The Pink Elephant, Red Shoes

Pink Elephant - Nice, France , Digital Photograph, e. schoettler

It was hard to turn my back on this little darling. Isn't he cute? And, playful. I was charmed by him. Such a plucky little beast, looking me right in the eye. But there was no room in my suitcase and we had ten more days on the road in Provence. I took this picture instead of leaving empty-handed.

Jim sighed his relief when he heard the shutter click.

Since then it has gotten ever easier to take pictures and leave "finds" behind.

But I can't always walk away.

Aren't these wonderful? There they were, at the Adams County Rescue Mission, only $1. Worn but still glittery. Some little girl had tapped and scruffed across a stage wearing them.

Not me. Although I always wished I could. I was a nine year old klutz when I took tap lessons at Sacred Heart - my feet just did not get it. But you should have heard me - even walking across the large practice room I could make my taps sing on the wooden floors.

It was wonderful. I felt like Shirley Temple.

No, way I could leave these shows behind! Good thing we were driving.
