This Frog is not a Prince

It started with an innocent request.  Dear Santa “all I want for Christmas is a FROG”.  Who knew there would be a “perfect pet” called a Pac-man frog.  Who names them this?  Allegedly it “looks” like the pac-man game many of us grew up playing.  Does it come with ghosts that he has to gobble up?  No – it comes with crickets which is where the “problem” begins……

Conrad eats crickets. Not just any crickets.  They need to be FAT crickets.  Which is where the problem leads to…… Conrad was eating skinny crickets and wasn’t getting enough nutrients.  He started straining when he tried to poop causing him to have a prolapsed rectum.  Who would have guessed the cure would be a sugar bath?  Then Mr. Pac-man frog squeezed even harder next time & squirted out his intestines.  I’ll give you a second to visualize frog intestines outside a frog body while frog is still alive.

Let’s rush this $30 frog to the ER Vet for a bargain $200 surgery to fix the intestinal quandary. (Instead of going to the pet store & buying a handful more).

The intestines outside the body, ER VET said, was caused by Conrad eating skinny crickets.  Now the crickets have to get fed to fatten them up before feeding them to Conrad.   Feed Crickets, Feed Conrad.  Fine dining for the frog!

LILAC GIRLS by Martha Hall Kelly

Just finished reading this book & really enjoyed it. Below is the synopsis:

Inspired by the life of a real World War II heroine, this debut novel reveals

a story of love, redemption, and secrets that were hidden for decades.

New York socialite Caroline Ferriday has her hands full with her post

at the French consulate and a new love on the horizon. But Caroline’s

 world is forever changed when Hitler’s army invades Poland in

September 1939—and then sets its sights on France.

An ocean away from Caroline, Kasia Kuzmerick, a Polish teenager, s

enses her carefree youth disappearing as she is drawn deeper into her role

as courier for the underground resistance movement. In a tense atmosphere

 of watchful eyes and suspecting neighbors, one false move can have

dire consequences.

For the ambitious young German doctor, Herta Oberheuser, an ad

for a government medical position seems her ticket out of a desolate life.

Once hired, though, she finds herself trapped in a male-dominated

 realm of Nazi secrets and power.

The lives of these three women are set on a collision course when

the unthinkable happens and Kasia is sent to Ravensbrück, the notorious

Nazi concentration camp for women. Their stories cross continents—

from New York to Paris, Germany, and Poland—as Caroline and Kasia

strive to bring justice to those whom history has forgotten.

What’s the best thing….
