I promised Judy I would post my frog collection sometime, well
here they are.
They are a little more "blokey" than Judy's and I guess that is to
By The Way; I learnt a neat trick this weekend, if you are at a
blogsite where the typeset is small and hard for you to read,
go to "View" on your toolbar, select text size, and increase.
This will make it easier to read and works on any page on the
web as well as blogs, (Yeah, I was probably the only one who
didn't know this already!!!!!) Ctrl+ also works the same magic.
This little guy just hangs about on the little planter that I've never
got around to planting anything in, but he seems very patient.
These guys are the comics of the squad, they like to sit around with
their comical expressions and poses, happy little fellows aren't they.
The trio of good guys who"Speak no evil, See no evil, Hear no evil"are cuter
than the monkeys who are usually entrusted with these tasks.
This one is my "Watch Frog" his job is to croak a warning if any
intruders threaten my castle, problem is he became too good at
his job and an insect or even a shadow crossing his line of sight
became enough to send him into a frenzy.
He has since had surgery to remove the battery which used to
make him misbehave so, if you look closely you will notice the
remnants of a wasp nest in his mouth where his sensor lived so
maybe the surgery wasn't needed?
These Cool Stools with their current sitee's reminded me of a
good story I heard recently.
Sitting by the window of her convent, Sister Barbara opened a
letter from home one evening.
Inside the letter was a $100 bill her parents had sent.
Sister Barbara smiled at the gesture.
As she read the letter by the window, she noticed a shabbily
dressed stranger leaning against the lamp post below.
Quickly, she wrote, "Don't despair. Sister Barbara," on a piece of
paper, wrapped the $100 bill in it, got the man's attention and
tossed it out the window to him.
The stranger picked it up, and with a puzzled expression and a
tip of his hat, went off down the street.
The next day, Sister Barbara was told that a man was at her door,
insisting on seeing her.
She went down, and found the stranger waiting.
Without a word, he handed her a huge wad of $100 bills.
"What's this?" she asked.
"That's the $8,000 you have coming Sister," he replied.
"Don't Despair won and paid 80 to 1"
