Was Your Daily Elephant Hiding?

No, Your Daily Elephant’s router died, and so there was no internet connection.  But isn’t it amazing how an elephant can hide behind just a few spindly trees?  And if he made no sound, you’d probably not even notice he was there.

      1. YW. Our router went out recently, and today the printer died. It was a mouse that died two weeks ago. Do you think they have this stuff timed?
