The Wednesday that was

My Craft Girls 27.10.2010

Only missing 2 this week. You can imagine the noise we create when we’re all in full swing. But it intrigues the poor people trying to ring the office when there’s so much happy noise.  That and we’re all a bunch of dags.

Before we went to lunch that afternoon we were surprised to hear there was a green tree frog in ICA’s letter box.

This may seem gross to some, but I can remember days when it wasn’t uncommon to have a HUGE green frog come up to the back door and attach himself (or herself) to the glass to eat bugs. Or to have big froggie footprints on your phone bill, because they took up residence in your mailbox. Or your father’s friend moves the leaves in a big elephant fern to have one jump on your head. *giggle* ~ That was fine until it peed on my head ~

It has been at least 10 years since I’ve even so much as heard a frog croak in my backyard. Pollution doesn’t make for happy froggies.

I had a big squee when the letterbox was opened and the frog I have dubbed to be Fred-O-Frog peered out from the dark.


Isn’t he/she just spectacularly beautiful??
He peed all over his rescuer in a river of gratefulness before he could be placed within the foliage of a nearby tree.

Such a shame there aren’t more froggies around. I miss them.

    Yep, haven’t had our freddo on the kitchen windowsill this year yet – maybe a snake got him/her. Don’t miss the frog slobber on the window, though. Not bad, considering my kitchen is up 16 steps from ground level. Must be like climbing Everest when one gets there. Never seen an oxygen cylinder though. Don’t miss the one that lurked just under the rim in the downstairs toilet either. Bit of a surprise sometimes. Plenty of cane toads though.

    Reminds me of the advice I was once given about picking up a lost turtle – ALWAYS point the business end away from you.

    Lol @ Margaret and her turtles ‘business end’ .
    Been a while since I have seen a frog, let alone a big fat one like that. thats an awesome pic btw.
    Did you know that when picking up a frog, you should always wet your hands? they can be irritated by the skin acids on dry hands, wetting them tends to help minimise this.

    Nice pic of the group but not quite sure what Jac and Alison were doing!!!!LOL
    Fred-o-Frog came out great, what an excellent shot. Oh and to the comment above i can assure you that the rescuer did indeed wet her hands before she touch him and then several times after i imagine judging by the amount of pee he shot all over her.
