What's this crap...?

Den of the Beastly Bear

Hi Folks!

The other night I got out of work and made my way to my car. I work for GM in Flint, Mi. My plant at one time had almost 5,000 employees a shift, so as you can imagine the park lot is substantial.

Today only about 1,700 people share 2nd. shift with me, so there are still a lot of cars out there. Just not like before.

I had a fairly good parking spot, within 50 yds. of the door. I say "fairly good" because the parking lot is some 200 yds. wide and over half a mile long.

I got in the car and fired her up, turned on the a/c and adjusted the radio. As I put it in drive and began to pull out, I noticed something on the passenger side of my windshield. An oblong blob of white with black flecks...damn seagulls!!! They are a real problem around our plant, and they crap on EVERYTHING!

I knew better than to hit the wipers or washers I'd just smear it all over....well I'd wait until I got to a gas station and clean it off then.

I headed up the isle to head home, and the blob moved!!! Not downward, as gravity would dictate but laterally. What the hell?

What's this crap? Crap doesn't move...

I pulled over to take a look and this is what I found...
A tree frog! Where in the hell did a tree frog come from in the center of all this concrete?!?

He must have hitched a ride in on someone else's vehicle, then switched to mine...

Well, now what to do with him?
Put him on someone else's car?
Put him on the pavement? 
Let him take his chances on the ride home?

So being the big softie I am towards animals, I gently scooped him up and put him in my lunch box and brought him home!

So the city frog comes to the suburbs...
I gave him a nice home, next to one of the house lights so he can eat his fill at night...a nice bush to hide in during the day, what more could a frog want?!?

I wonder if he'll be popular with all the female frogs?
You know, new frog in town...
Will the country frogs swoon at this city frogs sophistication?
Will the male frogs be jealous of his "Too cool for the tree" ways?
We'll see...

Be Well Folks!

      Usually only extends to critters and kids...grown-ups create their own problems generally.
