Frog of the Day

Perpetual Frog Calendar
Originally uploaded by KenCalvino.
I sad to hear this morning that Maynard Ferguson passed away. Great jazz trumpeter, probably known nationally best for his orchestration of the theme from Rocky. But to band students all across this country during the 1970's and 1980's, he was a gracious ambassador or music. More musicians would do well to follow in his footsteps.

This frog item is a perpetual calendar. Purchased through Casual Living, it was hand-carved and painted in Indonesia. The frog is a symbol of good luck and fortune in Indonesia and many of their craftsmen carve frog items. They are usually very well done and exceptionally painted. This is a lovely item and a great addition to the collection.
