Mowing Surprise!

Maybe you knew this already but I like to mow and I've had some strange things happen to me while cutting the grass. I've been chased by hornets and mowed over a few snakes, but I've never had someone or something ride on a push mower before. Tuesday morning while mowing, a frog jumped on the mower and stayed there for about 15 minutes while I made several different rounds. When I stopped to take a picture with my cell phone, I was almost sure he would jump off, but when I came back, he had moved over to the wheel. So I had to take a picture of Kermit and Millie. I'd like to say that Millie is good help mowing the yard, but she normally stretches out in the shade and watches me work. If she had some thumbs, I'm sure she would offer to run the trimmer and do the edging. At any rate, there seems to be a significant increase in the number of toads and frogs lately. Most of them look pretty healthy and I think it's because they are feeding on the significant number of mosquitoes that are annoying the heck out of us. Have a great week and beware of the mowing frogs and toads.

That's cute! I sure hope those snakes you've mowed over haven't been at my house!!! ;)

There is a frog in the picture Anon 8:09am. It is kinda hard to see, but if you look closely you can see it.

Never heard of that happening, but I am sure weirder things have happened before.
