Eliminated Elephant

Apparently I am just a horrible rancheranimal husbandzookeeper, person!   I keep killing all my animals!    First the cow, then the cat, now the elephant!  (But they were just clutter to me!!)

Blissfully unaware of his fate.

 

 

Whoa, PETA!  Before you arrest me, they weren’t alive in the first place!   Whew!  Had to make that perfectly clear!!

All the real animals from Melinda’s Menagarie  are alive and well, to this day.   (Unless the gators got one of the birds last night.   But, we won’t think about that!)

It’s not my fault that I don’t like animals.  Mama didn’t either.   So, it’s her fault!!

Killing the cow was a deep impulse, driving me to do the dirty deed.   Might have been a mistake too, I’m always out of butter and milk now!

Killing the cat was an act of compassion.   Remember her broken leg?   That’s what you do with horses, right?   See, not my fault!  I had to do it for her sake!!

Killing the elephant just had to be done.  Deaths usually come in threes, so again, not my fault.

Besides looking hideous, he was suffering from osteoporosis!   Evidence:  how easily he shattered when hurled, placed softly into the trash can!

The poor elephant just went to pieces.

 

 

Poor old elephant, just thrown away with the trash.   Good riddance I say!

She begins to feel better.  Finally!   She takes the girls on adventures,

and makes friends.  She learns how to do some many new things, like quilting, making Tundraberry Jam, and weaving baskets.  Strawberry Girl even starts working part time, to fund her Coca Cola habit.

Man Giant was so happy, and relieved that Strawberry Girl seems to be recovering.

But, the messes and clutter begin creeping back in again.  Strawberry Girl feels helpless, and hopeless.

She takes dancing lessons

to make herself feel better.    But that plan backfired.  After dance lessons, some of her new friends went to the bar, to dance.  While they were there, it was inevitable that they began drinking.  Strawberry Girl didn’t drink.  But, everyone offered to buy her a drink.

So, she decided to try a Fuzzy Navel.

Big mistake.

1 drink lead to 2, 2 lead to 5, and 5 lead to constant drinking every weekend, after dance class.
