Unable to knit on the train ride home yesterday I sat staring out the window only to behold a bunch of elephants!
Ok, maybe four.
But elephants none the less.
One of them had a blue star painted on either side of his tail. Because, you know, those show elephants are kind of flashy.
Turns out Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Circus is setting up for a run in the stadium next to my transfer station this weekend.
Add me to the list of people for whom circuses lost their shine as we got older, but getting to see some random elephants on my ride home, in the middle of a fair sized city, was pretty exciting.
I made sure to put the camera in my purse last night in case I saw them again today (I forgot to grab the USB cord, but that didn't end up mattering).
I couldn't get a window seat on the correct side of the train this morning, but it was ok because they weren't out. It was a bit chilly and maybe too early. I have high hopes for the ride home so I'm going to make a real effort to get a window so I can get a picture.
Wish me luck!
