Froggy Froggy Birthday

Today, August 3rd is Roger's 69th birthday. That's right, after today, we can say he's"pushing 70." And in Roger's case, "pushing" is an active verb. He's still as wild and crazy as he's always been. Maybe a bit slowed down given the year he's had, but even with all of that, he's practically unstoppable. We haven't even shown you the photos of the woodshed he and a wonderful guy named "Guy" built last week. We needed that woodshed so we'd have a place where we could threaten to take each other for the whopping we both need on a very regular basis. Roger is going to do a post on that woodshed and the garden, or he's going to woodshed. Those are his choices! That's a promise.

But in the meantime, here's a photo of the little froggy I found in the greenhouse Tuesday morning. I went out early to water the last few tomatoes and basil we still have in six-packs, when something very froggy moved away from the water. It's been hanging out in the six--pack all day. If it stays one more day, we'll have to name him!

Happy birthday, Roger.

  2. Happy Birthday Roger. Enjoy those sixties. You are still a puppy to me. Looking forward to your woodshed post.
    Think that frog polished off two of that six pack. No wonder the odd look he is giving you.

  7. Well, tell him happy birthday. I just realized he was not a facebook friend, so I have now "friended" him. (We need all the friends we can get as we get older.) I pushed 70 last year and I have to say it doesn't feel any different this year now that push has come to "WTF, I'm HOW old?"

  8. Silly me, I thought from the title you already named him "Froggy." Happy birthday Roger. May the coming year be the best ever.

  10. Happy Birthday to your wonderful husband. He is WAY more robust than I am, and I'm a mere pup. Maybe I should be taken to the woodshed....

    hehe

    i think you should name the frog Fred.

    looking forward to the woodshed post. can't imagine either of you doing a lot of "whopping," though.

  12. It's true, we never whop each other. But having the woodshed provides the perfect opportunity to say, "I'm afraid I'm going to have to take you out to the woodshed for that." Always good for a laugh around here. We're old enough to remember David Stockman!

  14. Happy Birthday, non-codger Roger!
    I hope you continue to enjoy the day and days ahead!
    PS I understand finding a frog in your garden on your birthday means a long summer.....
    PPS I vote for Froger for the name, too funny.
