The gulp gulp frogs.
Often at night I love to leave my window open, the fresh air and the humming night symphony make for a good night's sleep. The summer and fall have the constant soft sounds of crickets and other night insects that creates a gentle white noise to help you drift off. My favorite however is the spring frogs, suddenly the dead winter nights with only an occasional mournful wolf howl burst forth with life.
The first to start are the peeper frogs, together they make this beautiful chorus, almost a song. Nothing makes me sleep better than to drift off with them singing in the background. Also they signal better days ahead. The peepers peep until about the last week of May. While their song starts to fade out, another type of frog takes over, it has a more of a humming song. By the first week of June they make an almost hypnotic night theme. It goes in soft waves of intensity.
After these frogs start to fade out for another year, comes the last ones. I have no idea what they are called but some nights I have to shut the window. These guys make an annoying sound and if you are having a bad night of sleep, they certainly don't help. They make a sound like, "GULP... gulp, gulp gulp! GULP... gulp, gulp, gulp! Some times it can sound like "Derp... derp, derp, derp"! Most times however you learn to live with it, I mean at least it's not like listening to traffic.
The one night event that I don't like is when you wake up and hear only silence. That's a signal fall is on the way, same with no bird songs in the morning, another bad sign. I will worry about fall later, we have just started summer and I will take the gulp gulp frogs over anything that has to do with fall. Now where's my ear foams... grumble grumble.. stupid frogs.
Today I saw a silly game to play, it says that your stripper name is the colour of your underwear and then the last thing you had for breakfast. Ooh la la, today I'm "Black Coffee" which sounds really sexy, much better than yesterday which would have been "White Porridge".

Oh, dear, I'm Commando Apple! There seems to be a theme going here.
I think I'd rather have frogs than these obnoxious crows and turkeys.
Nekkid People Unite!!!
Pink Croissant here!
Debra you and Steven need to form a band. Black Coffee and Pink Croissant!
Black avocado toast
White Cheese Grits.. omg. 😧
@Jennifer- This made me laugh so hard! I'm pairing you with RJ. Black avocado toast now being served with white cheese grits!
Sorry for the semi-take over, Stevie. This was so much fun, I couldn't help myself. I'll try harder next time. If you're ever feeling down, just ponder over the fact that you have at the very least, three semi nude readers.
Hahaha, Bob you never disappoint me!!!
Anne Marie, I knew that was coming! :D
Deedles, ugh turkeys and crows!
Commando Apple sounds more like a kid's hero than stripper!
Bob, remember I did go to a naked Halloween party!
Yay Debra! That could also be the name of a spy under cover!
Deedles it's because Canadians value clothing especially in winter!
Richard... so black undies eh?
Jennifer, I burst out laughing here! Best one yet?
Deedles, I enjoy when you are having fun, you don't take over, you draw us in.
christ...doesn't anyone wear underwear in this group?
I’d rather listen to nature any time.
I’m Red and White Apple.
Anitia.. hey come on, who are you kidding?
Puts a whole new laundry image to the term "stain remover"!
Sixpence, that sounds like the stripper name of a stripper in a flyover state.
I love the sounds of nature. I was on a conference call with my window open and the bird songs were so loud someone remarked, are you outside?
Blue Cheerios here 😄
HuntleyBiGuy, hahaha... blue Cheerios!
