Jump to it!

If you’re going to jump, today is the day!  According to National Day Calendar dot com today is National Frog Jumping day!  That doesn’t mean you find a frog to jump over, it means you find a frog and enter him, or her, in the Calaveras County Fair and Frog Jumping Jubilee.   In 1865, Mark Twain published his first short story, Jim Smiley and His Jumping Frog. Later, he changed the name and published it as The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County. This same story also had a third title, The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.  This year the Jumping Jubilee takes place on May 19th at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds in Angels Camp, California.  You’ve got a few days to train your jumper and you’ll need it.  The current frog jumping record was set in 1986 by Rosie the Ribeter, who jumped 21 feet, 5-3/4 inches.  Listen to the podcast here; https://theriver953.com/lonnies-fun-fact/
