Favorite Quote:
Nothing says I miss you quite like war poems carved on your door with a stanley knife.

Deep in the forest lived a kind old frog
Who felt that he needed something to eat
So he remained sitting on a brown log
Until he found a fly that looked quite sweet
“Hello tasty fly!” he said with a grin
The fly quickly ran away out of fear
“No matter what I do, I just can’t win!”
And at that, the frog shed a single tear
Soon another fly came buzzing on by
And the frog had learned from his past mistake
Out flew his tongue without batting an eye
And he devoured that fly like a cake
For now that the frog was full and quite proud
Alone in the forest, he stood and bowed
