pink Saturday------ pink elephant

Welcome to Pink Saturday. Time for those shots what contain some pink.

I you are paying good attention when traveling down hiway 141 in Fenton, Missouri you will see a giant pink elephant sitting on the side of the roadway. It has been there for as long as I have been traveling that stretch of road. I have heard a dozen different stories about how this elephant came to be sitting in front of the gas station there. But, a good amount of web searching failed to confirm any of them. However, I did find that there is a almost identical pink elephant wearing glasses and holding a martini glass sitting in front of a bar in Indiana.

While going to visit with a friend in that area recently we stopped for the following photos of me and the pink elephant.

  4. What an extraordinary creature. How on earth did they get planning permission to erect it? (do you have planning permission in the US?)

  5. I've seen a pink elephant before;)...I think it might have had something to do with that martini!

  6. Happy Pink Saturday. It seems right he's still a mysterious pink elephant then. He probably ran away from the circus. Very cool.

  8. L♥ve your pink goodies this week. Just when I think I have enough pink in my life I participate in Pink Saturday and see even more sweet things I’d enjoy having in my home or flowers for my gardens or just to look at☺ What could be better than the color pink dancing in your head all morning?

    Thanks so much for sharing. Hoping your weekend is filled with sunshine and the comfort of those you love and who love you.

  9. Too, too funny. In my wildest imagination I've never pictured a pink elephant. Perhaps in front of a bar because there is a drink by that name, but not where you saw yours. I really enjoyed this post. You get the award for most novel post and picture of the day.

Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
