All About Frogs for a Fun Friday
Jim and I and another couple were sitting around talking about frogs (no idea why on that one at all!) one day and we (THEY) decided that we'd go get some frog legs and cook them up that night. Of course the best time according to Jim to get the frogs was at night when they all came out to do their croaking or whatever they like to do. We found a good pond behind some friends house and all four of us piled in a boat. It's pitch dark and the guys are happily paddling along and all I can think about are the creepy crawly's out and about and probably getting in the boat with me - and my pants! And snakes....YIKES! But, I'm a good sport so never say a word. So we're peacefully paddling along ....and then KA-BOOM! The entire boat shakes, the guys start paddling like mad and all I see is this big "A" bull frog sinking.......Uck! They got to it before it went under and threw it in the boat. Double Uck! The "hunt"ended after we had about 15 frogs - lots of legs - in the boat with us.......... Don't even ask what my thought was on that! They cooked them up that night and I just couldn't eat one. All I could think of was that poor bull frog croaking his little heart out and then the KA-BOOM! I did end up trying frog legs a year or so later - from a restaurant - and they weren't too bad. Sorta tasted like chicken???
Thank heavens these cute little guys won't end up on someones plate!
I'll enter this in the challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More (Clean and Simple).
Have a good weekend and stay safe and healthy - and SMILE!
