I don't know if the saying "snug as a bug in a rug" is a universal saying or just one that was used where I grew up, but I think it should be changed a little to fit the Japanese countryside. My new version is "snug as a frog in a door". As I have mentioned before we have lots of little green frogs that join us during the summer months, serenading us with their rather loud croaking and finding original places to hide to escape the heat and scare us to death every time they fall out from their unique hiding places. This particular frog decided it liked the tiny gap between the screen doors and every time we flung open the doors it would hold on for its life and then just start croaking again. I presume it eventually moved off to find a quieter place to hibernate as winter approached as I haven't found a mummified one in the door...... like the ones I find when I'm doing the spring cleaning which have been sandwiched in the slat windows over the winter!
