My friend Froggy made a special visit to me today, to remind me that this Saturday, June 18 is the famous Mermaid Parade at Coney Island.
He desperately wants to go – he’s never been to the parade before, but he’s heard fantastic stories about it.
Froggy loves girls, and he is pretty darned sure that he’ll love mermaids just as well.
He wants me to tell you about how he met, and got close to, Marilyn when he was in Las Vegas:
But I had to remind him that this is supposed to be a kids-friendly blog site!
So, instead – he just asked me to tell you how much he loves Coney Island.
He went to the Rockabilly Festival there a couple of years ago, and Froggy had a blast!
He adores the beach, and watching the girls soaking up the sun.
He loves the Parachute Drop. He wanted to climb up to the top. Froggy is not afraid of heights – oh no, not Froggy. But I told him that he shouldn’t…
I inticed him to stay on the ground by showing him some of the food to be had:
Froggy can REALLY cause trouble after he’s had a Cold Beer!
Okay, okay Froggy! He wants me to show you his favorite rides.
and The Wonder Wheel:
He LOVES the arcades!
and all of the games – especially this one:
And, Froggy really loves Coney Island when the sun goes down
and he can see all of the pretty lights!
Froggy loves the simple things in life!
Here’s information about the parade route:
Froggy says, “Check out the website, and hopefully I’ll see you there on Saturday!!”
Froggy is definitely excited about this! He’ll meet his very first mermaid!!!
I think it’ll be Love At First Sight.
