Red Polka Dot Elephant

A red elephant with yellow polka dots stands next to the street in front of Tom's Needful Things. It brightens things up in this desert community.

[S Winston, 05/24/2016]

The elephant dates to the previous owner of the store, who unwisely had it painted gray like a real elephant. Its new color scheme is a significant improvement.
