My friends tease me because I have this thing about elephants.
Some people believe they bring good luck. I am one of those people who
believes that having a trinket or picture or anything with an elephant
on it is bad luck especially if the trunk is down. I don't know where I
got these ideas I just know I have them.
But I am reading a fantastic book called Water for Elephants. I recommend it whether you are supersticious or not.
