Kermit the Frog

Can you spot my little buddy? No? Look closer. Still closer. Try going to the magnification mode.

Yep, there he is. A little tree frog sitting on a leaf just as happy as frogs can be. I spotted him just by luck while in the front yard. He is in the gardenia bush. Hopefully he will eat lots of mosquitoes and anything else that bugs me. Sorry, I just couldn’t resist the pun. When I worked at the hospital in Phoenix, I had a coworker, Anne, who just loved to make puns and as a consequence I got a steady stream of verbal puns with each followed by a laugh from her and a laugh from me also. She was very nice and had a really kind heart. The hospital was a Catholic hospital and all of the people there were very dedicated and caring. How else can you be when you are working alongside the nuns. Their order was the Sisters of Mercy. I use to do volunteer work for the Little Sisters of the Poor in Phoenix. They operated a nursing home. It was very rewarding spiritually to work with the nuns. It was also an honor. The same was true at the hospital and so we only had good, kind, gentle people there. We had a radiologist there, Dr. Matheson, and he told me once to treat every patient as if they were either my mother or father or brother or sister. I took his advice to heart and applied it on a daily basis. It was a sad day when I left for another job with the State of Arizona government. But the state job with Arizona was an adventure and incredibly fun. I got to travel all over the state of Arizona. What fun. Everyone have a nice day and lots of fun. Time to do my on-line jigsaw puzzle. Lew

I might see a few tree frogs when I go visit my sister. They love her pool area. They also seem to latch on her kitchen window.
