My parents are "Bubbe" and "Pops" ... but I swear, these are not the people who raised me. THESE people are completely adorable.
They visited us back in the fall. They got home to discover a tiny stowaway ... a small green tree frog.
They are in the land of snow, and they knew it couldn't survive outside, so they brought it in and placed it in a houseplant.
4 months later, "Fwog" is doing well. They provide it with water and once a week, they drive into Albuquerque to purchase live crickets.
I don't know who these cute people are, but I assure you, they are not the people who raised me.
They will return here in March, and bring Fwog with them, to return him to his natural habitat. I will not be surprised if at that point, he velcroes himself to my mother. I mean, he's been hand-fed crickets.
I think it's time for my parents to get another dog.
