Good 55º cloudy morning...
Tomorrow is a full moon. Plan ahead and be careful!
Yesterday I cleaned out a cupboard filled with food items I haven't even looked at in years, since before Jerry passed away! It's a good feeling to get rid of all those old foods. Most were old rice and I tossed a bunch of it out for the birds. They were happy.
Our weather yesterday was warm warm warm. We topped at 95º.
Picture of the Day.....
These tree frogs are most commonly called ‘Amazon Milk Frogs’, due to the milky white secretions that are released from the frog’s back when threatened (this rarely occurs with captive bred animals). In the past, Amazon Milk Frogs have also been called Amazon Cave Frogs, and Gold Mission Frogs, due to black markings on their eyes that resemble crucifixes. These frogs can be found throughout the Amazonian Basin of South America. The Amazon Milk Frog's scientific name is Trachycephalus resinifictrix.
An Amazon Milk Frog secretes a foul-smelling, poisonous milky substance from the skin to protect itself from predators and does not have natural enemies (thanks to the poison on/in the skin), except the tadpoles of its own species which feed on the eggs.This frogs rests under the leaves and branches high above the ground. It always chooses branches above the water to prevent injuries that could result from accidental falling from the tree. It is a carnivore (meat-eater). Its diet is based on insects, spiders and other types of small arthropods (that can be swallowed in one piece). Its toe pads can hold up to 14 times its body weight (That's like an average American man holding a Honda Civic with his toes!)

Years ago I bought an Appaloosa horse from a deputy.
I wanted to be in the Sheriff's Mounted Patrol.
Chief was a great horse but I found out he was so frightened of sirens. I was riding him and a siren went by and it was "high ho silver and away!!!!" OMGOSH! So, I didn't think that would work and found a deputy who wanted to buy him and barrel race him. That worked great, as Chief won many barrel races!
And speaking of the Sheriff's Mounted, when I was in high school I played the glockenspiel in the Sheriff's Boys Band.
(And yes, politically incorrect as there were 5 of us girls...two carried the banner and three of us played the glockenspiel!) As for parades, we marched behind the Sheriff's Mounted.
Back then they didn't have anyone coming along and picking up the horse poop, so we marched right through it! YUCK! Our white boots became brown boots!
