A Thanksgiving Card from the Cement Elephants

Happy Thanksgiving. Bumbastories has already posted this Thanksgiving Greeting from the cement elephants twice, but what the heck. On a serious note, it is incumbent on us to mention that Bumba has maintained a long abstinence from all spiritual contact – and indeed any and all forms of communication – with any and all cement animal sculptures.
