Joe has an affinity for frogs.
I always say it must have something to do with his French “Gervais” heritage, (he’s now a Jarvis) but any time he sees anything celebrating the frog, he just lights up.
As a result, we have been given numerous gifts with frogs and they seem to be everywhere.
A few years ago, a friend gave us this little ornament (above) of a frog sipping a drink, and I have to admit, I smile every time I get it out of the ornament box. It’s just very apropos. Needless to say, I had to sketch it.
“The frogs wore red suspenders
And the pigs wore purple vests,
As they sang to all the chickens
And the ducks upon their nests.
The ducks and chickens sighed,
Then laid enormous spangled eggs
And quacked and clucked with pride.”
