Fritz Thaisingers favourite elephant.


Meni, our working elephant, handled many a load of circus material

Sometimes I come upon my most intimate old girl-friend, Meni.
She is only fifty in my eyes quite a young piece. We both have our
memories in common, for she was once our best-of-all working
elephant. She is familiar with loading ramps in four continents.
Indeed, she has often had to build them where there were none. Later
in life she came to levelling out bomb-torn ground and hauling away
dud bombs. She has ploughed our arable land, and on my seventieth
birthday she serenaded me with a barrel organ. Now here she comes,
like a faithful nannie, leading a young African elephant by a leading
string as thick as your arm. He is rather an undisciplined fellow, a
recent capture, and he tugs all ways. He looks as if he would like to
turn somersaults, he is so spirited, when suddenly, slappp! and Meni
has given him such a box behind his enormous rhubarb-leaf flap ear.
Now then, pay attention, won't you, do what your auntie tells you!
