About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

More Elephants


This was taken at Pinnewala Elephant Orphanage. This is the big State run orphanage located a couple miles from MEF. The elephants spend the days frolicking in a nearby river. In the afternoon they are driven up this road to the jungle area where they spend the nights.

Look early on in the video at the very right of the picture. There is an elephant missing part of his right front leg. I first saw it three years ago. The story is it stepped on a land mine laid in the Sri Lankan civil war. Don't know which side laid it. Doesn't matter.
