If you have a frog phobia, you might not want to view these pics:)
These days, I don't see as much of the Chimera grandchildren as I do of the McTavish grandchildren. The result is that my blog doesn't feature Cheetah and Little Bear as much as the other ankle-biters. So today, for no particular reason, I decided to find a favourite pic of Cheetah to feature in a post.
I have many favourite pics of Cheetah because he is so photogenic with his pixie face and big blue eyes. Can't you imagine him as an elf-lordling?
I can remember when this little frog landed on him nearly 18 months ago whilst he was playing in the McTavish cubby house. We all love frogs - although Mr Sunshine has a frog phobia, he still thinks they are cute to look at. As long as they keep their distance and don't give him THE LOOK - you know. . . that LOOK that means, "I'm about to jump and I'm looking for a suitable landing site." Fortunately none of the grand-kiddies have inherited his phobia. [They have all inherited my spider phobia :( ]
Cheetah was obviously delighted that the little green guy was being so chummy and was disappointed when he jumped away. They say that frogs are a sign of a healthy environment. The McTavish back yard must be very healthy indeed. They have heaps of them - in the pot plants, under leaves, in the crevices and even in the barbecue. You have to do an inspection before turning on the gas. At times the outdoor area has a distinctive amphibian fragrance from the number of frogs. If you have frogs you will know this fragrance.

I have worked as a Biology lab assistant, Pathology lab assistant, geochem lab assistant, land tenure researcher, hospital and prison chaplain, parish care coordinator and part owner of a small business. I have studied some science (no degrees) and have a theology and a chaplaincy certificate. I still love science of all types and enjoy studying theology. Science and theology belong together.
