“Ivory, Old and New”


Description from Chicky Red-haired Grammy: I read the other day that the last wild Javanese rhinoceros had been killed by poachers for its horn. I fear the elephant may suffer the same fate.

    When I first saw this I was going to tease you about Jack the R visiting another of your picks. Then I read your note and an evil word came to mind to describe the people who profited from the extinction of a species. Thank you for the wonderful tribute. Shame on the greed.

    Merilee, I also read about this tragedy and am just heartbroken. Such a beautiful pick to raise awareness of what happened to this now extinct species. I also fear that one day many animals will only be able to be seen in zoos. :(

    To quote dear Martha: “You are too good to me, my dear Chickies.”By-the bye, I am currently in Connecticut helping to celebrate my granddaughter’s 10th birthday. A big event, leaving the single digits!
    Karen – the candy corn has disappeared here. Maybe I can find red and green “Christmas Corn”.

    Thank you, LE! It will indeed be a special day for her. Unfortunately, it is also the day of my mother’s death one year ago, but there is symmetry combining the old with the young. As it has always been and always will be.

    Merilee, my heart goes out to you — my mother passed away on October 30, 2009, and sometimes it is still so hard to believe she’s not here with us (except in spirit). You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time, my friend.
