Right now, I Feel Like I'm Ten Years Old

Remember when you were a kid and you made your Dad a present for Father's day? Do you remember hoping that it would turn out okay, and that your Dad would like it? Remember the pains you took to do every step just right? And then, the exhilaration of success! That's how I feel tonight because I just made my Daddy a present.

As I was walking in the woods last week, I happened to have my camera with me just as I came across a frog. I was hoping to capture a shot of one in the the frog pond, so I could show Silvia, but this was even better! Look at the great shot I took:

I don't know where monsieur frog had been, but I'm certain he was heading back to his boggy home.


When I was a kid my Dad used to take us frog catching. It was a lot of fun for our whole family. So with Father's day coming up fast, I had a great idea for a gift. Using Photoshop, I made this image:


Which I then transfered onto a nice t-shirt to make this gift for my Frenchie dad:

I'm so excited! I hope he likes it.

BTW - I've identified this frog as an edible frog, which is exactly why we were catching them when I was a kid. They're very tasty, but I don't think I could eat one these days.

  7. You have such cute frogs there. I have mainly toats around here and they are naturally ugly and the little green tree frogs are cute, but sooo loud.

  9. What a great idea for a t and a gift. My Dad use to tell us about the days when he was growing up and he'd catch the bull frogs and his Mom would cook up the legs. I use to think, "Boy they must of been REALLY poor!" ;-)

  11. LOVE the phrog photo. I've been bemoaning the fact that there haven't been any frogs in these waters in several decades. Glad to see that there are still some true fresh waters around for them.
    VERY cool tee shirt.
