Evicted

Today’s post is written by a guest author, Freddy.

I gotta tell you, I was living the good life there for a while. I had a roof over my head, a nice swimming pool, and plenty of peace and quiet. I had no rent and no worries.

All that came abruptly to an end today. All of a sudden it got blindingly bright. I was awake in an instant. I was out in the sunlight. It was hot and scary. ACKKKKK!

I was hanging on for dear life, when all of a sudden something BIG started chasing me around the pool. I managed to climb on to the ladder to the diving board.

I heard voices, but I couldn’t make out what they were saying. It sounded like “now we’ll have to drain the tub” or something like that. Next thing I know, some metal mesh thing was scooping me out of my happy home, and I was unceremoniously dropped out on the grass.

That’s ok. It was fun while it lasted. But I know how to get back in, and I don’t need a key either. I think I saw Them putting fresh water in the swimming pool. Oh joy! A place like that is hard to find – I think I’ll be back!!!

  1. Ha ha, We’re thinking of putting in a pond for fish and frogs. No idea when that will happen though.

  2. LOL! Reminds me of when we had a pool, and Mr. Granny opened the skimmer basket one day and came eye to eye with our resident (large) garden toad! Mr. Granny has a fear of frogs, and cleaning the pool became my job from that day on. That pool cleaning, on top of all my other house/yard/garden/pets and kids duties, was the main reason we sold that house!

      I’m surprised it didn’t COOK in that water! I had the temp set low, but in the summer it tends to get hot just from the sun heating it up.

    Cute! You should move him to the garden to eat all the bugs!

    Oh, adorable, that you let Freddy write his very own guest post! I really enjoyed this, Villager, and I’m sure happy you managed to rescue this little guy. 🙂

  6. How adorable! Apparently, now you need to build a pond! As we discovered with our last pond…if you build it, they (frogs, toads, herons, ducklings…) will come!
