Here's Jonnie!

Eddie Mair | 10:26 UK time, Tuesday, 20 November 2007

Well the photo is not of him, but the man who runs the froggers' refuge, has returned from...well, where do you think...based on the photo?


Jonnie says hello from (SECRET LOCATION) "and as part of our froggers on holiday occasional feature says 'Eddie, I was too embarassed to draw a large 502 in the sand, so instead thought I'd email you a picture of a lttle friend that's been sharing the odd beer with me. When I rattle the beer can he scurries out and appears to love it.
This pic, only taken on a mobile, shows him drinking some from a bottle top. I did try an experiment by substituting water but he/she prefered beer. A real pm beach buddie?"

TEENSY WEENSY correction at 1140: Jonnie is not back yet. And to prove it/rub our noses in it, he says "listening to Radio 4 on a pocket pc by the pool on wifi."

    Is that a snake? Oh heavens! But, if Jonnie is reading this, hope it's a lizard, which would be very nice company for anyone.

    Jonny, twas me in the Loonish Gear at 1. Glad you're having such a lovely holiday, and equally glad it is a lizard.

    I hope you're lounging like a lizard yourself - all the best to you and S.

    Jonnie, would you like to see a photo of the snow we've had, to show you what you've missed?!

    Sorry, for some reason this comment went to the last thread, rather than this one:

    So there's a lissed pizard* is there? Naughty Jonnie for leading the local wildlife astray :p

    *other spoonerisms are allowed, of course
