Joking And Croaking

It's rice rice baby!


During the weekdays from Spring to Fall, I wake up to children joking on their way to school and fall asleep to frogs croaking in the rice fields.

These 2 sounds are the bookends to my day.

On weekends and holidays I am bookendless …

and don’t have those annoying kids waking me up so damn early every morning!

I kind of miss the frogs in the Winter though.


note: frogs don’t croak when they croak.

double note:

Margaret, are you grieving
Over Goldengrove unleaving?

“No it’s those bloody kids outside the window again!”

(apologies to Gerald Manley Hopkins)

  2. A little girl says to her wealthy Grandma: “Can you make a sound like a frog Grandma?”

    Gran: “I guess so dear, but why?”

    Little girl: “Because Daddy said we can go to Disneyland when Grandma croaks”

  3. Thanks for the comments.

    Doraz: actually the kids are pretty quiet on the way to school … and they don’t really wake me too much.

    Tony: hee hee!
