The Secret of Youth

It rained a lot over the weekend. Look what we found this morning in the pool:

SAM_0993 SAM_0992Karma came for a visit. Since her last visit a while ago, she’s lost weight and appears younger. I asked her what the secret was.

“First, every day you go into the water, submerge yourself, and stay completely submerged for 20 minutes”.

…. Umm, forget it.

  2. So that’s the secret. I’ll pass too.

    Have a fabulous day. 🙂

  3. She stopped by for a little dip and to wish you Happy Thanksgiving. Maybe just being active helps you stay young.

  4. Ah, maybe thats Karma’s daughter!

  5. Hmmmmmm submerged for 20 minutes, you’ve got to be kidding.

    Isn’t that a toad? We didn’t think toads got in water except to lay eggs. Are you expecting some toadlets sometime in the future?

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  6. I’d pass too. Karma must be pretty tough. I bet that water’s cold.

  7. It doesn’t rain frogs here, we only get rain when it rains.

    Aroo to you,

  8. KARMA!!!! We think about her every night in the summer when we hear all the frogs croaking in the distance. Yup, we’d definitely give her tips on eternal youth a skip (hop and a jump *BOL* – see what we did there!?) Kyla.

  9. Hmmm… Frogs… Don’t sound so wise…

  10. yes, that was my first thought too: forget it, water is a no-go :o)

  11. That’s very likely to work with frogs.
    Last Saturday I spent 30 minutes in the bathtub and my hands and feet looked like raisins.

  12. Um, yeah, they can keep their ‘secret’…I ain’t gettin’ in the water voluntarily!!

  13. Bummer for the critter! Got washed right out of the burrow! Any chance you could let him/her hibernate in the comfort of one of your closets? I mean, you already named him/her and all…
