I have mentioned before and we have discussed at length your encounters with our native fauna. You have fed wallabies, frightened innocent little blue tongue lizards, and been petrified of spiders. Wait a minute. Did I just say petrified? Because the next animal of which I speak was exactly that.
We stayed at a little Bed & Breakfast in the Hunter Valley called “Hilltop Lodge.” I was recently nearby and saw signs entreating me to stay, so I can only assume it still operates. It was a nice home with a nice view. We checked in late in the afternoon, and when we had our room to ourselves you retired to the en suite. Upon entering our bathroom you shrieked and came running out. My immediate fear was that a snake had come up through the plumbing, something that occasionally happens here.
You were virtually speechless. I’m not sure I had seen you like this before. Eventually you alerted me to the beast within, and I steeled myself for the encounter to come. I entered with a little fear and trepidation to find a dead, dehydrated, petrified, it-ain’t-ever-going-to-breathe-again frog. I was about to deal with it, when you pulled me away. Your face was filled with worry and concern. I summoned the owners and they apologetically removed the offending carcass.
As a fitting coda you were attacked yet again. The sun had been down for many hours, and we were heading out to dine. We made for the car, but before we could embark a very much alive frog leapt out in front of you. He had back up. His mate was watching nearby. You shrieked and clung to me for protection. I laughed as sympathetically as I could manage. They were only seeking the sanctuary of the nearby pond my love. I don’t remember where we dined, but I remember your angst at having to cross the threshold that was the frogosphere before we could sleep. Suffice it to say we made it across safely and lived to tell another tale.
I will save you my Darling
From Sir With Love

I went in to take a shower, and all I saw was some dark thing in the bathroom with me. I didn’t stick around to see what it was. Your smirk is etched in my memory. I added heaps of amusement for you during our adventures. I was happy to oblige. I do feel awful how terrible the owners felt though.
If I hadn’t been with you nearly every waking hour, I would have suspected you of planting that dead frog just for the chance to be my hero again. You had already reached hero status with me, love.
I had forgotten about the live froggy assault outside. I’m beginning to wonder if there was some sort of cold-blooded, vertebrate conspiracy going on, and they were out for justice for their fallen comrade. The frog certainly died in the most unromantic way, and those neon-green buggers knew it. They blamed me. They knew I had dined on frog legs in the past – numerous times. They were figuring out a way to creep into our room at night, to pounce on my face, and stuff their webbed hands up my nose.
I knew it would be dark when we returned to the Bed & Breakfast, and the frog brigade would be lying in wait for me. You would have just laughed yourself to death, and where would that have left me? With a lifeless Australian and a lane full of dead amphibians after I beat them all senseless protecting myself because my “hero” died in the throes of a laughing spree. That just wouldn’t have been ideal.
I laughed when I saw the pictures of the Bed & Breakfast and the room we stayed in. I had forgotten how the towels on the foot of the bed looked like giant nipple pasties. The room has changed very little from the link you supplied; I guess we stayed in the Deluxe Room.
The owners were sweet, and they fixed us an awesome breakfast the next morning, so deceased animal carcasses and burlesque bed lingerie just added an element of excitement to the otherwise quaint atmosphere.
And if memory serves, you asked me to assume the frog position a time or two for a game of leap frog. Yeah that’s right – leap frog. Ribbit.

Love that y’all included recordings of your reading the letters. I almost feel as if I’m sitting in on a private session. Thank you for including me and your other readers in such an intimate way.
Hi There Nebulize
Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to listen.
Like many of the good ideas on this blog, my Darling is responsible. Its been a bit of fun to record them in the main.
I really appreciate that you feel the connection, it’s very much why we chose to do it.
You two are adorable!
I lov his accent. 🙂
Ahhh thank you Lyric.
I just love him accent or not. 🙂 Sir will be thrilled to know you approve. Ha. He’s SO HUMBLE.
I see that my Darling is putting words into my mouth. 🙂 Pleased you liked my Aussie cadence.
Yep, except I thought it was beautifully British sounding.
I expect all Aussies to sound like that crocodile dude. lol 🙂
I just guffawed really loudly. Perfect!
There is one English guy who I sort of know. He will be full of both envy and loathing to think that anyone could possibly believe I have a beautiful British sound.
You have totally made my day.
“envy and loathing” … ..he sounds very human. 🙂
Tell him I would like his voice, also. 🙂
Not frogs…the horror, the HORROR! They’re just so freaky! 😀
I know, I know! Ha.
This is Australia where nearly every living creature can kill you. Frogs are the least of your worries. LOL
Frogs are always a worry lol!
Loving the audio again !
Then you’ll love what we have coming soon to The Sir Letters near you.
It’s not for a while, but I’m just trying to be the sales person I am not. Haha
Oooh, a movie per chance?!!
OK that made me spit on my screen. Gross but damn funny.
Hey Why not? A movie with you folks in masks! Good idea WC.
You really want us on video wearing masks? It almost sounds macabre…..lol. Maybe we should do it.
Well since we have all decided to be secretive I guess this is the only way 🙂 tell you what, You and Ms.Darling to dance to song at the same time on webcams and you should record it on your machine juxtaposing the too camera feeds. When you are done you can mask the faces and send it out and we can have an opinion poll on who the better dancer is :)))
I think the easiest way forward from here is for you to give us a demonstration.
Lol! But I have no one to dance with! Hah
BP Maybe we could see if Megs would be your partner? Regards Sir
Woah. I am game. Sorry Megs!
I think you are gonna get it bad from Ms.Darling today, Sir 🙂 I can see it coming.
You’ve done a fabulous job already BP. I see no reason to interfere. Haha
Cat got your tongue BP? Lol
Heck No! WordPress App did!!!
I put in a smiley there and it got swallowed in the electronic vortex.
And I just noticed that I had made quite a few typos on my long reply to Sir.
It sounds like some drunk bum typing out a message while riding a unicycle!
I swear mom, I didn’t drink when I typed that reply. I zeally shwear. Hic!
I mean, BP
Uh huh. That’s your story and you’re sticking to it?
Yup. Hic 🙂
I am sure there is a little video floating around in one of these posts. But you will have to wait with longing and anticipation to find out what we have planned next.
I wait with bated breath !
I’m so honored that you took the time to peruse my blog – Letters for Liana. I had a chance to look over your writings and found myself entranced. I am excited to follow what you share! Thanks!
Thanks for your kind words and for dropping by. We hope you can stick around and enjoy the ride.
Snakes come out of the plumbing? I am moving to Australia! Yes I am!
I think it’s a euphemism for something else Cupi. Just saying!
😉 I can live with both 😀
Atta girl! lol
😀 😀 😀 Yes, I enjoy such encouragement!
I can see you two are enjoying yourselves way too much! I’m calling the fun police!
Make sure they bring chips and dip!
Love you Sir.
Cupi and Darling
There is not a euphemism in site here, of that I can assure you. In your normal sewered city living it would be highly unlikely to happen, but when you get a little more remote and maybe the bathrooms are septic it has very much been known to happen.
This is just so sweet.
Pleased you enjoyed it.
