Our Christmas Card to you

A lot of Christmas cards and gifts are speeding around the world from and for bloggers. He thought that was wonderful and asked me if I wanted to do a gift exchange and to whom I wanted to send Christmas cards. It didn’t take me long to say “no” to both gifts and cards.  “Why […]

What a “holiday”?

To start off, when driving, He hits every red light. The traffic signal sees Him coming and immediately turns yellow then red when He’s there and He has to wait for the whole cycle. He told me that the reason He moved to the country was that there are none of those infernal traffic lights. […]

It’s MY day!

It’s the best day of the year. I can eat all I want (as long as nobody’s looking) and not get yelled at for doing it. I’ve got a lot of things to be thankful for, most rescues do. So I’m going to complain.  Yup, it’s time to let it all hang out. Two of […]

Fashion Show

First of all TOAD UPDATE: The name chosen was Kharma-it starts with a “K” and She likes that plus Kharma and Kismet go together. Doggy-good suggestion and were many of the others but a small toad only gets one name. It rained and we haven’t seen Kharma for a few days, maybe she left for dustier pastures. […]

It seems we’ve been rescued

For the third time, the frog returned. It is probably a Couch’s Spadefoot toad and a female at that because the markings are different for the genders. For the third time, we’ve taken her out of the pool with the nasty chemicals and put her into the bird bath where the drip system gives her […]
