This weeks topic was "Froggy Went a Courtin." A song I didn't even know I loved. It's been a favorite since I first heard Uncle Pecos sing it on Tom & Jerry, but because of the stuttering, the only lyric I ever understood was "Crambo". This topic made me do a little research and I found the lyrics. The song is full of great situations and characters. Who doesn't love a sword wieldin', pistol totin' Frog; or a mean Uncle Rat, a beautiful Ms. Mousey, or the eclectic group of wedding guests. Here are a few discarded ideas I had for the post.
The proposal with Miss Mousy on his knee, and the convincing of Uncle Rat to go buy the wedding dress. I picked the shaving because that is what I always think of before going out, and the tattoo because I figure you have to be pretty tough to take a sword and pistol with you when you go a courtin'.
