Mrsanborn,

Here's a summary, short and sweet:

Frog: Is full-time here till they croak (Plus what GG said)

Snowbird: Winters here

Snowflake: Gets here whene'r they can any ole' time o'year.

Glad you asked. It's your rite as a Villager to know.

In our neighborhood the "snowflakes are referred to as "butterflies". I guess migrating back and forth all year long.

A poster the other day referred to us as "Wrinklies." That one tickled me, too!

Wasn't the "Plunk your magic twanger froggie" on the show where they said "I'm Buster Brown. I live in a shoe. This is my dog Tide. He lives in here, too!" I'm pretty sure, between 2,000 of us we can pull this together!

I thought that dog's name was Tige.

OK, Gracie Girl, I'll cede that one to you! Wasn't it the Buster Brown Show on Saturday mornings? Afterthought...we actually had a restaurant here until recently called The Magic Twanger. Nobody had a clue but us old F#$%s.

I think it was Buster Brown who told Froggy to plunk his magic twanger. Buster Brown "lived in a shoe...." can't remember the rest of the jingle.
