I think I've seen this before but it's pretty amazing
considering this is an African (not Indian) elephant.
Look at those ears.
Actually, like the girl in the video, I would have liked

|College football season is
about to begin; here are some funny anecdotes to get you
prepared. Some old. Some new.

just saw his grades and he doesn't know the meaning of a
lot of words."

BONUS CROCHET PATTERNS
(Sorry; not theme-related):
is right around the corner, friends! I couldn’t be more excited. This roundup of
15 fall crochet patterns is right up my alley, and makes me very excited about
the coming of my favorite season. I love apple cider, driving through the
mountains looking at leaves, and everything else that goes with autumn.
Unfortunately, summer and fall aren’t that much different here in Central
Florida. Instead of crisp, cool air we’ll be enjoying hot, humid afternoons.
Thankfully, crochet patterns like this can help me feel like it’s fall even when
it’s toasty outside."
RECIPES (Sorry; not particularly theme-related):
Happy Hubby Ground Beef Casserole
- "This is one of those casserole recipes that will stay in the
family for years, and everyone will request it often. Happy Hubby Ground
Beef Casserole is a recipe with ground beef, egg noodles, and three
kinds of cheese! It's flavored with tomato sauce and sour cream, which
make it creamy and delicious. This easy ground beef casserole recipe is
hearty enough to fill up the whole family."
- Hubby's Loaded Ham, Cheese, and Bisquick Bake
another meal with your baked ham leftovers. Loaded Ham and Cheese
Casserole is a hearty simple dish that will satisfy your family's
hunger. Loaded with cheese and broccoli this ham casserole recipe will
be a hit."

For Once in My Life
(c. 1933 - July 23, 2007) and Orlando Murden, 1967
(b. 13 May 1950)
For once in my life I have someone who needs me
Someone I've needed so long
For once, unafraid, I can go where life leads me
And somehow I know I'll be strong
For once I can touch what my heart used to dream of
Long before I knew
Someone warm like you
Would make my dreams come true
For once in my life I won't let sorrow hurt me
Not like it's hurt me before
For once, I have something I know won't desert me
I'm not alone anymore
For once, I can say, this is mine, you can't take it
As long as I know I have love, I can make it
For once in my life, I have someone who needs me
