Hey, guess what?

Yep, I’m abandoning the site again for a few days. But I’ll be back next week, and I won’t go away again until sometime this fall, promise.

Here’s what’s going on: the youngest kid is a senior in high school this year, and we’ve been taking long weekends all summer to visit colleges across the country, as we weren’t able to do so last summer because of the goddamned global pandemic. We have two more schools to see, and hopefully they won’t shut their campuses back down again just before we get there because of this new Delta wave. Keep your fingers crossed for us.

In the meantime, here are a bunch of wonderful baby elephants. Enjoy while I find someplace for my own baby elephant to go to school.

In fact, it would seem baby elephants are something of drama queens:
