Years ago when my son was younger
(he is 24 now) my friends mother
had a pond in her yard, and this
pond had tadpoles in it.
Cory wanted to watch a tadpole
turn to a frog.
Sounded like a great idea.....
We caught a few and a couple
did not make it but we had one
Our tadpole changed into a frog nicely.
But we figured we would let him get a bit bigger
and let him go in the creek that ran next to the house.
Now mind you we raised this critter in a glass
vase, you know the big ones that you put those
fighting fish in......first it had just water, then we
added a rock for him and he seemed to enjoy
He stayed on the kitchen cabinet but one day
while I was in a CLEANING mood, I decided that
he might want fresh air. So I put him in the shade on
the deck....only the sun moved.
When I went out, he had been cooked through
And this is about how he looked.......legs thrown to the side and belly up.
Thanks for stopping in,
