At my synagogue's retreat in the Poconos last weekend, one of the kids spotted a toad at the edge of the small man-made pond shown in the last of these photos. He was kind enough to let me get quite close with my macro.......

For anyone who would like a good laugh, listen to this story from a few years ago on All Things Considered on National Public Radio. One of the funniest things I have ever heard on the radio. What we call a "driveway moment."

And, thanks for your votes on the various photos in my sailing series.

There is a toad who lives outside my back door-- It is a wonder the cats do not bother him--perhaps because he is just about a ugly as this one!

I hope that you were more comfortable than Angi Wallace was shooting frongs in her garden a few months ago... A fine result!

And I'm now exploring, for the first time, the delights of NPR (here in the UK, it's quite hard to get beyond the BBC, who offer so much!)

So, thank you, for giving me a completely new experience.
