I was going to ask this on the birds thread but I didn't want to go off topic. One of the things I enjoy most when it gets warm enough to sit outside at night are the frogs. We have several types of frogs here from tree frogs to bullfrogs. When they all strike up a chorus it can be a symphony of different pitches and sounds. Believe it or not it is a very relaxing thing. Are there many kinds of frogs in Tennessee? I hope so cause I'll miss my concerts With all of the water up here right now you can imagine the performance their putting on. They're quite happy.

Yeah, there's a variety of frogs, including bullfrogs. Bullfrogs tend to like farm ponds.

Oh good! I'm glad. Picture it: somewhere in Tennessee, sitting on the back porch, coffee after diner, listening to the live frog concert.....Pure Bliss. My husband always tells me I'm a cheap date

You're right!!! I forgot about them. You know the more I've read here the more I've noticed that there aren't that many differences between here and there. That's probably why we love it so much. It has all the best from here without some of the bad. I guess country is country.

We have a lot of spring peepers here in NE PA. I have a small pond on our property and they've been hollerin' for the past few weeks. I absolutely love it! One of our firefighter's (transplanted fm NY) says they drive him nuts. To me it is sweet music to fall asleep to!

We probably have more possums . . .

Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?
A: To prove to the possum it could be done.

I know what you mean, there are people around here too that tell me they would drive them crazy and they'd shoot them all. I guess it's an acquired taste but I love it too. Especially the type of tree frog we have that we call "peepers". Talk about surround sound. It sounds like it's coming from everywhere.

One animal we don't have in TN (well maybe in West but not East) is armadillos but we know of them......we just call them opossum on a half shell

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the chicken joke I swear all we need here is Ridgerunner this morning to complete this comic trio and people in offices all over the country would be sitting at their desks laughing hystericaly and falling off their chairs. HEY! Maybe we can take control of the world!!!

I'm sorry! I'm under control now. I have my coffee. I'll be alright in a minute. Actually we did have a possum in our garage last year. I was shocked because I didn't even know we had them up here. I've lived here all my life and never even heard of them around here. I was told that they are migrating north. I wonder why?
