It’s Raining Frogs

IMG 0777

I swear, every time it rains, it rains frogs. I can't figure where else they are all coming from if not the sky right along with the rain. We've gotten a lot of rain over the past two days and this morning we pulled back the solar cover on the pool to reveal more frogs. Eleven, in fact.

We decided to do as Carolyn suggested and put them in a bucket. Rick is the official frog-fisher-outer since they tend to gather in the bottom of the deep end. It's a good thing our net has a nice extension pole on it.

Bella was intrigued by the whole thing.

She kept sticking her head in the bucket. Before I knew it, she had grabbed one in her mouth and spit it out on the deck. He seemed to be okay and I just picked him up and put him back in the bucket with his buddies. I don't know if it was the movement that intrigued her or she just likes frogs. It was hard to keep her head out the bucket and I kept a close eye on her to make sure she didn't try to eat another one.

One got away as I was trying to extricate it from the net and hopped off. He'll probably be back tomorrow. Or the next time it rains.

Rick took the bucket-o-froggies and walked their little green butts down to the creek and dumped them in. If the same thing happens the next time it rains you are not going to convince me that they aren't coming from the sky.

It’s not easy being green!  grin  Will be there to help soon, but unfortunately I don’t think it’s supposed to rain the whole time I’m there.

C, no! are you looking at the wrong weather forecast?? It’s supposed to be really nice this weekend with no rain predicted. ?

Oops, my bad. Yes, no rain. Therefore no frog rescue. Sorry.

Have you seen the movie “Magnolia”? There’s a famous scene involving frogs raining from the sky. smile

Bella, please don’t eat the frogs.  Lucy got a toad several years ago and it wasn’t pretty.  She foamed at the mouth and was sick all day—and she only had it in her mouth, she didn’t eat it!!! I don’t know if frogs do this or just toads. Yuck!

Steve, no I haven’t seen that movie! I should check it out.

Bigsis, I think toads are different than frogs in that respect. She didn’t have any ill effects from having it in her mouth. I think she spit it out because it was wriggling around.  smile
