Lately, I feel like I'm Alice in Wonderland. Things around me seem to be unusually large. As we pulled in the driveway tonight, I saw what seemed like a huge pine cone. I got out of the car and started to walk toward it. It moved. I stopped. I ever so slowly, and very cautiously inched toward it again. It moved. My heart began to pound. I felt short of breath, and began sweating. The curiosity was too much for me to stop now. What was this mystery animal??? You can never be sure what kind of wildlife you will encounter around here, so I knew I had to arm myself. With a bad mitten racket in hand, I began my pursuit once more. This time, the creature moved TOWARD me! I yelled for back-up. Joel came running to my side. "What is it?" he asked. "I don't know, but it's very, very large," I breathlessly answered. We couldn't see a thing in the darkness of the night. Joel took the bad mitten out of my hand, and managed to get this large thing into the spotlight.
This is what it was....
ISN'T HE THE SICKEST THING EVER?????!!!! GAG! and he's so big, too!!!!!!!! I think I prefer the dead squirrell over this! My toes are curling as I type this. Looks like he just finished a little winged snack. Apparently, Mamma Toad forgot to wipe his mouth before he left home. Do you know how freakishly close I had to get to him to take this picture....and all because I wanted to show you guys. I hope you're appreciative. I can't tell you how many times my husband has come up behind me and said, "Ribbit" and I've hit the ceiling! Oh, the sacrifices I make to bring you the news around here.
And Mr. Toad wasn't the only thing that has been supersized. Get a load of the mushroom Matt found this week!!!
What's happening around here? I'm afraid what will be next!!
