I’ve got a green frog in my fish pond, and I’m kind of concerned for him. It’s far too cold for him to be out of the water and moving around, and he’s taken up in my pond since there’s a heater and it’s toasty warm. He should be hunkered down in some thick pond muck somewhere, and my pond is so new, there isn’t even a smidgen of anything between him and the plastic.
This is going to be an interesting winter as I keep an eye on him. Is he going to winter in the Harrison Frog Spa successfully till spring? If it keeps him warm enough, will he be so active that he doesn’t have the resources to keep from starving? I wish I knew what to do with him, but seriously, I’m not sure where he came from to begin with.
I’ll be taking the rest of the week off from the Drama Box because of the holidays, but I’ll probably be shunning the big stores on Friday for my desk . . . although I will be going downtown for a cup of coffee and to shop local. I’ve been down there more than a few times now, and I’m amazed at the quality of the stuff I found. I like the idea of commerce so close I can walk to it. Not a bad option compared to driving, parking, and worrying about leaving stuff in my car. Besides, I’m starting to recognize people, and that’s kind of cool. It gives a fantastic sense of both responsibility and unity, of belonging to something larger.
Happy Thanksgiving, guys!
