Our guard frog is dead. Flat as a pancake.
Let me back up and explain. When mom first came to look at this house 7 years ago, she loved it. As she was leaving, she noticed a small but deep hole by the front door and looked in it and FREAKED OUT thinking there was a snake in there. Turns out it was a frog. Our guard frog. He hung out by the front door pretty much all summer.
Sometimes he would hang out with me in the back and just lay in my water bowl and keep me company. Okay, maybe it was a different frog, but I like to think it was the same guard frog. Same thing each summer. Out by the front door, out in the back in the water bowl.
Well, one day this week as the painters were leaving, mom noticed our guard frog... FLAT as a PANCAKE on the asphalt in front of our house! Who's gonna help me watch the back door now? Oh the HUMANITY!...
