Froggie

On our front porch, there's a bougainvillea in a hanging basket. It's about five-and-a-half feet off the ground. This morning I glanced at the little watering spout on the bottom of the basket and saw this frog peering back at me. How he got in there, I'll never know.

  1. 5.5' not too much for a frog.

    You remind me of the time in Hawaii when our grouchy tomcat, who liked to eat outside, started mewing up a storm. I step out into the carport to see that a toad at least half as big as Ka'ime the cat himself has perched on the food pile in the dish, good fly-bait I'm sure. Ka'ime had no good idea how to move the toad, and it took me a minute or two to get it out of the dish without dumping all the contents.

  6. "I use to be big. I hoped for a comeback as a spokesfrog for Geiko, but they chose that damn gecko with the accent. What's up with that? I mean that whole Australian thing lasted as long as Paul Hogan's popularity. Now I'm a nobody. I have my flies with cheap vodka. I crash where I can. Mostly the gutter. Occasionally in a flowerpot when I can find one. I should have listened to Durante. "Be awfully nice to them going up, because you're gonna meet them all coming down." - Michigan J. Frog
