Perhaps he/she has been waiting for us to provide a suitably camouflaging and photogenic plant for his lounging pleasure.
What a nice addition to the alley wildlife.
It is possible he/she may be the little guy who hitched a ride in the next door neighbors' car trunk from a nearby lake to the West Hill a few weeks ago?
Perhaps she/he has now had enough of city life and is patiently watching from this perfect vantage point for an opportunity to hop into another open trunk and be homeward bound.
Fun Frog Fact:
The gray tree frog freezes in the winter! It produces large amounts of glycerol. The glycerol is changed to glucose, and then it is circulated through the frog's cells. The glucose acts like a kind of antifreeze and prevents ice crystals from forming in the frog's cells. If ice crystals formed in the cells, they would rip the cells apart and kill the frog. The rest of the water and blood in the frog's body then freezes, and its heartbeat and breathing stop! When the temperature warms up, the tree frog "thaws out" and returns to the trees! - nhptv
A few of our favorite things from the curated cabin tchotchke collection.
Never can have too many souvenirs of your own state. Big fish!
From the mushroom decade. 1970s! Hull dripware fungus S or P needs S or P mate.
Frankoma made for the Oklahoma Golden Jubilee 1957.
Who doesn't need a drink from a Cup O' Kindness every now and then?
We always pat down departing company and check their suitcases for this little gem that is the envy of many who have stayed in the vacation kitsch guestroom.
Depending on the week or day you could score your own online without resorting to the old five-finger discount..
Ah yes, the grease canister. We have the entire set, but the coffee one is the most used and practical favorite followed by the grease pot as favorite in the curiosity factor category.
Don't tell, but it is a very good place to hide things. No one suspects M and Ms to be in it and they are too afraid of finding old bacon fat to look.
Last, the vintage dish towel. Soft, absorbent, colorful, corny. Can't get enough of them. Products featured here: Frisco, Suz, 67 Sauce, and several with iconic label images or design, all cleverly avoiding copyright infringement. Perhaps the nascence of the knock-off phenomenon?
One of these days we will actually move into this century with our decor, but the order of business at the cabin is lolling around, and even if change is going to happen, considering the pace of lake life, don't be holding your breath unless it is because you are doing a cannonball off the dock.
reminded us of the one who freezes snowballs in January to throw with her Southern grandsons in July.
"The aging process has you firmly in its grasp if you never get the urge to throw a snowball."
- Doug Larson
Once she helped us collect Zamboni shavings from behind the hockey arena for a fellow summer birthday child who didn't understand why he couldn't have a snowball fight as an activity for his June party.
Yup, she's been in the business of making kids' dreams come true for four decades, and counting.
Here's hoping she has a chance to relax and enjoy her special day, which promises to be a beautiful Wisconsin one,
but with the grand energy level currently at an all-time high she may just have to hold on for the ride for now and collapse later.
