A frog, a river and some butterflies

Today was good.

Ratty, that is a TOAD! I hope you did not leave him in the vicinity of any unattended motor cars. Toot toot! We must summon Badger immediately!

A toad?!?! NO wonder he kept chatting up passersby and rattling on about his fast fast motor car!

"The world has held great Heroes,
As history books have showed;
But never a name to go down to fame
Compared with that of Toad!"
- Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows, Ch. 10

I think a trip to Badgers is in order. Off with us Mole! We can brave the wild forest together! And later, a journey in my little boat?

More about witty Toady:

"The clever men at Oxford Know all that there is to be knowed. But they none of them know one half as much As intelligent Mr. Toad!"
- Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows, Ch. 10

"Well, well, perhaps I am a bit of a talker. A popular fellow such as I am - my friends get round me - we chaff, we sparkle, we tell witty stories - and somehow my tongue gets wagging. I have the gift of conversation. I've been told I ought to have a salon, whatever that may be."
- Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows, Ch. 11

"It's never the wrong time to call on Toad. Early or late he's always the same fellow. Always good-tempered, always glad to see you, always sorry when you go!"

Oh dear. On the radio they just issued a APB for an escaped motor car thief disguised as a washerwoman. Oh dear.
