Way back at Christmastime I mentioned that I had been given a kit to raise aquatic frogs, with a number to call for delivery, and I put out an open call for names. I don’t know if you remember. Well, anyway. The frogs are here, finally, and they have names! May I introduce to you –– sans photos, as I am afraid flash photography will permanently blind their minuscule eyes and I haven’t used my phone camera enough times to know how to de-flash yet –– Sir Humphrey Montgomery and Lady Esmeralda. (Emma and Emma, for short.)
They are identically greenish-brown, their torsos are about the length of my thumbnail, and they are clearly, definitively petrified by me.
