Meanwhile, Back in Frog Holler…


The ravine behind the house is coming to life. After sitting dormant all winter it is, once again, transforming itself into the wildlife equivalent of a singles bar. If you listen closely enough, over the sound of the courting frogs, I swear you can hear Marvin Gaye playing softly in the background.


I've been really tryin , baby
Tryin to hold back these feelings for so long
And if you feel, like I feel baby
Come on, oh come on,

Let's get it on
Lets get it on
Let's get it on
Let's get it on

We're all sensitive people
With so much love to give, understand me sugar
Since we got to be
Lets say, I love you

There's nothin wrong with me
Lovin you--- And givin yourself to me can never be wrong
If the love is true

Don't you know how sweet and wonderful, life can be
I'm askin you baby, to get it on with me
I aint gonna worry, I aint gonna push
So come on, come on, come on, come on baby
Stop beatin round the bush....

Let's get it on
Let's get it on
Let's get it on
Let's get it on

So can you picture some poor frog hanging out around the pond, approaching the ladies with, “Hey baby, you come here often?”  The girl frog looks him over and thinks to herself, “I waited a whole year for this?”

I can. That’s why I don’t need television.

Abby said...

Are you and your household ok following the tornados? I thought of you and hope all is well.

Christine said...

We are all fine. The tornados were all south of here. I was sitting at the airport in a hail storm waiting for my brother to arrive when they went through.

Abby said...

Tornados destroyed 20 homes about 7 miles from us here in TN - it was a very tense day. I'm glad to hear you and yours are fine and well. I'm sure it was a tense day for you as well - several states apart but, such a large system. My heart goes out to all who are suffering. Glad to know you're ok!

Oh, man! I'll never hear the peepers again without thinking of that song!
