In the year 2009, a little girl from Texas embarked on a journey with her pet elephant, rooster, pig and rabbit.
She was going to bring a Christmas tree to her friend in California.
But she took a detour to Winnipeg, Canada to visit her friend Renee.
...and proceeded to go through Arizona to visit her friend Deborah.
Until she finally reached her friend in California, but her friend was not home.
And the HOA manager told her she could not bring the elephant into the compound.
So she camped out at LAX and waited for the next flight to the Philippines.
I drew this series in 2009 when my dearest friend Renee was still alive. Renee was loved by many. When she passed away from cancer, the blogging world turned dark that day. But Renee was such a bright spirit. Sometimes when I miss her, I read our "commentsation" on our blogs and I laugh so hard, I cry.
Merry Christmas to all my friends.
