    We had our own toady pool. On a long hike with stunning vistas, the best part was a little toad in a mountain pond. Years later we still mention it and smile. These are the great moments of life, these small pleasures which are really not so small after all. They are treasures that we carry always.

    Our toady pool is in a very humble acre or two of woods that nobody cares much about, where people leave old mattresses, etc. And yet there’s so much wonder in this woods that no one loved, as far as I could see, except me and my dogs.

    Thanks again, Jingle. I had three kittens in the 90’s that I used to call my jingle kids, because every time they walked and ran their rabies tags jingled on their collars.
