Frog Man

"Mama," my nine-year-old son said.  "Did you know we're closely related to amphibians?"

I looked at that boy funny.  "What do you mean, Bubba?  Amphibians are cold-blooded animals, and humans are warm-blooded."

"Humans and frogs can both hang out in water and on land."

"But what about the warm-blooded, cold-blooded thing?" I asked.

He thought about that a second.  "Well, frogs are cold-blooded and they croak.  When humans become cold-blooded, they croak."

Brilliant!

  6. I am not too keen on frogs. We had a fishpond when my husband was alive , After he passed away I decided to change the fish pond into flowers so began the log process of clearing the water out. There was ninety two frogs in that pond......got the next door nieghbour to finish the job.

    1. You counted the frogs! Wow! My son would've liked removing the frogs for you. (And they probably would've ended up at my house!)
