    Meet Bo

    Yesterday my orthopedic doctor told me to use my knee as I was able as long as I didn't bend, squat or lift. Soooo, being about to go batty staying in the house I drove a bunch of folks to a satellite circus the Al Menah Shriners sponored in Shelbyville, Tennessee. here, I got to meet Bo again. I met Bo last year at another circus. By now you are saying; "Who is Bo?". Bo is supposedly the largest elephant to perform in a circus in present day. And Bo is just a growing "teenager in elephant years!

    Here's a pic of Bo leading the other elephants around the ring. You can just make out his trainer on the other side of his trunk.

    Here's another shot with Bo, on the right, to compare him with the other two elephants.

    I guess I should have said, here's Bo's behind. Sorry, but right now I move pretty slow and their act would have been over if I had gone to the other side of the arena.

    I LOVE it! Elephants are such cool gentle giants aren't they? I can not believe how agile they are for such a huge creature. Thanks so much for the introduction Wes.

    Now go put that knee up!

    Hang him from my ceiling? Bo's head would just about touch the ceiling. besides, how would I get him in the house? he's bigger than my front porch. A smoked ham the size of that guy's leg would collapse the oof if I ever got it hung!

    Now you'd have room in your kitchen Gypsy Mystery

    I would have room....but I have certain rules about hanging dead things from my ceiling......Of course if they are still alive when put there...that I might be able to handle....Care to come over for coffee Wes?

    So Gypsy Mystery...are you revealing your true self? Perhaps your real name is "Black Widow"?

    You been watching too much "Hellraiser"? I see thru your plan...invite me over for coffee then you'd hang me from your ceiling.

    At least it won't be thru two summers . Besides, what in the world would you do, having to explain me hanging from your ceiling?

    Yea Ivan, he is...specially when you stand next to him, which I did last year and didn't have a camera with me. Kinda scary, actually.

    Gypsy Mystery, or Gypsy Widow, or whoever you are today.

    Why in the world would you want to wrap me in a cocoon?

    I think I'd look pretty good hanging above the sink!
