About Me

I was raised in South Florida back in the years when it was a peaceful and wonderfully safe place to live. We lived a mile from the beach and could ride our bikes over the intercoastal bridge right to the best beach around. All my years of growing up I was a competitive swimmer and belonged to AAU. I granduated from Florida State University with a BS degree in nursing. I am recently retired but I'm thinking of going back to work to support my hobbies.

If You Have Pollywogs In your Water, Drink With Your Teeth Closed.

Now that's what I call good advice - again a little something neat from the book I'm reading.  We always called them tadpoles, but I guess in the "olden days" some kids called them pollywogs.  We used to love to catch tadpoles and keep them until they turned into little froggies, hopped out of the bowl, and got all over the porch.  A couple of years ago, our oldest grandson and I caught some tadpoles in the horse trough.  He took some of them home with him and I took the rest up to the house, where I dilligently cared for them in an aquarium, ordered special tadpole food, and when they grew legs turned them loose near the spring.  I think they were probably tree frogs.  I kept 5 of them in a terrarium I made and fed them fruit flies.  They were really very interesting and cute, and  I was such a good "frog mommy".  Unfortunately,  it was Christmas week-end, and we went to our daughter's for three days, and when we got home all my little froggies had turned into little crispie critters and died.  Their water had evaporated under the heat lamp and the humidity got too low, I guess.  I was crushed, and I have given up on raising tadpoles.  I don't drink water with them in it either, but our horses did.  I wander if they kept their teeth closed.
