In general, I try to hold on to the few remaining shreds of my semi-anonymous status.
But nevertheless, every so often, I’ve willingly divulged a number of personal details.
For instance, I readily admit that back in high school, I was NOT voted, “Most likely to blog about various reptiles and amphibians…”
Which is very ironic, of course, considering the fact that there are few (if any) J-bloggers who’ve written more posts about said creatures than I have.
And as if that’s not enough, they’re about to be joined by yet another amphibian friend.
Which one, you ask? Here’s a hint… :-)
In honor of Sefer Shmot (which we’ll IY”H begin reading this coming Shabbat), here are some shots of the frog (i.e. צפרדע – tzfarde’a, for the Hebraically-oriented amongst you) which decided to, er, hop over for a brief visit during our recent Chanukah weekend in Avnei Eitan.
Note that when I say “decided,” I obviously mean that it was gently encouraged to come in out of the rain by several members of the extended Shiputzim family. (No, not me…).
As always, feel free to click on the pictures for a closer view. (Although I can’t imagine why you’d want to…)
