Do I have to say ANYTHING? Isn’t this enough. We are NOT done as yet. Quite a long ways to go as yet. I have noticed the absence of yellows & oranges. Mainly red.

What can I say other than I am very fortunate & I know & appreciate that. Though roses are now scarce, I do stop & smell the flowers — so to speak. I do NOT take it for granted. We probably will have snow within 6-weeks. But, foliage first. SMILE.

Today, 09/11/2020, in Alton, New Hampshire — during my morning walk. You can’t get any better proof. Yes, I have seen color for the last 3 to 4 weeks. It is starting to get more noticable. I will make a point of posting as many pictures as I can. SMILE. Enjoy.

Mid-August And 2020 Fall Foliage Is Starting To Appear In Central New Hampshire.

Kind of incongruous in that it has been a NOTICEABLY hot Summer with multiple weeks of non-stop over 80F days. So much so that even I might have to concede ‘Global Warming‘.

But, some nights have been cool, i.e., low 60Fs (if not slightly cooler). That will do it.

I hear the same is happening in Wisconsin.

Could prove to be an interesting Fall.

I will, of course, keep you posted.

That Tourist Elephants In Thailand Are Suffering Because Of Coronavirus Is Absolute Bloody Poppycock.

From ‘Google News’. See search bar.


Yes, of course, tourism has been badly hit and coffers are drying up. That we all understand.

But, when it comes to Thailand & elephants we need to factor in some other criteria.

Elephants, in Thailand or anywhere else, are NOT fussy, picky eaters. They do not need grains, elephant food, supplements or anything fancy.

They will just eat foliage. Any foliage. Yes, they will eat lots of it. Yes, LOTS. They will tear down and eat most green or yellow (think banana) foliage that they can get their mighty trunks on.

Yes, I know my elephants. I grew up in Ceylon where we had plenty of wild and domesticated elephants. I know my elephants.

I also spent 3 Summers in Thailand. So, I know Thailand better than most.

Elephants in Thailand cannot BLOODY starve. There is too much food ALL around them. Yes, the Thai will have to manage how the elephants get access to that food.

NO. NO. NO. They should NOT be let FREE! They are domesticated elephants used to being with & around people. You can’t cut them loose. Yes, they can and should be taken to parks, open wilderness that Thailand is (still) full off or vegetation should be shipped to them.

They have the money. They made PLENTY when the tourists were coming.

Plus, Thailand is NOT a poor country. They can well afford to take care of the poor elephants.

OK?

Got that. SMILE.
