The Frog Croaked

No, he didn’t die.

He learned how to make noise.


BTW, this is not at all what the frog looks like, it’s just a cool picture.

Our little class frog, who isn’t so little anymore, now makes a cricket-like sound in the early evening. He does it from under water and the bowl he lives in vibrates a little bit. I assume he’s calling a mate and now I fear there will be a bevy of amphibious beauties lined up outside my den window looking for Mr. Right.

I guess he’s taken his name [Jiminy] to heart. My son’s interpretation of this is that he is getting ready to have babies. I don’t know whether to be pleased or frightened that at age 8, he still doesn’t get that males of the species don’t have the babies. He wanted our dog [a neutered male, btw] to have puppies. I told him it would be easier for Mommy to have a cow.

Anyway, whatever Jiminy is up to, I’m keeping a close eye on him. At six months old, he’s way too young to date, but I’d be willing to let him elope if the right gal came along.

In Other News

Last night I finished the first draft of Rogue Theta! I never thought I'd get it done. Of course it still needs work, but at least I've got a completed product to work with now. As usual, once I finish one thing my mind jumps ahead three steps. Should I write a couple of short stories just to practice my craft and have some fun now, or should I get to work on those proposals I wanted to have ready of the full length novels I want to write? Should I move right into the sequel so I have it ready just in case there's the oportunity for a two-book deal? Or should I get to the sequels from my other titles like Wolfsbane and the Bonfire vampire series which still has two stories to tell? Arrgh!! So much to write, so little typing skills.

Oh, and one more person said, "I thought you were writing children's books..." I could just weep. I'm definitely buying the T-shirt - No, I DO NOT write children's books. I write 'BED' TIME stories. Ooohh - hey, that's not bad...

Isn't he cute? I've been trying to get a decent picture of the real frog but my camera doesn't take good closeups.
