Lloyd and Lauren have a house toad. I’ve been seeing it all week. Its talent seems to be scaring the bejeebers out of people. Early last week, it jumped out of a yew and scared Beth. Midweek, it scared me when it jumped out of the peonies. Later, it jumped out of a flowerpot while I was watering it. I was telling Beth about the toad yesterday as it jumped out from behind the air conditioner. I took a picture.
What does a house toad do? Is it just for fun? Does it bring you a Pepsi when you ask for it? Does it kill rabbits so they don’t eat your plants? (It’s not doing a very good job, Lauren. Sorry about your lettuce.) Or could it be some kind of home security system?
