Ruth, can't stop laughing over "sucking face. I wonder if there are mucous membranes at the end of a trunk? OK, I'm on the hunt. 

Q. Do elephants have mucous membranes at the end of a trunk?

A. "If you'd ever been touched by an elephant's trunk, you wouldn't need to ask that question! They certainly do have mucous membranes in their trunks, and copious amounts of mucus which gets all over anything they pick up or touch. Trust me, I know from personal experience!"

Ruth, the air and water in some places makes one want to jump back in the water and become slime. Our air quality here is fine, except when we have a weather inversion. Having the river flow through town helps to set up an air current to take it out.
