A few weeks ago, Lauren accidentally severed the electrical cord to the pump in our foutain in our back yard. The pump is very important to keeping the water moving to prevent any type of algae or other growth in the basin. Now that we are in the rainy season it has been difficult to keep the basin free of water. It has also been difficult to rewire the pump because I would have to do it outside and water and electricity do not mix. Hell, Bill and electricity do not mix
You have seen the picture of the Horny Toad in our bird house. How do we know he is a Horny Toad? Because our foutain is now filled with tadpoles. There were millions of them. I wanted to empty the basin and and clean it with bleach. Lauren convinced me that the tadpoles would all probably get eaten by birds and other predators and that we should wait to see what happened. I reluctantly agreed.
Many of the tadpoles have been eliminated due to natural selection however there are still about a hundred in the basin and now they are so big I feel guilty about killing them. So I am sure our backyard is going to be overrun by frogs in a few weeks.
