Frog Needs a New Pad

“Ribbit” croaks the frog his lily pad is sinking… time to hop along larger lily pad makes a summer home for frogs… until the storms come *Entry for Sidney Lee Ann’s “Lily-Pads and Frogs” contest By Carolyn Devonshire Theme: both lily pads and frogs

Smiles as I read this, especially since I also think of it as a new pad (as in apartment) crazy me-- and it sure seems more fun to have more frogs in one pad-- a concert if you will ;D Enjoyed this one Carolyn-- how did your trip go? I hope you caught some big fish!! And I hope all is well with you! Hugs to you ;D

Hi Carolyn...Gee whiz. I had no idea what was going on with your health...it sounded like neuropathy of some sort, but autonomic in nature?...Gads! I will be keeping you in my routine prayers...only positive thoughts and focusing on living....Yep, it looks as tho this frog needs a new home!...hee hee...it is adorable! These haiku contests have been entertaining lately-to say the least...Love and prayers, Gwendolen
