Grandma and the Travel Frog

TF has not been totally lost. After spending a couple of months guarding the yard for Jenni's friend Carmen, TF hitched a ride to Southern California with me. On the way down from Jenni's I stopped near Gaviota, California, so TF could bask in the rays and enjoy the view of the Pacific.
Totally forgot to take him to Washington State with me last weekend (that comes under the DUH category); however, to make up for that omission I will be inquiring of the English cousins coming to visit the end of next month whether they have an interest in giving TF the English/European tour treatment. Meanwhile, we'll see if we can get a few snaps of him in and around Greater LA.
At this exact moment he's riding shotgun in my car - now all I need to do is remember to take the camera with me on my travels and his ongoing sojourn will be memorialized for posterity (or at least for you).
Have a great weekend!

Another Note...

Well, I think it's been awhile since TF was last seen on the blog. I happen to know he's kickin' around at Rose & Thistle Farm in Central California. They have a new pool there, so perhaps he's enjoying a good long soak before carrying on. Even with rains here recently, he's visiting some mighty dry territory.

I've requested his return to the city since we're headed south in a week. I think he'd enjoy a visit to Los Angeles, don't you?

(Sorry he's been delayed. Trying to get him back so we can share him with someone who will move him along.)

A Note....

Hi TF's mate!
Just wanted to let you know TF has hopped along up the canyon for a farm stay with my friend, Carmen. He immediately found a beautiful spot to relax next to a Celtic-looking fellow. I'm fairly certain he'll enjoy the daily goat milking parade that will trot right by.

Thanks for letting us share in his adventure.

Central Coast California

The frog is getting around here on the Central Coast.

Last week he was camping on the shores of Lopez Lake where he enjoyed some good swims, through the water was quite low.

Over the weekend, he took in the sites as the Dilly Dally Dog Parade - a costumed occasion for dogs (and one cat).
We've tried to pass him on to new hosts, but no one is biting. So, with us he remains, safe, and entertained.

Traveling Mate Jen,
I am quite enjoying my time with your family. Your girls make me laugh, a lot! They are so very smart I cannot believe it!
Thanks for taking my camping, now that was neat. The great outdoors, I love to be outside, and by a lake - that's what I am talking about. I feel confident in saying that I could have stayed there the rest of my days, but alas adventure calls me!
A dog parade! Oh my I never would have known that is happens. Thanks for taking me there, it educated me on dog costumes!
Till My Next Adventure

Frog Finds Way to California

That's right, after a long, tough, sometimes hot, certainly sometimes frightening trip across the center of the continent, TF is surfing the fine waves of Central California. Unfortunately, while his new hosts do take a plethora of pictures, TF has been quite busy leaping from here to there, so he doesn't always make it into the photos, but his hosts are growing wise and have captured him now and again.

Here he is taking in the stats on the Texas/Oklahoma state line. He liked Texas with all its mosquitos.

I needed a little holding after we hit that VULTURE! Couldn't the driver have leaped over it or something? You shoulda seen the windshield after it was over. SHEESH!

Seeing the sites in Chaco Canyon, Chaco Culture National Historic Monument, New Mexico. My hostesses took a 5 mile hike, but I refused to join them. What are you KIDDING? Five miles through a DESERT!? Not on THIS frog's life! Still, I found some ruins not far from my water source.

Next up? Who knows? My hosts traveled 9,611 miles, the last 1000 or so with me. So they swear they're staying home for awhile. Yeah...we'll see about that!

Jen in Orcutt, CA

Dear Traveling Mate Jen!
That vulture was very frightening! I am glad that I was in a vehicle with sides for that expierence! Staying home for a bit sounds great, but I guess I will see what you mean when you say "stay home."
Thanks for letting me tag along.

Wyoming Wildlife is for the frogs!

Cheap Motel, Hope the sheets are clean. Be careful who you talk to in the parking lot of these type of places.

This made me feel at home.

I found these cute little girls that took me under their wing. There is a lot of mosquitoes here, I am very full.

I'm having fun meeting new people, we ate deep fried gizzards from a deli. Yee Haw!

This is more my kind of food: French Toast and Bacon! mmmmm

Dear Traveling Mate,
Thanks for the awesome adventure! It sure was a blast to try new things, like riding on a motorcycle, and eating gizzards. What an experience that will be for me to tell my grand kids! About my other travel partner that UGLY bunny, at first I thought this won't be too bad other than he doesn't ever talk, but then we were best friends and he wouldn't ever just be quiet so i could take a nap! But it was all fun. It was also fun to meet some people of a younger generation, I haven't played with kids since I was a kid!
Thanks for taking me with you!
Mr. T.F.
