Monday’s Finish the Story – March 2nd, 2015 – Young Dan

Finish the story begins with:When it came to a challenge, Jim Smiley just had to jump right in!

He was that sort of guy. Game was the word to describe Jim.

Today was the Devil’s Haven County Fair and Frog Hop.

The challenge was to beat the Mayor’s cane toad, Cassius.

Jim took Young Dan out of his coat pocket, kissed him on top of his smooth head and placed him at the start line.

What happened next was mayhem.

Dan hopped, Cassius pounced. Dan’s splayed legs was not a good sign. Jim picked up his friend, sadly beyond his most comforting kiss.

The mayor grinned a winner’s grin, Cassius looked smug. Jim plotted revenge.

    Hmmm….wonder what that revenge will be? Any hints Michael? Loved the story! Thanks again for participating and see you next week! Be well… ^..^

    I’ve taken a distinct dislike to the Mayor. Jim needs to find a nest of native meat ant. They are immune to the toad’s poison. Other frogs and toads will move out of the way of the native meat ants, but Cane toads are so arrogant that they’ll just sit there waiting for their poison to take care of the ants, in the meanwhile the ants are having a lovely banquet 🙂

  3. I really like Lyn’s comment! Let the native meat ants eat up the Cane toad! Haha! Great story. I enjoyed reading it. 🙂

    Oh no, poor little froggy! That Cassius has a lot to answer for. I’m trying to imagine a smug toad 🙂
