I can't thank you enough to those of you who contributed. Nice to know how committed you all are to making this a fun, generous, place to be.

I'll give back a little from my childhood:

How do you get an elephant into an oak tree?
Sit him on an acorn and wait!

I've remember that silly joke since I was 10 - over half a century. Not sure it is worth the brain cells but I can't seem to shake the thing.

Here's to a successful happy Not-A-Raffle Raffle. Here's to you all who have made it possible to have more than a few chances!

How come you never see an elephant around here?? They love to play hide & seek! And they are very good at it!!

Oh boy! What a fabulous watering can! That is so cute! I love it. Thanks for posting that.
Has anyone here seen those pistachio commercials on television with the elephant?? Those things crack me up!
He is going through security at the airport and the TSA agent is patting him down. He yells in a loud voice, "Hey, that is not ivory!" Cracks me up every time! Pistachio nuts are everywhere.
