Frogs! A Chorus of Colors

If you have not been to the frog show at the National Geographic Museum, definitely go check it out. I believe that frogs bring good luck and are some of nature’s most interesting critters, so I was delighted when my lovely wife agreed to go with me on a frog-viewing date yesterday. It’s so romantic to be together among nature’s beauty that I wish we had waited for Valentine’s Day. Speaking of romantic, there was even a display about how frogs hump, as well as a tank of bullfrog tadpoles that I look forward to watching develop over the next three months, before the display closes down.

Actually, that might be a good way to celebrate the day of romance, in case you are still looking for someplace to take that special person for Valentine’s Day. Hey – it beats a trip to the weird fish-stinking juice bar or relying on dog poop to create that magic moment. Give me frogs any day to help liven up the romance. If you go this route, be sure to take time off from work because the museum closes at 5 p.m. daily. Maybe some frogs in the morning, some good old-fashioned afternoon delight, and then a nice dinner out. Can it get any better than that?
