Hi all, bored, muddy, wet, tired and grumpy tonight so I thought I might post something pointless just because I can.

Woke up to find to about a half inch of snow this morning, we also got a dusting the other night. I actually slid a bit on my way to work. Looks like a "big one" is on the horizon here in eastern oregon. We may even have a white Halloween coming up, which will be interesting.

A couple days ago my sisters baby puppy Zooey was hit and killed by some dumbass speeding to work. The puppy had gotten out as my sister rushed around to catch a flight to Ireland for her honeymoon. We said we would find her,and a few hours later were handed the empty collar and told all the gruesome details by a friend. I was going to keep it all a secret until the honeymoon was over, but I kept getting texts "has Zooey been found yet?" Just totally sucked, I couldn't lie outright, and told her. My sister totally broke down, one of the shittiest situations I have ever been put in. Why can't people just slow the hell down in residential areas? That dog was like a niece, smart and sweet, and cool.

Also woke up this morning to find my smallest R.nigropalmatus missing. I fed night before last and the damn lid hung up on a chunk of silicone and left a mininscule crack. I was incredibly pissed I had missed this, I have a towel over the tank, so just didn't notice. Took an hour off of work(can't say this was all that bad,a nice break from spending the whole day crawling around like a hog in 6" deep freezing ooze) to do a search. Found the little frog mummy in record time. I was probably a day late.

On a brighter note I have some really nice Jewel Orchids on their way in the mail. I'll post pics when I get them. My T. stellatum are growing at a galloping rate, as is the remaining nigropalmatus, and Lemmewinks, the demonic albino toad. I also may be getting some more red Geosesarma shortly, and I have a really gravid azureus. Also got a humongous box of magnolia leaves from our plant supplier in Wilsonville. He cracked up when I told him people actually buy these leaves!

Anyways, not much of a Facebooker, so decided to waste y'alls time instead, ha, ha. Have a nice week you weird frog people! JVK

PS Anybody see benedicta on the news tonight (NBC)?

I didn't really expect any responses to this morbid thread! Sorry to have bummed you, don't even know why I posted it in the first place.

Oh, by the way, forgot to mention.The other day I was hanging at a friends house shooting the breeze, heard a terrific crash!! Ran outside to see about a ten inch diameter limb had blown off his tree and right on top of my pickup! It left a dandy dent in my cab. Grubs were littered all over the top of my cab and the limb was really rotten. Damn cootonwoods!

Ha, ha, go ahead and delete this thread Raven, dumb, but thanks for looking.JVK

Noooooo! I love those frogs! I'm so sorry he got out and didn't make it. I feel terrible. Also, feel terrible about your sister's puppy.

Congrats on the Azureus being gravid, is it her first time?

I like updates like this. I have a facebook, but don't like it much. Wish I could just sit and post all the the neat updates about my frogs, but people already think I'm weird because I have them, so I stick tot he frog forums. lol
