Brown Toad

Ernie dug up a huge brown toad while digging alongside the stream. I don't know who was more surprised - Ernie or the Toad!

Since the dam on the pond broke the water has drained quite a lot and is now standing still. We have a colony of about a million Pollywogs...future frogs if you will.

Reminds me of an old story where a young boy fell into a Pollywog Pond. He panicked and couldn't get out fast enough. His big sister stood on the shore of the pond screaming for help. When his mom rescued him from the pond he was wet and crying. Seemed the Pollywogs found their way into his trousers and underneath his shirt. It took several squigly minutes before mom was able to release all of the little frogs from the boys person. He was never the same again. He learned it was best to stay away from ponds full of Pollywogs unless you were wearing shoes with very good traction...Remember, Bryan?
