Froggies in a Mailbox
I go to our mailbox and open it up.
This is a rural mailbox and as I walk to it an eagle flies overhead talking about something. I wonder what I'll find in the mailbox -- somebody talking about something? A check? An order for some books? A long overdue bill?
I open the box and look within and ...
What do I see
two little froggies blinking at me
I pick up a long flat sealed envelope
One of the froggies is stuck to it
jumps on my forearm
sticks like glue
Lorry asks, "What is that stuck to you?"
Never a dull day
no bill, no check, no order
A gold-eyed frog
the size of a quarter
