Perhaps Not Texas Toad

Our ADORABLE bufos are back; every summer they bless us; great caution needed walking around at night! dogs or cats who try to nibble them end up with hugely foamy mouths for about an hour! Ours do NOT harm our animals; they foam for awhile but always are fine after that, and they NEVER bother the toads again!

Years ago, i was told these were Texas Toads, but now that i'm researching on the internet, i am thinking they are most likely a Woodhouse's Toad.....

We have a little ceramic toad on our water feature, and from time to time our toads like to visit....

Here is how big ours get.... they are SO adorable, and very chilly to the touch as are all amphibians.... so soft and funny, i really love them!

Check out this face!!!! No wonder it was easy for the princess to kiss the frog!!!

The Lesson From The 4 Worms

What a fun story!!!!! Been around awhile, but probably worth telling again!!

Four Worms and a lesson to be learned:

A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon.

Four worms were placed into four separate jars.

The first worm was put into a container of alcohol. The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke. The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup. The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil.

At the conclusion of the sermon, the Minister reported the following results:

The first worm in alcohol -Dead.

The second worm in cigarette smoke - Dead

Third worm in chocolate syrup -Dead

Fourth worm in good clean soil -Alive.

So the Minister asked the congregation -What did you learn from this demonstration?

Maxine was sitting in the back, quickly raised her hand and said,

'As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won't have worms!'

That pretty much ended the service!

Trying Something New!

I must admit, i'm am totally enjoying Facebook! I think of it as a big campfire, where good friends gather 'round to share stories and life, to pray for one another, to learn and just plain enjoy! And where lots of NEW friends show up to be blessed too!

BUT the time spent there, along with other internet business obligations, has kept me from blogging here daily, something i have really wanted to do... maybe i can transfer my Facebook info over here, i'll give it a try!!

BLESSINGS on your day!!!!! annie
