   THURSDAY. MAY 13, 2021

            HOP TO IT!

    Well friends it's May 13th and the
bid day is finally here.
     This is Frog Jumping Day!
     What do you mean you've never
heard if it? It's always celebrated on
May 13th!
      Frog jumping can be traced
back to Mark Twain's first short
story "Jim Smiley and his Jumping
      There are places where they
have Frog jumping contests every
year on this date! And they can last
for hours.
       We almost had a frog for a pet
one time. My wife captured a
tadpole from an area street and
brought it home in a large glass
jar. She tells me it got to the next
stage of development but then it
croaked (not in terms of the sound
produced by frogs.)
         Too bad. We could either be
entering some jumping contests
today or enjoying Frog legs! I never

had a frog. As a kid I did have 2 turtles
that were sort of like frogs. They couldn't          
run or jump. But they both croaked!
         Hope you enjoy the holiday
and that all your NEWS is good!
