They're Here!

My companions for the next three months arrived this morning, straight from the Lower School Science Department. This isn't a photo of my precise Fire-Bellied Toads but a remarkable likeness downloaded from the internet. I had anticipated three of them, but there are four. So much for my plans of naming them Manny, Moe and Jack; Tom, Dick, and Harry; or Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

In considering famous foursomes, my feeling is that Matthew, Mark, Luke and John have been done well already and that Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter just don't cut it. Paul, Ringo, John and George come to mind but I have trouble remembering George.

Any thoughts out there, blogfriends?

Toadal love,

How about Enny, Menny, Minny and Moe?

So happy that your husband is feeling much better. It is a very scary time. My husband had his heart attack at KeyStone, CO about 15 years ago. We had a fast ride down the mountain, in an ambulance, to Denver.I too had such a feeling of calmness...my faith and the professionalism of the medical staff.

Drat - someone beat me to it I was going to say Eeny Meeny Miney and Mo! - let me think about it I might just get back to you with another suggestion.

I guess Eeny Meeny etc. are the obvious. My first thought too. Four seasons?

OH! You could have been my toad mentor. I didn't even get in on the drawing to give a home to two fire-bellied toads for the summer.
