My other blog Ella's Edge will stay as it is. A place where I will post creative thoughts, ideas, art and surprises. I wanted a home for my words. Lately, my posts have been too long winded, but here I can justify it.
My Mom really does collect elephants and I really did and do collect words and quotes in journals. It started, when I was a teen. I still collect words, when I am going to write poetry. I thought this would be an interesting name.
I always asked Mom, why elephants? My Dad gave her one when she was eighteen. She has never bought one for herself. People give them to her, once they discover she collects them.
My parents met at a movie theater. She worked the concession stand and he was the movie projectionist. She use to sit on an elephant outside of Perry's Nut House with her sister-in-law, when they had a night off, from the theater. (There are two elephants. Mama is on the top of the building and the baby is inside). My Dad n' Mom would go eat at some diner. Dad would try to race someone and attempt to out run the cops. They would go visit his sister, who lived near Perry's Nut House. He told me he really did out run the cops. There was a secret back road to the Drive Inn Theater.
The comedy n' drama masks are my parents. They use to be in the ticket booth. Check out that old speaker, for the Drive Inn....whoa~
I remember the day, she told me, about the elephant being moved to the theater. She seemed sad, my Dad had died a few years before. I told her, what a perfect place for this elephant to be. You met Dad at the theater, he gave you your first elephant, and now the elephant is where it belongs. She seemed pleased with my view. Mom is also extremely scared of mice, just like an elephant. She actually has stood in a chair, just like in the cartoons and screamed her head off.
When I think of elephants, I think of how loud and gentle they are. I guess, this could describe me, lol. My family tells me, when I get excited I get loud, I do! I do try to be gentle, no I'm not a giant. I'm actually only 5'1, but I did marry one, ;D (He is almost 6'4)!
Tell me about your blog's name or why did you start one?!
