I ended 2016 with a Foto Friday post and start 2017 with another. The previous year ended with the cat family. The new year begins with a baby elephant, mouth wide open to receive the big (well, not really that big for an elephant!) ball of rice from its caretaker.
The picture is from my latest visit to the Elephant Rehabilitation Centre. This time it had been to show the place to my daughter-in-law. Oh yes, I am now a MIL aka mother-in-law, a brand new one at that being just a few days short of a month old.
Now you know why the blog was gathering dust. It was not just the wedding and family-time though that kept me away. There was the bout of viral fever too. But anyway, here I am now and before you know it I’ll be back to my favorite pastime of boring the pants off the readers at Shail’s Nest! 😉
Wish me luck 😀

Enjoy this new phase of your life. I have missed your blogs.
Thank you, Anne. Will soon be back in the groove 🙂

Love the baby’s photo! Good luck, Shail!
Thanks, Sandhya 🙂
Welcome back. Yes, I wondered where you had been off to.
Congratulations on becoming MIL. Fun times ahead for the DIL, I am sure.
Love the baby elephant. Makes you want to go and hug them. Babies ARE cute, no matter the species.
Thank you 🙂 Yes, babies of all species look cute!

The aana is so cute 🙂
It was so cute to watch it imitate the action of picking up something and eating while waiting for food to come. 🙂 Poor thing was hungry!

NEVER boring, Shail!
Hehe… Thanks, Mick! 🙂
congratulations to the newly weds and for your promotion too 🙂 🙂
Thank you, M 😀 😀
Aww I love that little elephant :)). He looks so cute and happy.
And congratulations to the newly weds and on becoming a mother in law ! :). Would like to hear about your son’s marriage and more about the new member (was it a love marriage, arranged marriage, how they meet?). Am sure your DIL will feel blessed to have a mother in law like you, progressive, open minded and very warm and caring 😉
Thank you! They chose each other 🙂 And the dil thinks I am ‘cool’ 😉
