Love it! If I found myself in a boot with a huge foot, my eyes would pop too!

Haha – that’s right Stafford.

The rhythm is exactly like a frog’s ribbit ribbit. He does look surprised!

I didn’t think about that, but you are right Selma – the rhythm of a green tree frog 🙂

Ps. the frog is an Ornate Burrowing frog (looks a little like a toad, but isn’t) but I could be wrong – please tell me if it’s something else 🙂

Whose eyes would be popping more?! Never had a frog in the boot but in Johannesburg, where I lived for 12 years, Parktown Prawns (King Crickets) in the Boot are legendary (and very smelly!)

Haha Parktown Prawns – what a name! I think I will have to start covering up my boots to keep the critters out – there are worse things than frogs bluebee 🙂

So many frogs…where is that pond of your? 🙂
January 8, 2011 at 9:20 am
The frog pond is about 3 metres from the back of the house (where our bedroom is, unfortunately).

bwahahahaha – aloha Gabrielle – i’m not sure who’s eyes would pop more, the frog or the one placing foot in boot. bwahahahahaa. fun. this almost feels like Basho is prodding you (Basho’s frog/pond haiku – the sound of water) – he must be laughing for sure. fun. aloha
January 8, 2011 at 9:23 am
I didn’t think of Basho when writing but maybe he is giving me a prod – haha – I am enjoying these little poems Rick 🙂 especially when Ben does a wonderful illustration to match.

aloha Gabrielle – yeah, Benedicte’s inspiration was way cool. when i saw the photos from the post before these two poem posts i was tempted too. there are some cool frogs here too, and there are some that are so loud… yikes. they are cool creatures tho. fun. aloha.

You should do some froggy pictures Rick – that would be great 🙂 they are cool creatures.

I can’t say I’ve ever had a frog in my boot but I have had a dead rat and mouse in my shoe! It’s the squishy feeling that gets you and most especially in the morning before some coffee. *shudder*
January 9, 2011 at 11:09 am
YUKKKKK!!!!!! It is definitely the squishy feeling that gets to you (and before coffee – well that is just horrific Val – hahahahaha).
