Day 142 — Ah, exactly one month away from the official start of summer!
Today, working out in the garden I came across a toad. I picked him up to move him out of harm’s way when I suddenly remembered my grandkids and our frogging foray. So, I went and got a little container and put the toad in it. I then drove over to the kids’ house and surprised them. All three of them were amazed by the little critter. I had them put on my gardening gloves to handle it (so that they didn’t hurt it more than necessary). They each took turns holding it and, of course, asked to keep it. No, both me and their mother said, it wouldn’t live, we have to let it go. The hunt for a suitable place to let it go began. Finally, we let it go in the flower garden. I’m sure the three of them will go out there tomorrow expecting to find the toad living in their garden.
I’m so glad they live close enough for me to do stuff like this.
