An engineer was crossing a road one day, when a frog called out to him and said, “If you kiss me, I’ll turn into a beautiful princess.” He bent over, picked up the frog, and put it in his pocket. The frog spoke up again and said, “If you kiss me, I’ll turn back into a beautiful princess and stay with you for one week. “The engineer took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket. The frog then cried out, “If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I’ll stay with you for one week and cook for you.” Again, the engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket. Finally, the frog asked, “What is the matter? I’ve told you I’m a beautiful princess and that I’ll stay with you for one week and cook for you. Why won’t you kiss me?”
The engineer said, “Look, I’m an engineer. I don’t have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog – now that’s cool.”
So … I take it girlfriends are more demanding than talking frogs? 😉
Have a lovely weekend!

Recently I’ve learned that many participants in the #AtoZChallenge have also been making their own lists of blogs they’re following and putting them into their posts, as a way to “spread the word.” I’m a bit late to this, but I thought I would put up my personal 2017 Challenge Collection, the blogs I’m following. I will be posting these to my blogroll once the Challenge is finished, like I did last year. 🙂
