The Frog Came Back

drunk frog 2A certain hotel in Bourke was once noted for its homing frog; it may be there now for all I know. Some of  its off-“spring” are doubtless doing the polka along the Darling bank.

Well, this particular frog habitually resided under the beer taps behind the bar, and you might take him across the Darling River by day and let him go, only to find him back next morning at the pub.

Many a wager was won and lost on that home loving frog.
– The Grenfell Record and Lachlan District Advertiser (NSW) Monday April 22 1929

If you would like to support my work, you can leave a small ‘bar tip’ here of $2, or several small tips, just increase the amount as you like. Your generous patronage of my work and research, however small it appears to you, will greatly help me with my continuing costs.
