Sir Froggie
Author of Sir Froggie's Ponderings


Sir Froggie
contemplates life from a unique perspective and reveals his thoughts through his inspiring column, Sir Froggie's Pondering every Monday.


Sir Froggie is the oldest living amphibian known to man. He is also a retired Knight who has fought off evil mosquitoes to save a friendly dragon from their vicious attack.

Sir Froggie has spent several hundred years on the planet observing human beings. He has extensive wisdom and knowledge which he shares to enlighten our spirits and encourage us to be the best possible people we can be.

In the 1980's, Sir Froggie met a young maiden who agreed to take on the task of ghost writing for him. (After several hundred years, his limbs were getting a little tired.) To keep Sir Froggie's thoughts and ponderings authentic, his ghost writer simply uses the initials JMP, as the gender of the writer did not seem as important as the messages Sir Froggie was trying to convey.



Even pond-scum has a purpose for sustaining life - 
Think what human beings are capable of!"

Ghost Writer - Sir Froggie's Ponderings

 

Jeanette M. Pintar (JMP)
Ghost Author of Sir Froggie's Ponderings

JMP discovered Sir Froggie while doing English writing assignments in middle school. Desiring more adventure than found in typical journaling, JMP longed for a "hero" that didn't have super powers or magic. Sir Froggie leaped out of her journal pages and has accompanied JMP through their evolution ever since.

Sir Froggie's Ponderings, with the help of JMP, appear in SFPNN every Monday.

11/22/99

 

GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD -
AND A LITTLE GARLIC BUTTER, TOO!

11/15/99

 

SOMETIMES WHAT LEADS US TO OUR DESTINATION
IS NOT OUR PURPOSE FOR BEING THERE.

11/08/99

LIFE'S GREATEST TEACHERS COME IN A VARIETY OF DISGUISES.

09/13/99

BETWEEN THE CATTAILS
IF YOU'D RATHER BASK IN THE SUN
ON A WATER LILLY.

It is either our biggest handicap

or our greatest enabler;

the choice belongs to each of us.

seek life's rewards and you will find them instead.

06/07/99

 

do you see a thistle for its flower or its thorns?

beyond the fear is love

and the glory of creation

04/12/99

if you listen to your heart and soul,

the music of life offers a melody

for every aspect of being.

03/22/99

 

it does not matter if you cannot

touch the top of your mountain at this point.

it does matter that you are able to

take one step at a time until you reach your summit.

03/15/99

 

to conquer fear,

take a lesson from the chorus frog

who sings loudest in the darkest hour

03/08/99

 

when the world revolves around you,

you'll always be stuck in the middle.

when your life revolves around love,

new horizons open up.

03/01/99

 

swallow your troubles and

quench your thirst for joy.

02/22/99

rush to the top and wonder what to do next -OR-

celebrate each step as you go,

noticing and appreciating everything along the way.

look at your situation from every perspective.

then you'll find a way to ease through it.

01/11/99

 

write a letter to someone…

the imprint it will leave on their heart

will far out-weigh the cost of a postage stamp.

01/04/99

 

the smallest daily decisions

have the greatest effect on our lives
