The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on
its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Mikele stood frozen,
thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant
trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away. Mikele never forgot that
elephant or the events of that day.

Twenty years later, Mikele was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his
teenaged son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the
creatures turned and walked over to near where Mikele and his son Tapu
were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Mikele, lifted its
front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that
several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.

Remembering the encounter in 1986, Mikele couldn’t help wondering if
this was the same elephant. Mikele summoned up his courage, climbed
over the railing and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right
up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted
again, wrapped its trunk around one of Mikele’s legs and slammed him
against the railing, killing him instantly.

Probably wasn’t the same elephant.

A Little Help

A little girl asked her Mom, "Mom, may I take the dog for a walk around the block?" Mom replies, "No, because she is in heat." "What’s that mean?" asked the child. "Go ask your father. I think he’s in the garage." The little girl goes to the garage and says, "Dad, may I take Belle for a walk around the block? I asked Mom, but she said the dog was in heat,and to come to you." Dad said,"Bring Belle over here." He took a rag, soaked it with gasoline,and scrubbed the dog’s backside with it to disguise the scent, and said "OK,you can go now, but keep Belle on the leash and only go one time around the block."  The little girl left and returned a few minutes later with no dog on the leash. Surprised, Dad asked, "Where’s Belle?" The little girl said, "She ran out of gas about halfway down the block, so another dog is pushing her home."
