Deanna had seen this and wanted me to post it.
She says that we have the dogs and the lake, i.e., Halfmoon — and all that we are missing is an elephant!
While I would love an elephant I am not sure how practical it would be in Alton. It might be too cold. Plus not sure whether it will qualify per the very stringent covenants we have on this road as a ‘common pet’. Also not sure how practical it would be for me to take an elephant running up Prospect Mountain Road. I know they can run, at speeds, for short distances. Not that I run fast, but not sure whether an elephant will keep up with us going up the hill. Had never thought about that. Maybe its stride is so large that it could. That would be quite a site wouldn’t it — 4 of us trotting up Prospect Mountain.
