or lose the plot with another amphibian.

I think that Mark Twain's first short story to be published (I might be wrong) was 'The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County'. This is an account of a powerful frog that lost a bet because someone loaded it with shot.

A Frog is also an ornamental braiding consisting of a button and a loop fastening front of garment, as in Miltary uniforms eg see Hussars,

Wow ... what a lot of information from so many people ... thank you everybody ... that should keep me busy for quite a while.

TO NIGEL GRAHAM 2 please ... how did you know I was trying to write a book ? one section I am stuck with unfortunately ... in the "jam butty mines" at Knotty Ash there was an 18 inch tramway system ... the entrance is secret and guarded by the "Diddy Men" ... I cant find any of them to arrange access ... without important facts like these the book would fail ... maybe I should stay in the garden and talk to the tame frog who lives on my railway track ... he keeps playing "chicken" as my locos are approaching him.

To all who replied to my question .... thank you ... my original reply to everyone arrived as "edit post" and now seems to have vanished from the forum ... never mind.
