Blog: Living Cheap in Kansas

Mr. Froggy went a'courtin

Monday, June 07, 2010

One last about a month ago I was home alone. I had the north window open and  began hearing a gruff "brummph" coming from outside.  After going to investigate, I discovered that we had a new visitor to our little stone circled tub pond - a bull frog.

Now to make a long story short, we were planning on digging up the flower garden and small round tub and replacing the tub with a larger molded pond and adding a small waterfall and reworking all the perrenials that live around it.  That was the plan.

Then we went to Hawaii for ten days to visit our grandson, daughter and son-in-law (he is stationed at Scofield Barracks - soon to be deployed to Iraq).

It was a nice trip.  Well a few days after we returned, I went to check out the tub and see if I could drain it to get ready to rework the flower garden.

You guessed it.  We have a tub of tadpoles.  Hundreds of the little critters were merrily swimming around.  I guess the flower garden and waterfall will have to wait...

About Me:

I've been a cheapskate just about all my life. In doing so I've learned to do just about everything. I can sew, paint, hang wallpaper, install tile and flooring, pull and replace toilets, sinks, garbage disposals and faucets. Remove and replace ceiling fixtures and fans, replace outlets and switches, I've installed windows (both on houses and on computers!), I can rehab almost anything from furniture (repair, reupholster and refinish) to computers (I built my husband a good laptop using three broken ones that I got for free)! I've taken cheap to a whole new level!
