FROGLEGS

I was working upstairs yesterday morning when Echo called me from the deck to come look. Sounded interesting.

When I got down to the deck door, by way of intro she told me that she had been just about to get her leg warmers off the laundry pole when she found that one of them was being used.

A savvy neighborhood frog had had the same idea regarding use of the garment during the chill of the night and early morning, and had co-opted use of the leg warmer by backing neatly into it under the big old clothespin. Snug as a frog, and no hovering hawk would ever spot him there. He was safe and the froglegs were toasty. He had a happy warm face on him, too-- bit of a pleasant frogchuckle hovered there somewhere.

He was so contented, in fact, that he wouldn't move no matter how paparazzi my camera got. He knew a good thing when he'd found one. Echo has to use another pair until Froggo has finished using this one, which may be a while; the green dude's pretty stylish looking in that leg warmer. This may get to be a frogleg fad...

As you may have seen from my prior post we have frogs now trying to join us watching TV. They are getting very humanized it appears...wearing our clothes, watchng out programs.
