I LOVE your selection but am mad at myself because I forgot to post a potential name! Love that garden frog!

Sara said...

Even though I didnt vote for Sir Tight Buns, I have to admit it fits:)

The Retired One said...

Gaston: Oh no! What name would you have wanted up for vote?

Sara: It fits but I will have to tell my hubby outside to move Sir T.B. and those hearing us will think it is his disease instead. ha

J.J. in L.A. said...

Woo Hoo! I won! I won!

Don't forget to perform the Naming Ceremony..."I hereby dub thee Sir Tight Buns!" when you place him in his new home.

The Retired One said...

J.J.: Congratulations!!! I hope some folks stop by your blog. Thanks for the unique name!

Ann said...

well I almost won....congrats to JJ and that is a great name.

Steam Me Up, Kid said...

That frog has nicer buns than any human i know. That carver must have had some great inspiration.

rainfield61 said...

Then I'll keep the Ninja name for my other purpose......

Shelley said...

Congrats on Sir Tight Buns! I'm sure he'll have a grand ole time in your garden!! :-)

The Retired One said...

Grannyann: Yes, you got some votes!

Steam: Yes. Nice buns. I wonder who the inspiration was...I hadn't thought of that. Good question!

Rainfield61: you have me curious! WHAT other purpose???? I feel an interesting blog post coming from you soon!

Rick (Ratty) said...

I DEMAND A RECOUNT!!! Oh, wait a minute. I forgot I wasn't voting for some bad politician. Isn't that how they do it when they lose?

CONGRATULATIONS on the new name, Sir Tight Buns.

Loree said...

Hahaha, Sir Tight Buns is a great name for him. He looks so sassy.

The Retired One said...

Ratty: A recount was performed, and Sir T.B. still won. But who knows when another election might occur?

Loree: He is sassy. Maybe you should have submitted that name for vote. ha
