We found a Whopper or I should say a Hopper!!!
It’s so funny to me. Every time we find a frog, the chorus to a song I learned in2nd or 3rd grade pops into my head. The only part to that song I can remember is this one line…..
“ Way down south in the yankety-yank, a bull frog jumped from bank to bank, just because he’d nothing better for to do! He stubbed his toe and fell in the water; you could hear him yell for a mile and a quarter, just because he’d nothing better for to do.”
We found another frog…..not just any frog. A HUGE frog!!! I thought at first that it was snake. It was buried in a pile of leaves under the fence next to a cinder block. We had to put cinder blocks there in order to “Zeus” proof the fence. There were some saplings that had taken root so the kids and I removed them. That froggie had a wonderful eating spot. There were crickets galore hopping around and a few other bugs I didn’t know.
The way his leg was curled up under him, he looked like a snake who had just had his morning meal. The kids and I all got down on the ground to get a closer look and I was corrected by the boys. I was told that was a frog. In my disbelief….I poked and prodded some more until frog decided to hop out of his hole, which of course sent everyone scrambling to catch him.
Which we did…….:)
Charlie said…”Hey Mom, see the family resemblance!!”
That was our frog…..We let him go after Daddy got to see him…..He was missing one foot though.
