A frog he would a-wooing go

 
A frog he would a-wooing go,
Heigh ho! says Rowley

Many of us learned this poem, or part thereof as it consists of several verses, and many of us have a special place in our heart for the green frog, whether he is Rowley or not.
 
Two senior frogs, Theodore and Raymonde discuss their younger days and assure each other that never, even in their wildest days of youth, did they 'carry on' like young Rowley of the poem.  In fact their discussion runs along similar lines to that of senior family members when discussing the youngsters.
 
Theodore and Raymonde spend their time sitting discussing; putting the world to rights and wishing for rain.  In the heights of summer rain seldom falls from the skies and when it does invariably it occurs in a downpour that doesn't fill ponds for Theodore and Raymonde to dive into.

Theodore in the striped trousers and is on his way, via Australia Post, to my little great grandson who has a second birthday next week, while Raymonde stays at home bringing a smile to our faces.
