“FROGGY” is back ! !
On July 24th of last year I wrote a blog about my little gray tree frog who had taken up residence in a “for decoration only” bird house attached to the side of my home. He first showed up in August of 2004 when I had come home after undergoing a serious surgery. I dubbed him as my door greeter and protector.
Every year since then he has returned, but has stayed for shorter and shorter visits. I thought I had lost him completely until just a few weeks ago when he appeared once again. What seems to be different this time is that he is almost constantly on view. I guess he must hunt for food at night but the rest of the time he pokes his little head out of the bird house hole and keeps me company.
Today I decided to try out my new dulcimer playing skills and to get his reaction. He didn’t seem to be very impressed but, by the same token, he didn’t cover his ears so I guess I’ll take that as a positive sign. It’s really kind of nice to have an attentive audience that has nothing to say !
Now to the serious part…do I or do I not try to kiss this little guy and see if he’s a Prince Charming in disguise? I’ve missed my good traveling companion, Douglas, and, if Froggy is really a knight in shining armor we could traipse the world together.
But what if I kiss him and find that “he” is actually a “she” … or that nothing happens and he remains simply “Froggy” ? I guess I’d better leave well enough alone …
but it sure is tempting.
