Mass. Couple Has Concrete Frog Back


Even frogs with a bad case of wanderlust come home for the holidays.

A 15-pound concrete garden frog that disappeared from John and Gert Knight's back yard in April was returned to its Swansea home on Monday by a limousine driver.

When the frog disappeared, a letter was left that said it just needed to get away from the grind of garden life, but would be home for the holidays.

The Knights received postcards and snapshots of the frog in places that included New York, Venice, Indonesia and Venezuela.

The limousine driver on Monday said he was given instructions to deliver the frog safely to its home, but denied being involved in the abduction.
