My SON saves Michael's Frog.

So I'm cycling along in the dark up towards Fairoaks Airport from Chobham when in the beam of the new lamp I see something right in my path which I'm able to avoid. It was a frog, so my SON saved a frog. Oddly this reminded me of the new release on DVD of “Ripping Yarns” the excellent TV series by Michael Palin and Terry Jones, which includes the fabulous “Over the Andes by Frog”, I kind of for taste of where Michael Palin was going to go in the future. I'm really pleased about the release as for once I have not actually seen all the programs, but the ones I have seen were hilarious.

Then when I get home I get to see the new shed that has just arrived, which makes me Chris “Two Sheds” Gerhard, not quite the same as Arther “Two Sheds” Jackson, but featuring once again Terry Jones. Today must just be a Terry Jones day.

Comments:

Actually Chris's comments remind me of a walk wedid a year ago. We crossed a bridge that went over a small stream. The area was clearly very suitable for frogs. Damp and loads of places to hide. But frogs being frogs decided that the road that went over the bridge was a better place to be. Except they must have spent too long crossing it. As we approached the bridge the road started to be splattered with crushed frog bodies. As we neared the centre of the bridge the tarmac was almost hidden by flattened carcases.

Clearly cars unlike Chris did not heed the frog warning triangle and wizzed over the bridge. Hundreds of frogs must be killed on that bridge weekly. A most depressing sight.
