortably.

OK - I wasn't expecting that verbiage on the trailer and it made me laugh out loud!

And love that Victor Borge quote - he was one of my dad's favorite comedians. :)

Oh, it may be a Cloudia elephant, but it's pretty blue. It's unique, different and charming, like you, but you are nowhere that size! I tried the website, but it isn't active... Is London getting a new elephant? DrumMajor
