ELEPHANT SOLVES MYSTERY OF LEAKING POOL!

A mystery "leak" draining a jacuzzi in South Africa has been explained after tourists snapped Troublesome, the elephant (above), drinking from the pool.

Susan Potgieter, owner of the Etali Safari Lodge, South Africa, said: "When I first saw the photograph of her drinking I couldn't believe it. It was something of a relief because we had been trying to work out why the pool had been draining so quickly for weeks but couldn't find a leak anywhere".

Ever had an unexplained leak that’s baffled your plumber? Unexplained noises in the night? (I don’t mean snoring!) Unexplained sights in the sky? Anything that’s still left you puzzled? (Apart from, that is, why socks never come out of the wash in pairs!)
Do let me know!


Happy Six Word Saturday! Other great posts @ Show My Face.
Mwah!
XOXO LOLA:)

My bro in Australia thought he had a possum in his attic. After reading my blog, he told me that was no possum, but a pack of rats. Yukkk!!!
