And births this date include....
A bunch of people were born today, but most of whom I have absolutely no interest in at all.
Yesterday was Tucker's baseball game...

Frog Jumping Day
When: Always on May 13th
Frog Jumping Day is a great day to jump like a frog. Or, is today intended to jump "over" a frog? Either way, today is a fun day. But, is this truly the reason for this day? Read on.........
The roots of Frog Jumping Day go back to Mark Twain's first short story. It was first published in 1865 as "Jim Smiley and His Jumping Frog". Later, he published it as "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County". It is also known under a third title "The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County".
While we have discovered many links and references to Frog Jumping Day evolving from this Mark Twain short story, we have yet to discover the reason for this particular date. May 13th is neither the date of Mark Twain's birth , nor his death.
