strange mind

Froggy Courtin' Lake Ontario
7 inches wide x 7 inches high

I had gone to that favorite place of mine, Lake Ontario, to collect some beach glass and thought that today's piece should be about the lake. Again. I told you it was one of my favorite places, and in all seasons, too. So, I was putting the thing together when the song Froggy Went a-Courtin' popped into my head and wouldn't leave. Remember that song?
Froggy went a-courtin'
He did ride, uh-huh, uh-huh.
Froggy went a-courtin'
He did ride,
A sword and pistol
By his side, uh-huh, uh-huh.

He goes to Miss Mousie's house, she sits on his lap, I think they get married. Anyway, I found the frog (isn't he cute?) that belonged on this collage to finish off the piece so that the song would go away. I also checked out YouTube for versions of the song, and there are many, including Bruce Springsteen and Elvis and Bob Dylan!

I haven't yet seen a frog at the lake, although—when was it? here—I did come across a large crayfish/crawdad/mudbug there once.

Why does the mind link some things together and not others?!
