A Toad In The Hand

What is it about toads?  I like them.  Even love them.  They eat tons of mosquitos and gnats, they are mellow and interesting to me.  Ever since I was young I have gone and found a toad to hold for a moment – to say hello to and marvel at.   Now I pick them up and say thank you for keeping balance in my yard, thanks for being here.  Don’t we all need to hear that from time to time?
