Frog Song from Liam Lynch's podcast
I thought that was cute since we have been using the frog metaphor. As for the frog pond... it has grown by one more. I know I am supposed to be eliminating and making this easier. But this one is really a great frog so far. Maybe one worth gigging as a keeper. (I know... how can you tell in just one day?) The fact is I don't know much of anything other than these people can type. Well... there are some funny typos. But you know what I mean. It is difficult to tell much when you are looking at words. I have to tell you when I heard one of the frog's croaks... it reduced my interest. He has an odd voice and a worse laugh. I've talked to three. I like rich silky voices... like Suldog's if you've ever listened to his recordings. Think captain Pickard or Sean Connery if you haven't.
But here's the new frog's qualifications... he's into Sci Fi reading as well as movies and tv, into his kids and his grand kids, funny, works with his hands for fun ( has a wood shop) so he's creative, he likes to donate his time to helping others, we've read the same books and authors, he is not particular about traditional gender roles (not Mr. Most-Macho-You-Do-What- I- Tell-You) and he picked the right name out of the hat. You don't understand that last one, but I do. Conversation has been fun and I am looking forward to more. He even offered to teach me how to do something I have always wanted to learn to do... and to do it well. Very cool beans!
Some of you have come up with some fun terms for the frog pond. Here is the glossary.
"Frogpault" for ejecting reject toads. (Thanks to Cube)
"Bull Frogs" who are just giving you a line. (Thanks to dmarks)
"Poison Arrow Frogs" who have toxic personalities! (Thanks to dmarks)
"Bud Wisers" Frogs who just hang in the pond and drink beers all day long. (Thanks to Peggy)
who also gave the line "They should shut their ribbits!" hahahaha
"Croakers" Frogs close to being in line for the Frogpault.
"Toads" Frogs getting/ or already Frogpaulted.
So far we have a couple of Croakers.... seen here in red
Our frogs are: M, D, C, R, D-2 and R-2... the greenest frog right now.
On an unrelated note. Dmarks had a post yesterday that was fantastically fun for me in a very personal way yesterday. If you didn't see it... it's about my friend Patrick Sean O'Neil. The friend that I was googling the day I found my way to dmarks's blog and to the blog world... which has, as I've said, greatly expanded and improved my life. Check it out.

Very, very cool beans dmarks!
Have a wonderful day. I promise my posts won't all be about frogs. I don't want to bore you all to death. Yikes! But I'll mention them for sure.
