A SERENDIPITY EVENT......
Never did I ever imagine that we would have ELEPHANTS FROM SAIGON in our family again.
In 1988 we gave the ones MC carried home in the late 60's in the cargo section of a C124, to Steve. In fact, they are now in his apartment in Seoul!!!! A round trip voyage!!!!
Last month one of our great Dolcetto-ans, Kasey, (who has ones very similar to the ones we had) mentioned that a couple who lives on the Reservation had some of these jewels. And......they wanted to get rid of them.....
After all the Holidays were over, Kasey called Donna to see if she and Tom, (retired AF, of course!) still wanted to part with the DEARS!! Sure enough they did, and Kasey immediately contacted me......yesterday!!!!!
It didn't take me long........MC and I picked them up this afternoon!!!
AND HERE THEY ARE.......4 OF THEM!!!!!!
They are white.... with gold and blue accents.....
The ones we had were all green. I have never seen white ones before. It's just Serendipity that we have them in our White and Gold home!!!!
Now, follow these little guys as they tramp through the Bucket List House ...and even the Terrace!!!!
You know they will pop up in many different places with many different uses as time goes by................
Happy Memorial Day!
