John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: Friday's Fotos - All I Want for my Birthday is a Frog! (And a New House)

Friday's Fotos - All I Want for my Birthday is a Frog! (And a New House)

My Daughter sent me this photo of my Granddaughter Katy in Canada and I had to post it. She just turned six today and is totally fearless. She couldn't wait to hold an alligator when visiting us in Florida and wild amusement park rides don't faze her a bit. We may have a future astronaut on our hands!

Katy is an adorable grandkid, John!  And she seems plucky too - kinda like my 10 year old granddaughter, Macie.  It appears they aren't afraid of frogs or normally scary stuff, like many of their feminine counterparts are. . . Adorable photo!

Hi Myrl - Yeah, some little girls are just born tomboys. She can rough house with the best of them. We'll have to keep an eye on that one when she becomes a teenager! :-)

I agree - she's a cutie and much braver than I am - I wouldn't hold a frog OR an alligator!!

Very nice photo of your grandaughter. Good luck with your daughter selling her home. I hope the market there in Vancover is better than us here in the lower 48

Looks like she is going to be a heart breaker when she gets older...

Mykel - The gator had his mouth taped shut :-) Don't be a wuss !

Thanks John but she's in the Toronto, Ontario area. Vancouver is on the west coast.

Michael - You got that right. She's going to be scary!

Al and Peggy - Thank you and I know she will be full of surprises when she grows up.

John, She'll probably play a few games of tackle football too until she outshines the boys! The best to your daughter in the sale of her home!
