...white elephant

Do you see it? A white elephant is an idiom for a valuable possession of which its owner cannot dispose and whose cost (particularly cost of upkeep) is out of proportion to its usefulness or worth. Sort of like Neverland prior to Michael Jackson's death. I am finally mailing off the white arch template today. It was no easy feat to find a reputable workroom to construct three of these treatments for me. They should arrive in less than two weeks. Last evening SK and I played a little tennis out back and cleared the cobwebs from our minds. We are lucky to get all kinds of animals out back; deer, foxes, birds, raccoons, a cat or two and more. On this day in 1796 the first elephant ever seen in the United States arrived from India. It was reported that a very young gay couple was seen rubbing their hands in glee, thinking financial gain and then decided to choose a tiger from the following shipment. Shown today, "Elephant Ribbon Tassel."
