    No wonder I'm running out of chick food!!

    and the chick is having to eat a live shrew! This is a chick from end of July! I think the dog better hide in a few months! (The frog is about 1 1/2" and has lived in there for 2 months! I tried 6 times to take him out, but he's right back next day.)

    Wait, now I know why the frog is hiding in there!

    I love frogs. Keeps away those bugs too.
    Quilting is therapy. And I can use all the therapy I can get.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    We had a lot of tree frogs in our yard one time and then we got a cat that ate them like appetizers. My DH did everything he could to stop that cat, but no luck. That cat ate everything, once tried to bring a live snake into the house as a gift for me.

    We have lots of different sized frogs that come to our front porch every night. My other half works third shift and leaves a little bit after 9pm. It is like doing an obstacle course to get off the front porch without stepping on one! They don't bother me BUT I'm not too crazy about all the frog poop on the porch, railings and the siding surrounding the door!!!

    My mother had a HUGE toad that lived in her basement for years! She would go down the stairs(washer and dryer were down there), and call it, and it would come lumbering out! It was just hysterical! Scared a few repair men out their wits over the years..but he was kind of cute, in his huge, ugly way!

    It's just so much fun to interact with these little critters! The big frog was plugging a drain, so got moved to the neighbors pond. The little still guards the bag of chick feed - chicks would rather eat toatoes and mice anyway!
