That’s what the kool kids call St. Vincent dePaul. I went by there today, and got some fantastic treasures.
First, I got a couple shiny new tea cup/saucer sets. I’ve got a nice little collection going. Nothing fancy, maybe 20 sets. I just collect single cups with saucers, and don’t often see ones these days that suit my liking. These two were nice, and I got them for half-price. Nice.
I also got something else. I mean, really something else.
Some background here first.
I like frogs, frog things. Not all frog things though. People think sometimes that when you collect something, that you collect everything related to it. That’s not true – not even remotely. But I get cartoony frogs, beaded frogs, ceramic frogs, resin frogs, you name it. But I can’t even tell you what it is that makes some of the frogs likable and some of them not. No idea. But I think that if I were to show everyone this frog piece, it might make them think twice about picking out another plastic frog with a funny hat.
What you see there are taxidermied frogs, playing pool.
Seems that it’s some kind of tradition. I’m still looking it up, I need to know more about this. It’s just really, really odd. But I like it.
