  5. Cute little fella! Reminds me of 3 years ago when I broke both of my ankles and was confined to a wheelchair. My grandson had been out playing with a toad and proudly brought it inside to show me. When he came back inside his mom who was downstairs and unaware of his recent activities, sent him to get Grandma a glass of water. Hand washing was optional. Needless to say, I wasn't thirsty anymore.
