While hanging laundry out I discovered a toad, so of course I called the kids over to see. The kids were thrilled! That's "thrilled" in a stand-offish, I'm-not-gonna-touch-it-YOU-touch-it kind of way. The likelihood of anybody laying hand on it was dampened by the spray of pee it emitted as I picked it up. That is one smart little fella. He is relatively unmolested, in one piece, and has resumed his job of happily devouring mosquitoes and the like in my backyard.
